But G-d will redeem my soul from the power of the grave. For the Almighty shall receive me.
Psalm 49:7








Our mission at Westlawn Cemetery is to provide personal attention and dignity during difficult times. We are a traditional place for Jewish families to honor those they have lost. If you have not made cemetery and funeral arrangements in advance of need, we encourage you to explore all of our options to determine the one that best meets your family's needs. 


Westlawn Cemetery has provided caring service to Chicagoland's Jewish community since 1937. Nearly 50,000 people have been laid to rest here.

For generations of families, Westlawn has been a special place to come together and honor their loved ones. In 2004, Westlawn's Mausoleum was completed, providing a unique environment for families to pay their respects.


Westlawn Cemetery will work with the funeral services provider of your choice or our partner, Lakeshore Jewish Funerals. For more information on LJF call 773-625-8621.
