About Us

It’s likely no other organization can claim a longer history of service to the greater Detroit community than Mt. Elliott Cemetery Association. In fact, since 1841 Mt. Elliott has held a unique position in southeast Michigan—we have been entrusted to help memorialize and celebrate the lives of thousands of our fellow Christians in a place of tranquil beauty. We are steadfast in this commitment, which is increasingly important in a time when so many extended families are spread far and wide.

Mt. Elliott Cemetery Association is honored to be an important part of the community and proud that our properties are nationally recognized for the careful stewardship of our families’ most cherished memories. Each of the properties is distinctive in its own right. Mt. Elliott and Mt. Olivet cemeteries are historically important.

Resurrection, All Saints and Guardian Angel cemeteries are modern with exceptional buildings and estate-like settings. And our newest development, The Preserve at All Saints, was developed exclusively for green, or natural, burials.

We invite you to take a virtual tour of each of these sacred places by clicking on the link found on each cemetery’s page.


A Fascinating Look at Our History – Michigan author and genealogist Cecile Wendt Jensen has written two books, Detroit’s Mount Elliott Cemetery and Detroit’s Mount Olivet Cemetery. Published by Arcadia Press, these two books recount a brief history of our two oldest cemeteries and the diverse waves of immigrant communities they served during the 19th and 20th centuries. To purchase a copy of either book, call or visit any of our cemetery offices.
