About Glen Eden
We began serving the community
when a small group of investors started the cemetery in 1929, when the landscape
was dirt roads and sprawling farmland. In 1932, a twist of fate transferred
ownership and operation of the cemetery to four Lutheran churches. Now, after
80 years serving families of all Christian faiths in Livonia, Glen Eden offers families
additional choices with the same high standards of individual care and understanding.
• The serene St. Gabriel Mausoleum in Livonia for indoor entombment
• For families in Macomb County, the choice of traditional in-ground burial, above ground entombment or cremation niches at Glen Eden East.
• The Redeemer Columbarium for inurnment on church property, at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Birmingham.
Non-profit, strongly endowed and financially secure, an endowment trust fund provides the resources for Glen Eden’s perpetual care and quality service, securing its place in our community for generations.
Glen Eden’s mission is clear and is a written promise to each family it serves.
“Glen Eden Memorial Park, operated by a community of Lutheran churches, will serve each customer individually and fully with Christian caring and the highest standards of excellence. By serving each customer, one at a time, Glen Eden will fulfill its vision of being the premier provider of bereavement services. Such levels of service, coupled with prudent management of the fiscal and physical resources of the cemetery, will ensure its religious, cultural, historical and environmental importance perpetually.”
A blending of nature and art creates an atmosphere of peace and tranquility that comforts families visiting Glen Eden. Inspirationally designed landscaping, enduring monuments and the highest standards of architectural design create an inviting, spiritual oasis. A design of natural beauty, reflecting a closeness with nature, and so a closeness to God.
Everyone wants to be remembered. A permanent memorial acknowledges life and is a personal reflection of the life led. Christians strongly believe in families and a permanent tribute provides future generations a setting to remember loved ones and preserve family history. Glen Eden’s promise is to endure throughout the generations.
Glen Eden offers Christian burial at two Memorial parks – in Livonia and Macomb Township, and administers Columbarium inurnment principally for members at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Birmingham, where inurnment is also available for all Christians. One location is sure to be close to home. Whether it’s visiting often or taking the opportunity to drop by, families are uplifted being able to stay connected to loved ones.
