About Westside Memorial Gardens

Newly opened in 2009, Westside Cemetery offers a scenic park setting and other amenities.

Westside is located approximately 5 miles southwest of Grove Place Cemetery at the corner of Stryker and Chili-Scottsville Road, across from the Chili American Legion Post. The cemetery was officially opened and dedicated with a ceremony conducted by the Chili American Legion Post on Veteran’s Day 2008. Westside currently has 8 acres of developed and landscaped property available for the public, with another 18 acres reserved for future development. Either call or send an email to the Sales Manager for more information.

Westside Memorial Gardens is operated by Grove Place Cemetery Association which was founded by a group of local citizens in 1856 with a vision for the future. They desired to have a local cemetery for the burial of their loved ones in their day, as well as many years in the future.

The Association was incorporated as a non-profit corporation under the laws of New York State in the year it was founded. The cemetery is non-denominational, and continues to carry on the commitment made by the founders. Grove Place and Westside Cemeteries are operated by the Association, which is governed by a Board of Trustees, and in conformity with the Rules and Regulations of the State of New York, Department of State, Division of Cemeteries. Many families have chosen Westside Memorial Gardens as their final resting place; a living commentary on the care and constant maintenance of the cemetery.

Permanent Maintenance Coverage

When a lot is purchased in either cemetery, Permanent Maintenance coverage is included at a nominal fee which equates to approximately two dollars over 30 years. It provides for the perpetual care and maintenance of the cemetery long after the cemetery has reached capacity. While the Association remains the custodian of these funds, New York State Auditors visit regularly to assure that these funds are invested and maintained properly, in accordance with the regulations of the State of New York, Department of State, Division of Cemeteries.

Grove Place and Westside Cemeteries have computerized mapping to assist in the location of graves. Our sales staff will be pleased to provide you with detailed instructions in helping you find the grave of a loved one.
