History

Irving Park Cemetery was built in an area that was prairie, farm, forest and largely undeveloped land on the outskirts of Chicago. The cemetery was built here because there was a need for a welcoming, non-denominational cemetery to serve the wider community. At the time, other cemeteries were strictly serving the Scandinavian, Greek, Jewish, Catholic and Mason communities.

Irving Park Cemetery was designed to follow the Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie style of architecture. They embedded the cemetery within a beautiful prairie landscape. This gives families convenient access, yet surrounds them with a secluded atmosphere. The cemetery is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Downtown Chicago and the shores of Lake Michigan.

"The staff went beyond any expectations, the day before the internment we had a snow storm with approx 17 inches of snow, it was a horrible eve and the family was concerned that the ceremony wouldn't take place. Irving Park cemetery staff went beyond any expectations to ensure that the interment took place, they were so dedicated and very considerate to our needs, they made it work for the family, clearing a path in the snow to make sure w we're able to lay to rest our family member. Very please with Sylvia and her staff for pulling this off. Greatly appreciated all their effort."
