Purchasing a Lot
We are pleased to announce that lots are available for purchase at the South Russell Village Cemetery. The Cemetery Office is located at Village Hall. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment to purchase a lot, please contact:
The Village opened the South Russell Village Cemetery in 2015. Current and former residents of the Village can be laid to rest in this bucolic setting.
The South Russell Village Cemetery is a municipally maintained cemetery. The hours of the cemetery are from 8am until dusk.
Full and cremation lots are available. No full grave space may contain more than two cremated remains, one cremated remains and one vault or one infant casket not to exceed 24” in length and one full burial. No cremation lot may contain more than two cremated remains.
The scattering garden is a place where loved ones can scatter cremated remains amongst a collection of trees, plants and flowers. The cemetery personnel maintains the garden for the benefit of all families and cemetery visitors.
During the scattering ceremony, the cremation ashes are poured evenly on loose soil and raked into the ground from the cremation urn. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Village personnel will make sure that adequate soil is placed over the spot.
The pavers in the middle of the scattering garden act as a memorialization and are made available whether or not the individual is scattered in the garden. Each paver will only list one name, date of birth and date of death.

Wreaths Across America
On behalf of the Evergreen Wreaths Committee, Sponsorship Coordinators for Wreaths Across America in Chagrin Falls, we want to thank YOU for your support of the Mission to Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom.
During this year’s National Wreaths Across America observance, more than two million dedicated volunteers placed more than 2.4 MILLION VETERANS’ WREATHS at 3,136 LOCATIONS across the country. At Evergreen Hill cemetery specifically, over 800 veterans’ wreaths were placed by volunteers, many of whom were children, participating for the very first time.
Thank you for your donations, thank you for volunteering to lay wreaths, thank you most of all for taking the time during this busy season to join us in letting veterans and military families know that their service and sacrifice is both seen and appreciated and that they are not alone in their loss.
Wishing all of you wellness and happiness in 2022,
The Evergreen Wreaths Committee:
Jim Brosius, Beth Finley, Karen Godenschwager, Erinn Grube, Cathy Hattenbach, Linda Henry, Jean Hood, Eric Malmquist, Larry Morrow, Matt Murphy, Kathy Rhode, Friday Tomko
