Elmwood Cemetery, Memphis Reviews

  • A very historically important cemetery as it contains the final resting places of some of Memphis’ most notorious members of society as well as some who were innocent victims of their time. Definitely worth a visit for anyone interested in Memphis history. Make sure you pay the $10 and take advantage of the guided audio tour (CD) with your vehicle. Walking the cemetery may be difficult for some folks.

  • Even at the end of March, this cemetery is beautiful, I can only imagine what it's like in the middle of spring or the hot steamy summer. There was a wedding going on in the Chapel, what a great idea! We've visited old, historical cemeteries all over the US and the Elmwood is incredible. Restrooms near the office, when it's open. If the Masoleum is open, ignore the creepy feelings and go inside. It's clean, quiet (of course) and the interred range in burial dates. The biggest surprise is the altar/shrine to #Elvis. Amazing! Remember to close the doors behind you. 😉

  • Working for a funeral home gives me a lot of experience with cemeteries. Elmwood is beautiful and historic, and they still have a lot of available spaces.

  • Kenneth Cunningham is a great guy to work with. Highly recommend.

  • My mother is buried under a beautiful tree there, away from traffic and next to an old family friend. My only complaint is that it's closed on sundays. Night time is understandable, , but there shouldn't be restrictions on when you can take flowers or visit a loved one in during the day. I wasn't able to visit my mothers gravesight on Mother's Day this year, for instance. Outside of that one thing, I couldn't be more thankful that she was able to be buried in such a beautiful and historic spot.
