A place to preserve your legacy.
The memorials you see at Forest Lawn – grand or modest, humble or ornate – are tributes. They say I love you, and we will never forget you. Whether sculpted in marble or carved in granite, cast in bronze or reflected in a garden, there are countless ways to be remembered. Walk through our heroic gates and you’ll see memorials of all shapes and sizes - square, round, oval, obelisk, rosebud - memorial flower gardens, sculptures, benches, and even one lot where a woman is rumored to have been buried with her Kittinger furniture. If you can think it, we can help you do it, whether you prefer above-ground or in-ground, cremation or a casket, or even both in one space.
At Forest Lawn, a memorial may be as simple as a name and date inscribed on a modest sized piece of granite. Or it can be a sculpture commissioned by an artist whose pieces are exhibited around the world. Unlike other cemeteries, which often restrict your choices to standard “cookie cutter” monuments or flat square or rectangular markers, Forest Lawn is designed around both our natural and built landscape. That’s why we encourage you to add to the beauty of Forest Lawn, and create a beautiful memorial that represents you and your life. If you’d like more information about the countless ways you can tell your life story here at Forest Lawn, please call us anytime at 716-885-1600. One of our very experienced and knowledgeable Family Service Representatives will be happy to assist you.
