Woodlawn Cemetery was dedicated in 1850. It is situated less than five miles from the center of Boston, and can be reached easily by automobile or public transportation which stops near the office and front entrance.
A pilgrimage to this 161 year old cemetery should be made by everyone. Woodlawn Cemetery has long been known for its beautiful landscaping, flower beds, trees, and shrubbery. A program of improvement throughout the cemetery and development of new sections has kept us in a position of leadership. We have earned the reputation of providing the best in burial plots, environment and services at a price which compares favorably with other cemeteries of similar character.
Of the many additional services we offer, there is a chapel with seating for over 125 people, Patton Memorial Hall suitable for functions of 75 people, a columbarium, a Crematory and a Community Mausoleum. The columbarium offers a wide selection of niches with either marble or glass fronts ranging in capacity from one to four urns. A wide variety of urns are available for purchase. The Community Mausoleum offers both above ground entombment and niche space for cremated remains.
The cemetery maintains its own greenhouse for the sole benefit of Grave and Lot-Holders. Thus floral decorations and beautiful flower beds may be purchased at a reasonable cost.
Please come and visit, we will be glad to show you around the cemetery.
