Traditional Burial

Along the meandering tree-lined roadways of Glen Eden, each memorial garden is dedicated to one enduring theme. Loved ones find comfort in selecting a grave site to match the memories of a life well lived to a principle or a devotion that helped guide that life. In addition to the beauty of nature and to add to the solace of visitors, each garden of memories features an artistic focal point.

Centuries old oak trees, willows and crab apple trees, interspersed with man-made beauty, follow the 19th century philosophy that by reflecting closeness to nature, we realize a greater closeness to God.

You may choose individual and family lots in any of the gardens in our 140-acre grounds, where personalized lawn-level solid bronze memorials maintain both a distinctive remembrance and the visual appeal of our age-old grounds.

Private Family Estates

8-grave and 4-grave Family Estates is a burial option that has been specifically designed for families to stay together. A brand new concept to the Livonia area, it offers families togetherness, greater privacy, plus the ability to personalize their area.

The Family Estate areas are bounded by attractive four-foot high brick walls. Glen Eden provides each area with small bushes and flowers, and the family may further personalize their estate with plantings and flowers, votive candles, an optional granite bench, and other tributes. The size of the eight-grave area is 21.5' x 20' and the four-grave area is 14.5' x 20'.

For a limited time, families may take advantage of interest-free financing for up to 5 years.

Cremation

Glen Eden offers many options for those who choose the simplicity, dignity and affordability of cremation. Cremated remains may be placed in a traditional burial plot, in a mausoleum niche, or in our niche plaza.

If you prefer a traditional in-ground burial, each of our themed gardens has available spaces. Each space can accept the urns of four loved ones.

If you prefer above ground, indoor inurnment, our Chapel Mausoleum niche spaces provide enduring memorials. You may choose from bronze, glass or marble-fronted niche spaces. A glass-fronted niche can display personal mementos selected by you or your family, and allows for a truly personalized tribute. Permanent bronze bud vases are available for the placement of flowers.

Outdoors, our niche plaza is an ideal setting for families to be close to nature while honoring and remembering loved ones. This beautifully landscaped area features a variety of niche locations. You can choose from the sparkling niche fountain, niche wall, niche garden wall, or the memorial flagpole court that honors those who served their country in military service, and their community as police, firefighters and emergency personnel.

Garden of Grace

This very special cremation garden features a dramatic garden/cloister ambiance for heartfelt, nature-enhanced connections with lost loved ones. Notable are the intimate cul-de-sac areas with perimeter in-ground cremation burial spaces on berms, encircling visitors for visual and physical closeness. Granite benches offer cremation niches. The focal point of one cul-de-sac is a lovely carnelian granite columbarium with a domed top.

Veterans

Traditional In-Ground Veterans’ Memorials
Glen Eden is proud to offer a specially themed resting place -- The Garden of Valor -- for Veterans and their spouses.

Government-Provided Marker
The U.S. Government provides a 24” x12” bronze grave marker free to each veteran. It includes name, dates of birth and death, rank and service, and the military cross.

Optional Upgrades
For individual gravesites, you may purchase a granite base for the government marker, with or without a bronze flower vase that features the military cross and a circle of stars.

For companion memorialization, you can purchase a larger granite base that provides space for the addition of a matching companion memorial-marker and a military-style bronze flower vase.

Cenotaphs for Veterans Buried Elsewhere
In the Memorial Plaza adjacent to the Chapel Mausoleum stands a majestic elevated flagpole, surrounded by our Cenotaph Memorial, featuring a solid bronze bas-relief sculpture depicting those who have served our country.
Wherever your loved one’s remains are located – at Glen Eden or anyplace else -- you can add his or her name and date of birth and death here, to stand with the names of fellow veterans, on an 8” x 2” cast bronze plaque. An additional way to honor his or her contribution, it also provides family and friends with a dedicated and special place to visit.

Memorial Flagpole Court

At Glen Eden’s Memorial Plaza Boulevard, we offer a special way to honor loved ones who served our community and our country – the Memorial Flagpole Court. Here -- surrounding a majestic elevated flagpole bordered by bronze sculptures of police, firefighters, clergy and veterans -- are niches and cenotaphs to honor those who served. The cremated remains of loved ones who wore the uniforms of service can join their compatriots here, in a variety of niche walls. And if the remains are elsewhere, a bronze cenotaph memorial gives family and friends a dedicated and special place to pay homage.
