West Laurel Hill Cemetery is extremely impressive. In my opinion, this is a 5 star, top 1% percent cemetery.
My grandfather is buried here. I stopped by the cemetery's main office to find his grave location. And I felt like I received the finest in hospitality from the staff here.
Classy people. Classy place.
This non-profit cemetery is 187 acres in size. It was established in 1869, and it is loaded full of mausoleums and monuments of all kinds.
Upon entering, it felt a little like Longwood Gardens to me. The grounds are well-cared-for. A beautiful park-like setting exists here. People jog, walk, and ride their bikes along the cemetery's network of roadways.
They have a brand new pet cemetery section. They do green burials. They serve people of all faiths or no faith. Anybody can be interred here. In addition, they have an on-site non-profit funeral home.
West Laurel Hill Cemetery has sufficient financial resources to care for the property in perpetuity, (probably). Proof:
As of October 2017, single burial lots range in price from $3150 to $6500, depending upon the section.
