New York’s World Class Cemetery Since 1863

WELCOME TO WOODLAWN

Founded in 1863, Woodlawn is recognized as one of the most historically significant properties in America. It’s also the final resting place of leaders, legends, and loved ones whose lives have touched our own. Its memorials represent the largest and finest collection of funerary art in the country – and that’s only the beginning of what Woodlawn offers our community.

This is a place that serves the families of New York and surrounding areas during their time of need. A place of education and exploration, where stories are told and memories are made. It’s also an open-air art gallery, a living history museum, and an urban oasis that attracts 100,000 visitors every year from all over the world. We invite you to come and see the beauty, the majesty, and the history that sets Woodlawn apart.

Choosing Cremation

Crematory


For nearly 50 years, Woodlawn has operated an on-site crematory. Through arrangements with the funeral home, we conduct cremations here on our premises. The Woolworth, our elegant indoor event space, is available for services or celebrations of life.

Advance Planning

When you attend one of our planning seminars or meet with one of our Family Service Associates, we will explain everything you need to consider about cemetery property.

With our own crematory on-site, our Family Service Associates can help you learn about the process, make pre-arrangements, and discuss your options for memorialization.

National Historic Landmark

The Woodlawn Cemetery was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2011.

Founded in 1863 by some of New York City’s most prominent citizens, Woodlawn tells the story of New York and the nation from the Industrial Age through today. Nearly every industry, class, religion and ethnicity is represented by the veritable “Who’s Who of American History,” reflecting stories of art and engineering, industrialization, cultural and societal development.

In a rare instance, the Woodlawn gravesite of Admiral David Glasgow Farragut, was also designated as a National Historic Landmark, within a landmark, and this unique plaque adorns his gravesite. Learn more about – and visit – the rare pieces of history found at Woodlawn among our Notable Residents.

Natural Retreat Within the City

ARBORETUM


Committed to preservation of this National Historic Landmark, Woodlawn management and staff have achieved the status of Accredited Level II Arboretum, through valuable services including education for thousands of annual visitors and guests, as well as events. The city’s “Great Trees” can be found among the growing collection of renowned artisan-designed mausolea that have long kept the cemetery as one of the most famous worldwide.
