Open and welcoming, full of light and beauty, Glen Forest Cemetery is the perfect place to create a service as unique and special as your loved ones, a place to return to in the future for moments of reminiscence and reflection.
Glen Forest has been an innovator in the cemetery industry starting with our Prairie Grass Natural Burial Cemetery, our Memorial Scattering Garden and our new Oak Grove Natural Burial Cemetery. Rest assured we are not done innovating and as the public changes their preferred desire of burial and disposition, we will be there to help find something memorable for your family.
Glen Forest believes that everybody deserves a final resting place that their loved ones can visit and reflect as part of the healing process of grief. With cremations on the rise nationally, we are seeing more people left wondering what to do with the ashes of their loved ones.Glen Forest has invested in several cremation developments from niches in a monument plaza to a natural burial in a field of prairie grass or a scattering of ashes in a memorial garden.
Glen Forest is unique not just for welcoming of everyone, but in the different options we have for burials. For those that want to be interred below ground, we offer lots and spaces next to wooded areas with views of the cemetery and surrounding neighborhoods. From the most historical sections of our cemetery to the newest, we have something for every budget and every family.
One of our newest offerings is Green Burial at Glen Forest Cemetery. We have set aside an area of our cemetery that can support those wishing for a more natural state of disposition with a focus on protecting the environment. This is the only area of the cemetery that where we do not require vaults and embalming is prohibited. Caskets must be made of a quickly decomposing material such as wicker and cannot contain any metal material.
With over 200 years of inventory available, our constant desire to listen, learn and innovate, Glen Forest Cemetery is affordable for every families budget. You simply cannot find a better value than Glen Forest Cemetery.
