History

Monticello Memory Gardens was founded in 1930. We have been proud to be the Charlottesville cemetery that generations of families have chosen because of our care and attention to detail.

The Thomas Jefferson connection

Our grounds are located less than 1 mile from Monticello, the home of our 3rd president, Thomas Jefferson. Our gardens border the Thomas Jefferson Foundation property. Monticello was the pet project and elaborate home of Thomas Jefferson. In fact, the president loved Monticello so much that he is buried there.

We understand that families may want additional space for the next generations to come. Monticello Memory Gardens owns many acres of undeveloped land to help ensure that a family's heritage can be continued here for many years into the future.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Linda provided an exceptional level of care and attention to detail throughout our experience. She even arranged to be at the service on her day off and helped us find the perfect spot for my sister's burial after offering us many options. Her insights and comforting words were just what we needed and helped us make difficult decisions. Some of the words that describe her: caring, hope, thorough, flexible, aware of our needs, allowing us time to choose, making our experience personal, going the extra mile, helped us remember our loved one's happy times. She was a gift to us at a very difficult time in our lives."

"About costs, I have no basis for comparison so my response [somewhat higher than expected] may not be relevant."

"These kind of times losing my father at his young age was hard enough on me and my family but Linda went over and above and everything was explained very well and she was very attentive to our needs. I also bought another plot for my mother next to my dad and I believe my dad would be pretty happy with his resting place. I will enjoy visiting him so close to my home and where he passed by every day to get to town. Thank you Linda for all your help it was so much appreciated."
