Williamsburg Memorial Park was established in 1962 and built on the historic plantation of Benjamin Stoddert Ewell, the 16th president of the College of William & Mary. We’re located just 15 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg on 41 acres of beautifully manicured property, surrounded by a natural forest.
Our park features a traditional English design that’s reminiscent of the colonial gardens that once adorned the grand estates of the 18th century. Upon arrival, a long winding driveway gently guides you from our discreet, wooded entranceway to a lush green open space featuring stately trees, manicured shrubs, and a bouquet of seasonal colors.
Unlike other cemeteries in Richmond, Norfolk, and Newport News, Williamsburg Memorial Park is not owned by a large corporation. Instead, we are a nonprofit, community cemetery operated by a small staff of dedicated professionals. As such, we all get to wear a lot of hats, but that’s actually a good thing. It means that no matter who you speak with, you’ll get the answers you need—fast.
Our lower overhead also means that we’re consistently one of the most affordable cemeteries in the area. Contact us today to find out why thousands of families have entrusted us with their loved one’s final resting place.
