Acerca de

At Westminster Cemetery in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, we have proudly been serving the families of Philadelphia, Montgomery and Delaware counties with compassion and respect since 1894. Our dedicated and caring associates promise to be here for you and your family and are committed to meeting your needs.

Beautiful cemetery grounds

Situated on more than 100 acres of rolling hills with beautiful views of the Schuylkill River and plentiful shade trees, Westminster Cemetery offers a serene and peaceful setting for your loved one's final resting place.

Distinct options to meet your needs

Cemetery Grounds at Westminster CemeteryAt Westminster Cemetery, we combine an old, turn-of-the-century style cemetery with the modern choices today's families seek. Much like the current day architecture of Philadelphia, we have preserved the cemetery’s history while integrating updated features. To better meet your needs, we offer affordable options for traditional ground burial, as well as cremation and above ground entombment. We have a community mausoleum, private estate areas, family columbaria, wall niches, cremation benches, several cremation gardens and some incredibly polished granite memorials.

We Honor Veterans level 3 badgeWe honor veterans

At Westminster Cemetery, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Three Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, our staff is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran's memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

Honoring family memories

For well over a century, the families of the surrounding Montgomery County and Philadelphia communities have placed their trust and confidence in us when it comes to honoring their loved one's memories. We continue that tradition with special events for Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and Veterans Day. We also host an annual Christmas luminary service.

History

Founded by the Danish Catholic Church in the mid-1860s and reopened as a non-denominational cemetery in 1894, Westminster Cemetery has a long and storied tradition of service to the Bala Cynwyd community.

Notable burials

Overlooking the peaceful waters of the Schuylkill River and the hamlets of Manayunk and Roxborough, our picturesque cemetery grounds are the final resting place for many distinguished Pennsylvania residents. Among our dignitaries are: First Lieutenant Orson W. Bennett, a soldier who received the Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor; John Francis Glenn, the commander of the 23rd Pennsylvania regiment at Gettysburg; Charles Elmer Hires, a pharmacist who was one of the developers of root beer; U.S. Congressman Robert Edward Difenderfer; Albert Schoenhut, the inventor of the toy piano and Dustin Kallenbach, an evangelist and author.

An important part of the Bala Cynwyd Community

Private Mausoleum Section at Westminster CemeteryFrom our beautiful turn-of-the-century private family mausoleums and underground crypts to our granite obelisks and hand-sculpted stone memorials, our cemetery is steeped in history. Even long before the property became a cemetery, the Valleyview and Riverview sections of Westminster provided the residents and visitors of southeastern Pennsylvania a place for serene reflection and incredible views.
