Oak Park Cemetery

A History of Harmony


For over one hundred years, Claremont's Oak Park Cemetery has provided a serene and beautiful resting place for residents of the Pomona Valley. Oak Park's ten acres of shady tree groves and picturesque grounds offer a quaint and peaceful environment rarely found among modern cemeteries.

Our caring and professional staff are always sensitive to the individual needs of each family. We are committed to providing you with sound advice in a comfortable and compassionate manner when it becomes time for planning those important decisions.

Oak Park Cemetery considers everyone buried within its borders significant and the memory of their lives important. Many of the early residents of Claremont are resting at Oak Park. In 44 B.C. Cicero wrote, "The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the Living". He also said, "Memory is the treasure of all things and their guardian". Oak Park Cemetery is the guardian of the memories of all those resting within its borders. People like Eleanor Condit, L.N. Smith, William and Caroline Honnold, Thomas Barrows, Lee Pitzer and George G. Hitchcock just to name a few.

Oak Park is a publicly-owned cemetery, honoring interments to members of all faiths. The cemetery also offers special benefits for American Veterans. Visit Oak Park Cemetery any time Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., to meet with a cemetery representative who can answer your questions and show you around the grounds.  ATTENTION:  the office hours at Oak Park Cemetery will be 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. beginning July 1, 2010.  Oak Park Cemetery is located at 410 Sycamore Avenue. For information regarding Oak Park Cemetery, please contact the Sales and Services Coordinator at (909) 399-5487 or email rross@ci.claremont.ca.us. Walk-in customers are always welcome.

Always Welcome


Oak Park Cemetery is located in a quiet residential neighborhood of southeast Claremont, between Sycamore Avenue and Mills Avenue. The main entrance can be found at the east end of Oak Park Drive.

The cemetery grounds are always open to visitors, although vehicle traffic is excluded after sundown.

Flowers and Memorials


Unlike most cemeteries, Oak Park Cemetery allows for fresh cut flowers, potted plants, and permanent plantings that enhance the beauty of our cemetery grounds. Our groundskeepers will ensure that your offerings of affection are left in place as long as you maintain them and keep them attractive. Please click the link below for further information on Oak Park Cemetery's Gravesite Decoration Guidelines.

Memorial markers and monuments are a way of expressing a unique and lasting tribute to your loved ones. Oak Park Cemetery holds the distinction of being one of only a few cemeteries which still accepts a wide variety of memorial markers, including above ground monuments. Please ask our helpful staff about sizes and installation. They can be reached by calling (909) 399-5487.
