Bigelow Chapel December Open Houses

November 15, 2018

Bigelow Chapel has been revitalized to meet the changing needs of families and the visiting public. A new entrance providing universal access graciously welcomes everyone arriving to attend a private family service or a public event. New multi-use gathering spaces provide numerous options for intimate memorial services in a non-denomination setting, informal receptions following services or burials, and a host of public events. A new state-of-the-art Crematory, replacing its previous facility, has prepared Mount Auburn to meet the growing public interest in cremation and positioned the Cemetery as a 21st-century leader within industry.

Join us for an Open House!
Both events are free and open to the public!
