Turning to the rich history of 19th century rural park cemeteries, the architects of Woodlawn Memorial Gardens preserved the historic elements of a time when cemeteries were not only places of mourning, but places for socializing and enjoying activities like family gatherings, picnics, reading, reflection, music and other accouterments of the garden cemetery movement.
Woodlawn Memorial Gardens provides families with exceptional settings for the permanent memorials of loved ones. With acres of rolling green lawns and majestic trees, Woodlawn is a perfect place for families to return, year after year, in remembrance and honor.
Sometimes one family member wants to be buried and another wishes to be cremated, yet they want to be together. Because we know this to be a common wish, Woodlawn Memorial Gardens makes it simple for families. We can easily arrange for a common burial of both your loved ones in the same plot.
Woodlawn's Family Services Professionals are honored to guide you through the cemetery grounds, explore your perspectives, and make suggestions.
Traditionally, in-ground burial has been the choice of many families. Woodlawn provides families with many in-ground burial options, including large family estate lots, multiple space lots and single grave spaces. Depending on the needs of the family, there are many areas throughout the Gardens from which to choose.
Woodlawn Memorial Gardens maintains a variety of facilities for the interment of cremated remains, giving you a full selection of urns, niches and mausoleums. For those families who desire it, we are also able to combine in-ground burial for both casketed and cremated remains.
Mausoleums allow for above ground entombment in community buildings or family structures. At one time the advantages of mausoleum entombment were available only to royalty, the famous, and the very wealthy. Well-known mausoleums include the Taj Mahal, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Egyptian Pyramids. Mausoleum property is now affordable to many.
The Woodlawn Memorial Gardens Chapel Mausoleum offers crypt space for single caskets and cremation niches which can hold one to six cremations. With its beautiful, modern architecture enhanced by glorious stained glass windows, our chapel mausoleum is an elegant, inviting space in which to inter and visit your loved one.
Private Family Mausoleums
Only recently have family mausoleums become an affordable and viable option for more and more families. Annual sales of family mausoleums have increased 2200% in the past 20 years and are expected to increase in the future.
Selecting a family mausoleum is a sound and permanent investment requiring thoughtful, thorough consideration of many factors. We suggest an orderly step-by-step approach to eliminate uncertainties, minimize expenses and assure selection of the family mausoleum that meets all of your requirements.
