727 Harvard Ave, Swarthmore, PA 19081
The Swarthmore Presbyterian Church Memorial Garden was created for rest,
meditation, prayer, and the interment of cremated remains of active and
former members, as well as clergy who have been active in the congregation.
Spouses and children of eligible persons may also be interred.
The Memorial Garden is a beautiful spot designed as a special resting place for the mortal remains of those whose spirit has been received into God's eternal care. Like the churchyard of former years, the Memorial Garden in our time provides comfort to the bereaved by keeping the memory of loved ones alive in the place where they worshipped God, and experienced the joy of shared life in the community of faith.
The Memorial Garden is located next to the church, adjacent to the Church Garden behind the ABC House.
Remains may be poured or scattered in the Memorial Garden, or interred in a bio-degradable container. While interment locations may be chosen by the family, they will not be recorded or marked.
In keeping with the spirit of the Memorial Garden, all markers will be brass plaques of the same design, placed on the memorial wall of names. Each marker will include name and years of birth and death. No titles will be included.
For application or additional information, please contact the church's business office at 610-543-4712 which is responsible for processing applications and fees. The Memorial Garden Application may also be viewed and printed from the member login section of this website. The church will arrange for opening the interment site as well as ordering and installing the marker.
"It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed."
