Elmwood Cemetery is a place of diversity in the range and scope
of the artistic memorials that have been placed here to honor those
at rest. More than designating a burial location, memorials serve
as a reminder and a celebration of the life of a loved one. From
lawn level markers on individual graves, to family monuments, each
memorial at Elmwood can be customized to a family’s wishes.
You may choose from an array of sizes and styles offered from a
selection of top quality manufacturers. Using the finest materials,
from bronze to granite, available in a variety of shades and colors,
your memorial can be personalized with a meaningful statement and
design. An experienced advisor will review the variety of choices
available so that you can create a memorial that will be a lasting
tribute for you and your loved ones.
