Our Story

Sixty years of serving our families.

Those who build cemeteries think not in years, but centuries.  The founders of Woodlawn Memorial Gardens did that almost 60 years ago.  Their vision of quiet, tree-shaded, winding roads between Virginia Beach Boulevard and Newtown Road has come to fruition.  Although the original architects did not live to see the mature beauty of their design, a second generation, represented by Ken Bell and Jane Garland, expanded the founders' vision by establishing a funeral home and crematory in 1997.  With these additions, Woodlawn is able to serve all of your family's needs in one convenient location.  

When the time comes to choose your family's memorial for posterity, the most valuable element in all services is the integrity of the provider.  Woodlawn's long tradition of independent, family operation is your guarantee of service and satisfaction. Our kind and caring Family Service Professionals, Advance Planning Specialists and Funeral Directors stand ready to assist.
