When a death occurs, cremation is now the most popular choice in Western New York and the nation. But what happens after cremation? Everyone deserves a permanent, protected place of rest, as well as a lasting memorial tribute – both things that only a cemetery can provide. At Oakwood Cemetery, ashes can be buried in ground, and once you select the grave, you can choose how you and/or your loved one will be memorialized (how the grave will be marked). There are a number of options to choose from and countless ways to personalize them to tell your family’s story.
