Sylvania Hills Memorial Park

Located on the same grounds as the funeral home, Sylvania Hills Memorial Park has been a leading cemetery serving families in Beaver County since 1938. There are nearly 35,000 interments and 5,000 entombments. Nestled in the rolling hills of Daugherty Township and Rochester, Pennsylvania, our cemetery is known for its lovely grounds, stately trees and striking features, such as Chimes Tower, Last Supper and the Resurrection of Christ. The most noted feature is the majestic mausoleum with its cathedral architectural design.

Affordable funeral and cremation services

Estate area at Sylvania Hills Memorial Park. For families who choose cremation, we offer glass and bronze niches, as well as bronze memorials and granite memorial benches. Exclusive estate areas have been developed in the park that allow families to select bench and gated estates as well as private family mausoleums. Personalized landscaping is available to match each family's style.

In addition to our private family estates and mausoleum, we offer numerous lovely gardens for families choosing ground burial. We have 102 acres of beautifully manicured grounds with 23 separate gardens. We have traditionally been a flat-bronze memorial only cemetery, but the newer Garden of the Laurels allows families the option of upright granite memorials.

Memorial Day celebrations

During the Memorial Day holiday, over 7,000 American flags are placed at the veterans' graves by 100s of volunteers. They flow in the late spring breeze, creating a memorable image of honorable service and freedom.
