Burial Information
The City of Savannah Department of Cemeteries maintains five existing cemeteries which are owned and operated by the City of Savannah: 
  • Colonial Park
  • Laurel Grove North
  • Laurel Grove South
  • Bonaventure
  • Greenwich

Each cemetery has a unique character and is historically significant to the City of Savannah.

The department has evolved into a professional provider of high quality cemetery services. Existing services continue to evolve to meet the changing needs of death-care consumers while providing multiple and affordable alternatives for final disposition. In 2000, a professional cemetery services program was created to assist cemetery customers in purchasing interment rights and planning interment services. A full-time cemetery services coordinator is available to meet with families in a comfortable setting and to escort them to cemetery sites. Interment services planned in the municipal cemeteries will be coordinated with any funeral directors and/or monument companies involved. The department strives to provide timely, reliable information and support to customers when making death-care decisions.

The City offers cemetery sites in Bonaventure and Greenwich Cemeteries at the most reasonable prices in the county. Choices include prime water-front cemetery space, family cemetery lots, economical burial spaces, cremation spaces, and an attractive columbarium (or a mausoleum for cremated remains). Perpetual care is included in the fee for interment rights.

The main office of the Department of Cemeteries is located in Bonaventure Cemetery and a satellite office is located in Laurel Grove North. These offices are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Appointments are appreciated but not required.
