To express our appreciation for your service to our country, Woodvale Union Cemetery, owned and operated jointly by the Cities of Middleburg Hts. and Berea, located in Middleburg Heights on Fowles Rd., between Big Creek Parkway and Engle Rd., has designated a limited number of graves available for Veterans and their spouse in an area designated for Veterans Only.
Veterans, residents or non – residents, will receive a grave and opening and closing at no charge, and they will be able to mark their grave with a marker from the Veterans Administration Office (there will be a setting fee for placement of the marker).
Spouses can be buried in the same grave as a double deep full burial or cremation burial. They also can be interred in a grave next to their spouse. Appropriate fees will apply depending on burial option chosen.
Please call the Cemetery Office 440-826-3455 between the hours of 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Friday or Saturday 8:00 A.M. to Noon and ask for Veterans Package details.
Woodvale Union Cemetery is a non – denominational cemetery serving families of all communities for over 160 years.
The Woodvale Union Cemetery Veterans Memorial will be a lasting tribute to all who have served in the United States Armed Forces. The project is a joint effort of the Cities of Berea and Middleburg Heights. The memorial will honor all veterans, living or deceased, who had actively served in the U.S. Armed Forces and have received an honorable discharge.
The memorial will include three granite columns of which the center column will commemorate each branch of the armed forces. The veteran's names will be inscribed on the side columns in phases. Deadline for the first phase will be September 30, 2015. Those names will be inscribed on the columns of the memorial for all to see and honor on the dedication ceremony of the memorial. Those names collected after September 30, 2015 will be added to the monument the following year and recognized at the next Veterans Day program.
