Forest Hill Cemetery

Aurora’s Forest Hill Cemetery is located on the south side of the City among majestic white pines.  Owned and operated by the City of Aurora, the Cemetery offers traditional casket and cremain burials, as well as above ground cremain inurnment in one of our three Columbaria.  Records indicate that the first burial in the Cemetery was J. Makinen on August 17, 1907.  The first inurnment in the Columbarium was L. Gradisher on May 20, 2008.. 

Located in the center of the Cemetery is the Veterans Memorial, which is the gathering place for our traditional Memorial Day Service, sponsored by the American Legion Post 241.

Locating a loved one is made easier by accessing our Information Kiosk, which contains a map and directory.  Our Veterans Honor Roll and Memorial Fund Honor Roll are also presented within these walls. 

Enhancements to the Cemetery are tribute to the many families who have honored their loved ones by contributing to the Memorial Fund.  Aurora Forest Hill Cemetery is maintained by the City of Aurora.  Although not a full service Cemetery, we strive to make it a welcoming and comforting place for families to memorialize their loved ones.
