Overview

The Glen Forest Cemetery family strives to provide as many options to our residents as possible. We are constantly monitoring trends in the funeral industry and it is our pledge to offer new and exciting opportunities as they become traditions and not just passing fads.

History

In 2021 the Miami Township Board of Trustees realized that the Glen Forest Cemetery was lacking a necessary option to inter cremated remains other than purchase a full sized traditional grave and then bury the ashes. Not only was there an increasing trend towards cremation instead of a full burial for a deceased loved one but also a desire for burial options other than in-ground. 

Glen Forest Cemetery researched various options including Columbariums, mausoleums, single and double bench niches and urn gardens. Ultimately the decision was made to construct a plaza in the main cemetery large enough to hold 3 Columbariums with space for 150 cremated remains. The Columbarium plaza was officially opened in the fall of 2022.
