Scenic cemetery grounds
Often called the “jewel” of Salem, our beautifully landscaped 70-acre cemetery features a large variety of trees and plants, and wildlife is abundant throughout the park. All seasons bring their special sights, and every month something is in bloom at Belcrest Memorial Park. Even in winter, the strawberry madrones display their flowers.
Variety of burial, cremation options
Belcrest Memorial Park is a non-denominational, endowment care cemetery that serves all faiths and honors our veterans. Interment options include traditional burial, double-depth lawn crypts, mausoleum crypts, and columbarium niches made of glass, marble and bronze. We also have a lakeside cremation garden.
All of our burial and cremation services are designed to help you through one of the most personal and challenging stages of life. We understand losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are committed to helping you with compassionate, professional and personal service. Many of our associates have family members at Belcrest, and every family is treated with respect and care.

Belcrest Memorial Park and Mausoleum has served the memorial needs of the Salem community since its establishment in 1928 by W.A. Laidlaw as one of the 1st and largest endowment care cemeteries on the West Coast.
Cemetery, mausoleum amenities
Belcrest Memorial Park is located on gentle green rolling hills, atop a bell-shaped crest overlooking the Willamette Valley in south Salem. Beautiful landscaping, including hundreds of varieties of trees, shrubs and flowers, enhance the natural beauty of the cemetery’s 70 acres.
Belcrest was a tulip farm before the founding of the memorial park. Black-and-white photos of the property at that time are on display in our small museum, as well as records of funerals of many state governors, senators, representatives and other prominent members of the Salem community.
Local legacy of care
Belcrest Memorial Park has served families in Salem for more than 90 years and continue to serve as one of the premier cemetery and mausoleums on the West Coast. Many of our employees have been with us for more than 25 years. Our heritage speaks for itself.
