Louisville Memorial Gardens is the final resting place for many of the families who lived in and around or trace their heritage to Shively, Kentucky. Many of the families buried here originated in Louisville's West End and moved into the area in the 1950s and 1960s or they moved from Louisville's collar counties finding employment in Louisville's manufacturing, distillery, tobacco, or skilled trades professions. There is a large number of descendants of German immigrants that settled in Shively, Kentucky buried in this cemetery.
