***Established in 1863, New York City's Woodlawn Cemetery is internationally known as the resting place of a host of history's greats. Non-sectarian and multicultural from its inception, those interred here include giants in the fields of business and industry, civic life, the arts, entertainment, and more.
One of the nation's distinctive "garden cemeteries," Woodlawn provides a spectacular setting to honor the three hundred thousand individuals memorialized on its grounds. Its monuments represent some of the finest examples of memorial architecture and art in the nation, including over thirteen hundred private mausoleums.
Today, the cemetery and crematory continue to support a diverse community, meeting the needs of over three thousand families each year. Woodlawn's staff is actively committed to serving those who come to the cemetery on a daily basis to attend services, remember loved ones, research their ancestors, or participate in our special events and educational programs.***
