Rose Hill Burial Park ranks among the area’s largest and most distinguished cemeteries. Although it was officially founded in the '20s, there are areas in the park where burials took place even earlier. The name Rose Hill was derived from the landscaping and nursery service originally located on the property. Rose Hill was an early cemetery leader, becoming one of the 1st cemeteries to set up an endowment care fund, ensuring that its grounds would be perpetually cared for—even if no more burials took place.
Over the years, many of Akron’s most prominent citizens have been laid to rest on our serene acres. Industrial and religious leaders, and even a Medal of Honor recipient, can be found memorialized on the grounds. As the park continued to grow, sections were added for people of certain organizations and religions beliefs—highlighting their service or faith. Today, Rose Hill has sections dedicated to those who served in the military, members of the Masons and the Order of the Eastern Star, and people of the Jewish faith. In the early '80s, Rose Hill opened our beautiful mausoleum complex.
Modern funeral home added
In the early '90s, Rose Hill Burial Park became the only cemetery in the area to have a funeral home adjacent to its lovely grounds, giving families an added convenience. Since that time, Rose Hill Funeral Home has maintained involvement in our community.
