Brookside Cremation Garden

The Brookside Cremation Garden provides an eco-friendly setting for memorialization. Outdoor niches offer both in-ground and above-ground burial for cremated remains. Niches are blended into the landscape or are nestled into natural rock alongside a running brook. Some niches are tucked into the wall of a bridge that spans the stream.

Mausoleum Placement

Mausoleums offer above-ground memorialization of cremated remains. Niches are designed with glass fronts that allow for personal mementos to be placed alongside the urn. Other niches have granite, marble and walnut fronts. Traditional crypts can accommodate urns with cremated remains entombed in a casket.

Cremation Memorial

Built to personal specifications to accommodate the cremated remains of one or more persons, these are increasingly popular for discerning individuals or families who are committed to cremation.

Cremated remains may be scattered in a communal receptacle known as an ossuary. A bronze name plaque placed on a wall near the ossuary permanently memorializes the individual.

The Woolworth Chapel & Crematory

The Woolworth Chapel was built in 1935 after a gracious gift from Fred and Velma Woolworth. The chapel is made of stone, featuring terrazzo marble floors, and a bell tower. The Chapel seats up to 100 people and provides a beautiful setting for services and the like.

Over the years, the Chapel has served many families of all faiths for services and concerts. Today, besides being a beacon of familiarity of Woodlawn, we offer the Chapel to families who prefer to have their committal service inside.

Through arrangements with the funeral home, cremations are professionally and respectfully conducted here, on our premises.  Having the Chapel and Crematory adjoined, affords families the convenience and piece of mind of having the memorial service and cremation take place in the same location.  The Woodlawn Crematory performs over 2,000 cremations on an annual basis.
