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
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.
