An inclusive funeral home
The non-denominational Gary L. Kaufman Funeral Home offers funeral services for people of all backgrounds. The Vermillion Chapel, named after the 1st person buried at Meadowridge Memorial Park cemetery, seats 150 people. This formal chapel has a piano and podium, and it is larger even than most Elkridge-area churches. If you are looking to seat more than 150 people, the Vermillion Chapel also has an attached vestibule and portico with speakers that allow overflow attendees to hear a service.

Meadowridge Memorial Park cemetery
Split by a tiered pond with a fountain and a bridge, Meadowridge Memorial Park is a gorgeous cemetery and among the more beautiful, tranquil places in the Baltimore area.
Beautiful cemetery gardens
Private family estates sit alongside the pond, and 37 garden sections allow for in-ground burial or above-ground entombment. Those of Asian descent often choose burial in the Hanwoori garden. We also have sections for veterans, babies and children, and pets. Meadowridge Memorial Park also has 3 mausoleums, as well as a cremation garden, cremation benches and cremation estates.
Within the cemetery there are several distinctive sculptures, including praying hands and a depiction of the Last Supper. One of our cemetery gardens has a lighthouse for cremated remains and a wishing well. The pet cemetery has a sculpture of Noah’s Ark.
The mausoleum chapel seats about 35 people for a small committal service.

When you are ready, the cemetery team will work with you to find the best burial option for yourself or your family. We invite you to tour the spectacular grounds at Meadowridge Memorial Park to see its beauty for yourself. Call us if you would like a guided tour.
The team at Meadowridge Memorial Park is involved in the Elkridge and surrounding communities. The cemetery hosts a variety of events, including an Easter sunrise service and a December holiday remembrance. Every Mother’s Day, the cemetery hosts a cookout and gives out flowers and gifts to those visiting their mothers, grandmothers and other beloved family members. We remember veterans on Memorial Day, when the team places flags on the graves of military service members buried in the cemetery.
