Awareness and acceptability of cremation has increased over the past 20 years. People select cremation for a number of different reasons.

For some, cremation is considered the last part of the funeral service. Others choose to have their remains buried in a cemetery like others who choose in-ground burial or above-ground mausoleum interment.

We believe it is important for every person to have a place where they can be remembered. If you or a family member wishes to be cremated, we encourage them to have a place in a cemetery where future generations can come and visit.

Woodlawn has a long tradition of assisting families with cremation burial and remembrance choices from mausoleum niches to in-ground burial in our Green Garden or a cenotaph on a stone.

We also recently introduced on-site cremation and memorial services as options. Families can now accompany a loved one to the crematory or host viewings at the state-of-the-art Cremation Center at Woodlawn.
