Louisville Memorial Gardens
Also known as:  Louisville Memorial Gardens West, Louisville Memorial Park

Louisville Memorial Gardens was originally founded as Louisville Memorial Park. The name was legally changed in the 1950's to Louisville Memorial Gardens.

There are over 34,000 people currently buried in this cemetery. It opened in 1920.

This is a fairly large cemetery with 18 sections and four mausoleums. To request a photograph of a grave, you'll need to obtain and enter in the plot field, a specific location so the volunteer taking the photograph can find the grave. You can find an online directory on the cemetery's website with burial location information for about 20,000 burial records.

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.

To obtain burial location information for the remaining 14,000 graves that are not listed on the cemetery's directory on its website, you will need to call the cemetery office at the phone number listed above and they will supply the burial location to you over the phone.
