Cremation services at Woodlawn
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in , the funeral home team can explain the process and the different memorial and burial options. From a direct cremation without a service or a witness to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice.
For families who choose the time-honored tradition of cremation, our full-service funeral home has a private crematory on the property. This gives Woodlawn Funeral Home complete control of a cremation from start to finish and means your loved one never leaves our care. If desired, cremated remains may be buried or placed in a niche at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens.
Your caring provider
Woodlawn Memorial Gardens cemetery
With more than 75 acres of rolling green lawns and mature trees, including 40 undeveloped acres for future generations, Woodlawn is a peaceful final resting place and provides families with permanent memorials to return to year after year.
The cemetery offers a broad range of burial options, from traditional ground plots to cremation niches to mausoleum crypts. Large family estates and private family mausoleums are options for families who desire them, and we are able to combine in-ground burial for casketed and cremated remains.
Beautiful gardens and a chapel mausoleum
The cemetery is home to 17 gardens, including many religious sections—King David’s Garden, the Garden of St. Luke, the Garden of the Ten Commandments, to name a few—and three veterans sections. A dedicated Masonic Garden honors members of that brotherhood. A section dedicated to Orthodox Jews allows members of that faith to rest together.
When it comes to memorialization, there are also many options. Selections include flat memorials, upright granite monuments, ledgers, mausoleum plates, memorial benches and more. A new mixed-use estate garden allows for families to be laid to rest together, whether they choose traditional ground burial or cremation burial. The area, near the middle of the cemetery, includes private hedge estates, semiprivate estates, family columbaria, a community columbarium and cremation benches.
Situated in the center of the cemetery, the elegant chapel mausoleum offers indoor and outdoor crypt spaces for single caskets and cremation niches for one to six cremations. With its beautiful, modern architecture and glorious stained-glass art illustrating “Psalm 23,” it is a revered space in which to inter and visit a loved one. Small committal services can be held inside the mausoleum.

Established as a private, family-owned cemetery in 1958, Woodlawn Memorial Gardens encompasses 75 acres between Virginia Beach Boulevard and Newtown Road in Norfolk. When the founders of memorial park were planning their cemetery, they turned to 19th-century rural park cemeteries for inspiration. They envisioned a place with winding, tree-lined roads and lush gardens designed not only for burials, but also for family gatherings, picnics, reading and reflection. The first memorial took place at the cemetery in 1960; today the property provides a place for thousands of families to remember and honor their loved ones, as well as take walks and be with nature.
In 1996, Ken Bell and Jane Garland opened a funeral home and crematory on the grounds of Woodlawn Memorial Gardens, creating a place for families to plan funerals, cremations and burials at convenient sister locations.
In 2018, both funeral home and cemetery became part of the Dignity Memorial® network. As North America's largest group of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, the Dignity Memorial brand is your assurance of quality, value, caring service and exceptional customer satisfaction.
