Elmhurst is a Peaceful & Beautiful Place

Families and friends come to visit or spend a few moments remembering someone special. Because of the natural beauty of a cemetery with its grass, trees and flowers, it serves as a sanctuary where people can go to reflect, contemplate, and sit with nature. Cemeteries are considered sacred grounds. We ask that you respect our rules and regulations when visiting our cemetery.
