                                                THE WOODLAWN... MORE THAN A CEMETERY
A cultural resource and veritable outdoor museum, Woodlawn has been an active, 400-acre, non-sectarian cemetery since its inception in 1863. A National Historic Landmark, our celebrated lot owners comprise artists and writers, business moguls, civic leaders, entertainers, jazz musicians, suffragists and more. With a wide variety of burial, cremation and pre-planning options, families look to Woodlawn to provide answers to questions regarding final arrangements.
The Woodlawn Cemetery offers many options for proper memorialization of a person’s life following cremation. With both above- and in-ground burial options, as well communal scattering, Woodlawn can help create a beautiful memorial to a life well lived.
