Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens cemetery

Cremation garden at Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens. Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens was established in 1960 to provide a beautiful final resting place for residents of Fort Lauderdale and surrounding areas. Lushly landscaped and populated by wildlife, it is one of the few cemeteries in South Florida that has a funeral home on the property.

The 30-acre cemetery property includes 2 chapels: the Life Well Celebrated® event center and the Shrine of Light Chapel inside the Pyramid.

Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens offers many burial options: above-ground crypts in the Pyramid or on the lawn, in-ground burials, mausoleum entombments, a cremation garden and more. Gardens of Living Christ, Garden of St. John and Garden of St. Matthew are often chosen by those of the Christian faith, but the cemetery has many beautiful acres of nondenominational gardens for all.

The Pyramid

Front exterior at Forest Lawn Funeral HomeConstructed in 1975 as a cemetery office, chapel and space for above-ground burial, the Forest Lawn Pyramid is the largest pyramid outside of Egypt used for entombment of human remains. All 4 walls inside and outside the pyramid contain marble crypts. At the center of the 2-floor Pyramid lies a large, open chapel with a glass roof. The chapel inside the Pyramid is a popular location for committal services.

Honoring veterans and others

The teams at Forest Lawn Funeral Home and Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens care about their friends and neighbors in the Fort Lauderdale community.

Every Veterans Day, we team up with a Boy Scouts troop and the U.S. Coast Guard to place flags on the graves of all the veterans at the cemetery. We also participate in the Homeless Veterans Burial Program. These are just 2 of the ways we recognize and honor the men and women who serve our country.
