A place to preserve your legacy.
For many people, cremation is the right choice at the end of their life’s journey. In fact, in Western New York, roughly 50% of all deaths now result in cremation. But what happens after cremation?
Everyone deserves a permanent, protected place to rest. At Forest Lawn, you can have whatever type of funeral service you want, followed by cremation, and then placement of the cremated body either above ground (in a niche) or in-ground (scattering or burial). This allows for the natural grieving process to take place in a sacred environment. It also lets you create a permanent memorial – a plaque, a bench, even a sculpture – where loved ones can come to pay their respects. And because Forest Lawn is protected by both the state and the federal government (on the National and State Registers of Historic Places), it will always be here, just as it is now, for future generations. If you'd like more information about cremation and the permanent memorialization options available to you here at Forest Lawn, call us anytime at 716-885-1600.
