Lincoln Memorial Cemetery
Lincoln Memorial Cemetery opened in 1927. With many mature trees and a pond, the cemetery is very calm and peaceful, with a park-like atmosphere. Families of fox are occasionally spotted on the grounds as well, making for a nice surprise.
37 different gardens
Spanning the park's 130 acres of carefully tended lawns are 37 different gardens. Many of the gardens reflect religious and patriotic themes. We also have a special garden for veterans which also showcases the Avenue of Flags. A large stone obelisk, another special feature of the property, can be found in the Masonic Circle.
Our cemetery has a large Catholic garden in conjunction with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lincoln, although you do not need to be affiliated with a specific church to be buried there.
Lincoln Memorial Cemetery offers a variety of burial options, including traditional in-ground burial, lawn crypts, mausoleum entombment and cremation choices.
There are 6 outdoor mausoleums and 1 indoor mausoleum. Constructed with enduring materials, these magnificent buildings are beautiful spaces for above-ground entombment and cremation interment. The mausoleum chapel is available for committal services.
The lakefront cremation garden is another option for those choosing cremation. This garden lies at the east edge of the cemetery's pond and is a naturally beautiful final resting place.
We welcome you to visit the cemetery anytime. If you would like a guided tour, please call us and we'll be glad to assist you.
On-site flower shop
Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home is glad to offer families and visitors an on-site flower shop to make your floral needs more convenient. The floral associates are available to help you choose anything from a casket spray to an elaborate bouquet. The shop offers seasonal placement services as well. Just let us know what you're thinking and we'll create something beautiful.
