About

Forest Lawn Cemetery is a Nebraska landmark, with a history intertwined with that of our proud state. As a not-for-profit institution, Forest Lawn Cemetery is dedicated to Omaha residents. Our tax status allows us to reinvest in the maintenance of our beautiful grounds and architecture for the benefit of the community we serve. It also allows us the opportunity to build the cities newest funeral home, offering features simply not available at most funeral homes with very competitive pricing.

Forest Lawn Funeral Home & Memorial Park is part of Nebraskan history. A serene oasis since 1885, our cemetery is a resting place to historical figures, heroic veterans, and our community’s friends, family, and ancestors.

Our crematory performed the first cremation in Nebraska. Our 349 acres of velvety hills is annually ranked as one of the nation’s most breathtaking memorial parks. Our historic chapel dons custom stained glass windows, marble, gold and mother of pearl interior design and an antique Otis elevator. With such a rich history and deep Omaha roots, it is impossible to compare us to anyone else in the area.
