Greenwood Cemetery is located at the corner of Auburn & Main Streets, Rockford, Illinois. It was established in 1845. Since Greenwood is still an active cemetery, it has many older monuments and newer ones interspersed. Greenwood Cemetery is the oldest and largest cemetery in Rockford. Many of Rockford’s earliest influential leaders are buried in Greenwood Cemetery. There are nearly 25,000 burials in Greenwood and room for an additional 25,000 over 65 acres of land.


The Greenwood Cemetery office/garage will be under construction starting July 17, 2017 thru the end of September 2017. Due to the unknown conditions during construction, all cemetery needs will be handled by appointment only. Please call 815-962-7522 for assistance.
