St. George's Memorial Garden

St. George's Memorial Garden

The Memorial Garden of St. George's Church is located on the hillside adjacent to the north wall of the church, in the shadow of the cross. The Memorial Garden is a fitting final resting place for ashes. The Episcopal Church recommends cremation as an appropriate alternative to traditional burial.

Interment of the ashes in this beautiful garden can be a great comfort and a continual reminder that we share with those who have departed in the fellowship of the saints. Bronze plaques on the Memorial Wall in the Cloister Garden bear the name and dates of birth and death of each person whose ashes are interred there.

When death comes to a member of the family, we recommend that you contact your priest without delay. Members, relatives and friends of St. George's may also pre-pay for interment in the Cloister Memorial Garden. Please contact the parish office regarding the guidelines for interment and associated fees.
