Established as a non-profit cemetery in 1845, Spring Grove has served the community with dignity and respect for over seven generations and is a trusted part of Cincinnati’s history. Our city’s rich tradition and history is beautifully preserved among acres of towering trees, soothing lakes, and winding roadways. Cincinnati families from all walks of life including such notables as Taft, Kroger and Procter have entrusted Spring Grove to preserve their unique family history.
Honoring a loved one's life through a thoughtfully planned tribute provides a meaningful way for family and friends to reflect on the life of their loved one, support one another and begin the process of grieving.
Grief is a normal, natural, and necessary response when we experience the death of someone who has been a part of our life. The manner by which one adapts to losing a loved one is a very individual process. It is important to work through the grieving process and to understand the emotions, thoughts, feelings and behaviors that accompany grief and mourning. Our personalized care extends beyond the funeral service, reaching out to families with compassionate bereavement support services and resources.
Since its founding 150 years ago, Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum has been an important part of Cincinnati's heritage. It serves as a guardian of much of Cincinnati's past. In 1995, the Board of Trustees established the Spring Grove Heritage Foundation to educate the public about and promote the natural beauty and historic integrity of Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum in ways not normally covered by the cemetery's operations. Through the sponsorship of events, tours, workshops and seminars, the Foundation serves to promote Spring Grove's cultural, historic, and natural resources. Often referred to as a "museum without walls," Spring Grove possesses fine art and architecture of eclectic styles as diverse as any collection.
