Bronswood Cemetery

Oak Brook, Illinois

  • Bronswood Cemetery Walk of Memories Section Plan

Project Description



The amount of people choosing cremation has been growing at an increasing pace each year, and they also continue to look for a greater variety of burial options than have traditionally been offered in most cemeteries.

In coordination with StoneMor Partners L.P. and Pinnacle Nationwide LLC, Mekus Tanager developed a section plan for new burial options and features within Bronswood Cemetery. Primary goals for this project were to create a cremation garden along the edge of the cemetery’s property. The section plan developed creates a naturalistic winding pathway which curves amongst cremation estates and burial options, such as cremation boulders and pillars. Additionally, a committal shelter was added both for memorial services and as a place for reflection.
