Situated 4.5 miles northwest of the City of Chicago on Milwaukee Avenue (Illinois 21), Ridgewood was, in fact, carved from the woods and fields, and managed to maintain its pastoral quality as the community absorbed the surrounding farmlands. It is a 168-acre sanctuary for remembrance and contemplation that offers a quiet, natural respite. Our cemetery is beautifully landscaped with an abundance of stately mature maple, oak, and majestic blue spruce trees. Rolling grounds, winding roads, and tranquil lakes (populated with swans, ducks, migrating birds and other wildlife) add to its bucolic atmosphere. Massive columns supporting skillfully wrought iron gates comprise the main entrance to Ridgewood. The Helen Fell Memorial Bell Tower, mirrored by Tower Lake, is one of the main features at Ridgewood. Amid its arboreal setting, the lake gains a mystical richness; even the soft organ tones from the Bell Tower seem to come from the waters themselves. Although Ridgewood is rich in history dating back to 1920, it easily meets the preferences of modern families for services ranging from traditional ground interment, cremation and urn memorialization, plus mausoleum entombment. Our outdoor Tower Lake Mausoleum (facing beautiful Tower Lake) and the indoor Swan Lake Mausoleum (named for the graceful swans that live there), offer many options for families who select mausoleum entombment. Swan Lake Mausoleum includes a circular design chapel that comfortably seats 200 people. Individual mausoleum crypts, companion crypts, private family rooms, and marble/glass front niches are available in this state-of-the-art building. Overall, Ridgewood is an active and vital cemetery with ample land and other resources available for burial and memorial options, resplendent for today’s generation and those to come. We’re proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. Dignity Memorial providers offer exclusive benefits, including National Transferability of Prearranged Services, the Bereavement Travel Program, the 24-Hour Compassion Helpline® and access to an acclaimed grief management library. As North America’s premier provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services, the Dignity Memorial brand is your assurance of quality, value, caring service and exceptional customer satisfaction. less
