Provo Cemeteries

Nelson Family Mortuary can provide services to those choosing funeral services, graveside services or burial in Provo City Cemetery or Eastlawn Cemetery.  Our staff works closely with the Staff of Provo City Cemetery and Eastlawn Cemetery to ensure your experience is as easy as possible during a difficult time.

Provo City Cemetery is a City owned and operated cemetery therefore subsidized by city taxes to help with operations.  

Eastlawn Cemetery is a privately owned and operated cemetery and is NOT subsidized by city taxes.  Eastlawn is in a beautiful location on the east hills of Provo with views of the Provo and Orem city valley and mountains above.  It is one of our favorite cemeteries in all of Utah.

Provo City Cemetery is located on State street in South Provo and was established in 1863.  This cemetery has beautiful trees and a remarkable history.   More information can be found on both Provo Cemetery and Eastlawn Cemetery below. 


Eastlawn Memorial Hills Cemetery  
4800 E Lawn Dr Provo UT 84604

Eastlawn Memorial Hills Cemetery was established in 1952 by Provo, Utah residents David Spencer Grow and his wife Arta Lind Grow. In the early 50’s, the Grows owned several parcels of beautiful foothill property in Provo. Mr. Grow was approached by a group of businessmen who were interested in obtaining some of his prime land in hopes of building an endowed care cemetery. As he considered their purchase proposal, Mr. Grow could see that this particular ground could indeed, provide an ideal location for a one-of-a-kind memorial park. He turned down the purchase offer and set to work creating what became know as Eastlawn Memorial Hills. In the beginning, Eastlawn was outside the city limits of Provo with only graveled roads connecting to its paved entrance lane. Over the years, the city has grown and incorporated Eastlawn into its boundaries, but because of Eastlawn’s unique hilltop location, it still maintains the serenity and peaceful environment that is so appreciated by our clients. Eastlawn was conceived as and became a Perpetual Care Cemetery which requires a care fund being in place that makes possible the present and future management and maintenance of the cemetery grounds. A small amount from each plot sale is directly deposited into the Eastlawn Care Fund which has grown over the years, assuring that Eastlawn will continue to be the beautiful memorial park it is today.
