History

Rose Hill Burial Park ranks among the area’s largest and most distinguished cemeteries. Although it was officially founded in the 1920s, there are areas in the park where burials took place even earlier. The name Rose Hill comes from the landscaping and nursery service originally located on the property.

Rose Hill was an early leader in the cemetery world, becoming one of the first to set up an endowment care fund, ensuring that our grounds will be perpetually cared for.

Growing with the community

A string of American flags hung outside during a patriotic holiday 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, have been memorialized here.

As the park continued to grow, sections were added for people of certain organizations and religious beliefs—highlighting their service and 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 a beautiful mausoleum complex.

Adding a modern funeral home

In the early 1990s, 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 been a vital part of the community.

"Rose Hill Funeral Home is a beautiful facility, not your usual drab, sad looking facility. Having an event room in addition to a lovely and large chapel made it it very easy to plan a one stop/day event. Our guests were very impressed with the facility and thoroughly enjoyed have a breakfast brunch prior to the memorial service, something most people had never considered prior to this event."

"Rose Hill Funeral Home facilities are beautiful. The chapel is large and lovely. They offer an event room for pre/post funeral activities and even have a great children's room! The mausoleum has been well maintained. (A number of years ago they dealt with water/mold issues and it wasn't a pleasant place.)Now it is a very comforting place to visit. The intimacy of the chapels in the mausoleum is appreciated by our small family who gathered to pay our final respects to our Mother."

"My family and I were well satisfied with Rose Hill Funeral Home. Family and friends mentioned how the service was geared towards my husband with the music, pictures and how his grandkids letters to him were not just put in the casket but in his hand. I would recommend their services."
