Funeral Service & Cemetery



Lives are commemorated – deaths are recorded – families are reunited. Memories are made tangible – and love is undisguised. Cypress Lawn's two great strengths - beauty and reliability - generated a third, most important asset: the interconnection between the memorial park and the people of the San Francisco Bay Area. A dynamic relationship developed. Pioneers and individualists, and groups of immigrants from around the globe, brought their heritage and their energies directly and indirectly to the memorial park. A special community began to take form. The result was that, in addition to being an enormous indoor and outdoor art gallery, the park became a rich repository of Northern California history - and participated in the making of that history as well. Cypress Lawn's staff today, enriched by a variety of cultural backgrounds, is a living demonstration of social changes that took place over the course of time. But Cypress Lawn has always been a group effort. Hamden Noble did not guide the new memorial park through its early years by himself. He was surrounded and supported by a dedicated board of directors and board of trustees. These boards represented a high level of sophistication, accomplishment, and influence.
