About Us

Woodvale Union Cemetery is a historic, union cemetery owned and operated jointly by the cities of Middleburg Heights and Berea in Ohio. Located at the corner of Engle and Fowles Road and bordered by the Big Creek Parkway in the city of Middleburg Heights.  Thirty-five (35) of the fifty (50) acres are developed and offer a variety of site locations to choose from throughout the cemetery.

Woodvale Union Cemetery is dedicated to providing families with alternative burial options in addition to the traditional in-ground full or cremation burials. 

We are here to offer guidance and share our knowledge to assist families in making the right decision for their loved ones while honoring the wishes and dignity of the deceased.
