History

Oak Hill Cemetery was incorporated in January 1902 by a group of men of Swedish descent. They established the cemetery to serve Swedish families on the south side of Chicago. Our cemetery was dedicated on Oct. 19, 1902. The first burial took place just a few days later on Oct. 26, 1902.

Cemetery features, amenities

Designed by architect Conny Ramberg, Oak Hill Cemetery Chapel-Mausoleum was built by E.P. Strandberg Co. in 1921. The chapel was dedicated in May of the following year.

The building itself is impressive with stained-glass windows, huge pillars, marble interior, crypts and niches, but it is the sentiment on the granite above the door that shares the message the association wanted to express: "May this temple ever proclaim liberty in religion. The existence of an omnipresent God, the immortality of the soul."

Today, Oak Hill Cemetery is a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, the largest group of funeral, burial, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America.

"Oak Hill Cemetery is a place that feels like home for your love ones. I reside out of state but each of my visits gave me solace as how well manicured and prestine the grounds are maintained. The staff is very professional and works with the family to minimum the stresses of the last mile. I highly recommend them."

"We live out of town, so all of the arrangements for my mother's burial were done through the manager, Les. He helped with absolutely everything and answered all questions promptly. He is very organized and extremely professional. It's strange to say, but Les made the whole affair very pleasant and sweet. He was gentle and caring with family members and remembered my cousins who had been there a few months previously to bury their mother. I highly recommend working with Les."
