Forest Lawn West Cemetery is situated in a beautiful pastoral setting that offers upright monuments as well as flat markers. Distinguished mausoleums and private estates are also available. The cemetery grounds are gently rolling and wooded.
Although space is available throughout the cemetery for veterans, we have a designated Veteran's Section with a large memorial honoring our nation's servicemen and women.
The staff of Forest Lawn West is experienced and caring, and many have spent years serving the families of our community. They have a well-deserved reputation for exceptional service.
In 2006, we built a lovely new facility which houses cemetery offices as well as a funeral home and crematory.
Our library features a cozy fireplace for families who can also take advantage of our comfortable private arrangement rooms.
We provide a large, comfortable gathering room with a large bay window, sofa and chairs, and a full kitchen for family gatherings. A children's play room is adjoining with youthful dÉcor and DVDs.
For families who would like to have a reception following their service and groups looking for a comfortable location to host meetings our Reception Room is available.
The staff at Forest Lawn West Cemetery strives to customize our services to our families' personal preferences and we compassionately care for each family on one of the most difficult days of their lives. We take great pride in the fact that we have served families from every area of Mecklenburg and Gaston Counties and maintain a commitment to high standards of service to our community.
