Search Forest View Abbey Mausoleum:

Forest View Abbey was an old mausoleum which was located on North Main Street in Rockford on property adjacent to the Greenwood Cemetery and had separate ownership. The facility was sorely neglected, and kids were breaking into it, pulling the remains out of their crypts and scattering them on the floor. Finally the place was town down, and the remaining interments were reburied at Greenwood Cemetery along the eastern edge, and those graves that have markers are marked with the old brass plates which had been on the outside of the crypts. The cemetery office at Greenwood has all the records for Forest View Abbey.
