À propos

Established in 1860—the year President Abraham Lincoln was elected—Oakland Memory Lanes is a cemetery rich in history. For more than 150 years, Oakland Memory Lanes in Dolton, Illinois, has nurtured a tradition of honoring U.S. military veterans and public servants.

Honoring the past and present

Two Civil War cannons stand silent watch at the entrance to the cemetery. The Little Arlington veterans section includes a prominent statue dedicated to "our fallen comrades," referring to those who died in the Civil War. The Grand Army of the Republic erected the statue in 1907, and the Women's Relief Corps dedicated it in 1911.

More recently, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., we erected our Remembrance Monument, dedicated to the victims of the attacks and saluting men and women of the fire, police and emergency departments who risk their lives daily.

A beautiful cemetery property

Front exterior building at Oakland Memory Lanes

Serene and wooded, Oakland Memory Lanes displays colorful foliage in the fall and manicured green lawns dotted with picturesque statues all year long. Rolling hills, winding pathways and well-groomed trees that offer visitors shade and shelter make the cemetery an especially beautiful place of remembrance and reflection. Many family monuments—some dating back more than a century—adorn our acres. Features that provide visible testaments of faith span sections from the Prayer, Resurrection and Christus Garden to the Sanctuary and Garden of the Cross.

Burial and cremation services

Oakland Memory Lanes is a full-service cemetery with burial and cremation services designed to meet the needs of a range of religious and cultural heritages of the Dolton area.

Steeped in the past while changing with the times, Oakland Memory Lanes proudly carries on its traditions, honoring what it has held precious for generations: the importance of history, the values of family and preserving the memories of loved ones.

We are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, burial, cremation and cemetery service providers, and we are here when you need us.

History

George and Catherine Dolton established Oakland Memory Lanes in 1860—the year Abraham Lincoln was elected president of the United States. The following year, in April of 1861, the American Civil War began, and thus our tradition of honoring military veterans and public servants.

A Civil War cemetery

Two Civil War cannons, owned by the American Legion Paul Gall Post 303, stand silent watch at the entrance of our cemetery, which is sometimes referred to as Old Dolton Cemetery. The Little Arlington veterans section features a prominent statue dedicated to “our fallen comrades,” referring to those who died in the Civil War. The statue was erected in 1907 by the Grand Army of the Republic and was dedicated by the Women’s Relief Corps in 1911. Later, the contributions of G.W. Spencer (Post 489, Department of Illinois GAR) allowed for an Old Glory plaque dedication in May 1971.

Honoring 9/11 victims

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., we erected our Remembrance Monument, which was paid for solely with contributions from families with cemetery properties and a few Dolton business owners. The monument is dedicated to the victims of the attacks and salutes men and women of the fire, police and emergency departments who risk their lives daily to protect our nation.

Today, Oakland Memory Lanes is a member of the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, burial, cremation and cemetery service providers.

"My mom prepaid for the plot and Cemetery services which was very helpful. There's always so much to do and it was nice not to worry about this one item. In addition, I was worried about having issues with prepaid like something might have change, but it did not everything went great."
