Our attentive team of funeral directors will listen to your stories and create the ideal fitting tribute.

Funeral home amenities

When you step into Rose Hill Funeral Home, adorned with intricate stained-glass windows, you will experience the warmth of our interfaith chapel.

History

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.

Cemetery growth

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.

"The staff was always there if I had any questions and responded quickly if they were not available. Patty Cusma was our family service counselor that helped with my Mothers pre-arrangements and did a great job. Our family and friends were very impressed not only of the staff, or facilities but had never been to a funeral where refreshments were served. The company should be very honored to have this location and staff in the Akron area. David, John and all the staff were great. I highly recommend Rose Hill Funeral Home and highly recommend making arrangements ahead time so you know what your parents wishes are in its entirety."
