If you need to find a cemetery in Ohio for either a loved one, or to plan your own burial in advance, this guide will walk you through some of your many options and present a list of Ohio cemeteries.
What factors should you take into consideration when choosing a cemetery in Ohio? It will likely come down to location (particularly proximity to visiting family), amenities (does it offer the type of burial you want? What about memorial benches or other additions?), and appearance (do you appreciate the look? Does it seem like a place where family could reflect fondly?)
For example, if you appreciate mountain and views of nature, Butler County Memorial Park in Hamilton sits at one of the highest elevations in the area and therefore offers a bird's-eye view of nature in all directions. And Crown Hill Memorial Park in Cincinnati boasts the highest point in Hamilton County, while also being close to the premier art, culture, and recreational offerings you’d expect of that city.
Peninsula residents consider their town to be a haven of lush green nestled between Akron and Cleveland – all the perks of small town life, with access to city amenities. This small-town charm is evident in the veterans' section at Northlawn Memorial Gardens, known for its Avenue of Flags, with 450 full-size flags flown at 20-foot intervals on Memorial Weekend.
If you’re into lush gardens within an Ohio cemetery, and aptly named West Memory Gardens in Moraine features five gardens: The Garden of Christus, Garden of Devotion, Garden of Brotherhood and Love, Garden of Freedom, and the Garden of Hope. Additionally, Resthaven Memory Gardens in Avon features an 18-foot granite Bible with The Lord's Prayer.
