A Place to Remember

At Lakewood, we believe it’s time to take a fresh look into the ways we approach death and remembering.  To reimagine how we come together to honor and memorialize life.  From Memorial Day to Earth Day events to lakeside cremation gardens to Lantern-Lighting Celebrations.  We invite you to come see the possibilities for yourself.

Why Lakewood

Since 1871, Lakewood has been helping families honor, celebrate and remember their loved ones in a place of rich history and extraordinary beauty that will be protected and cared for forever.
