Our Chico Cemetery

For over 160 years, Chico Cemetery has served the local community and offered families a place to lay their loved ones to rest. We know how important it is for families in our community to have a beautiful place to visit and remember their loved ones. Since we first opened our gates to the Chico, California community in 1852, we have helped countless families find peace and create beautiful, lasting memorial sites. We are honored and humbled that families continue to trust us with the creation and maintenance of their final resting place.

Permanent Memorialization Services in Chico

At Chico Cemetery, we have 43.93 acres of wonderfully maintained historic monuments and features. When you enter Chico Cemetery, you experience history. We believe in honoring our past while still meeting families where they are today. 

Today, we have expanded our options to meet the needs of our growing Chico community. We offer traditional burial, cremation burial, mausoleum and cremation niches, and more. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we have an option that fits your unique needs. We recently designed and erected The Garden of Reflection, a new cremation garden. Here, families can enjoy the shade of the trees and listen to a flowing water fountain and relaxing music.

Families Choosing Cremation in Chico

If you choose cremation, there is still a place for you at Chico Cemetery. Permanent Memorialization options allow your family to visit you and your loved ones for generations. Today, many families are maintaining traditions and connecting with those they love by creating a lasting memorial site. Family estates have become a popular option where families can be placed together. Some of the cremation memorialization options available to you at Chico Cemetery are: 

  • Placement in a private family estate
  • Placement in a niche in a community columbarium or mausoleum
  • Above ground placement in the fountain niches or a cremation bench
  • Ground burial of the cremated remains or in an upright monument
  • Scattering at the cemetery with or without memorialization

If you already have your loved one’s cremation remains home with you, it’s not too late to opt for a permanent memorialization option in Chico. Call us at ​(530) 214-0088 and our Family Service Counselors can walk you through your options and help you make the best decision for you and your family.
