Resurrection Cemetery in Clinton Township, is considered by many to be the finest cemetery in Michigan. With nearly 300 acres, Resurrection is also one of the state’s largest.
Resurrection Cemetery has been featured in local and national media for its careful development, for its commitment to providing a wide variety of choices for individual and family memorials, and for the community programs and events we host. We serve all Christian faiths.
Interment options at Resurrection include traditional ground burial, as well as a variety of mausoleums that are located throughout the property for both crypt and cremation interment. The Prince of Peace Cremation Garden opened in 20
17, surrounding the Prince of Peace Crematorium with a wide range of cremation memorials, cremation benches and niche options for families. In 2022, the Mausoleum of the Saints Crem
ation Garden opened with more than 1,750 niches for those who wish to be cremated.
There are a number of enclosed, climate-controlled mausoleums that provide exceptional comfort for visiting family members while other mausoleums feat
ure covered walkways and integrate open courtyards and gardens to create a naturally beautiful environment. The new Garden of the Ascension Mausoleum, opening in 2013, is one such “outdoor” mausoleum. Private family mausoleums are also available.
Another remarkable feature of Resurrection Cemetery is the specially commissioned artwork that can be found throughout the grounds and mausoleums. These include heroic-sized, bronze Stations of the Cross sculptures in section 21, and monumental bronze castings of religious figures found in some mausoleums. We hope your visit to the Resurrection will i
nclude a look at these impressive works.
Resurrection Cemetery invites the entire community to a variety of events we host throughout the year such as Veterans Day and Memorial Day services, a Christmas Remembrance event, a touching Children’s Remembrance service, planning seminars and occasional exhibitions such as the traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
