Veterans Burial Garden at North Lawn Cemetery

Honoring U.S. Veterans and Their Families

At the heart of Veterans Garden stands a beautiful monument honoring those who’ve served in the United States Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. Burial spaces for honorably discharged veterans surround the monument. Burial spaces are provided free to veterans, with adjacent spaces available for spouses.

Bronze or granite flat markers are available at no charge from the government. Or, if you prefer, you may opt to purchase an upright monument.

We have been told over and over again that North Lawn Cemetery is the most beautiful cemetery in the Stark County area. North Lawn Cemetery helps to provide the true peace of mind and security that families need to feel when making their cemetery arrangements. The Veterans Garden at North Lawn allows for a local, dedicated memorial for your veteran, keeping loved ones closer.
