Founded as Manchester Cemetery Association in 1878 by the Harter family, it was incorporated as Oaklawn Cemetery in 1914. With almost 18 acres of quiet, reverent burial spaces, Oaklawn offers the community one of the finest maintained cemeteries in the tri-state, located at 600 Beckley Street, North Manchester, Indiana.
Along with burial spaces for traditional burial and cremation, Oaklawn offers monuments, markers, burial vaults, and urn vaults. These items can be pre-arranged with the cemetery so that all decisions are complete for your family when the need arises.
The cost of a burial space is currently $470.00. There are no perpetual care fees, or annual fees for upkeep. Lot owners are given a deed and written copy of the regulations of the cemetery set forth by the board of directors. Also, registered lot owners are sent a post card in the Spring and in the Fall as a reminder of the decoration cleaning dates.
