All Saints Episcopal Church

​Saugatuck, Michigan

All Saints' Memorial Garden


All Saints' Memorial Garden provides a place for the interment of ashes after cremation. It is a secluded Churchyard, bordered and enhanced by natural plantings appropriate to the historic architecture of the Church. 


The Memorial Garden is a modern conception of the ancient Churchyard where ashes of Episcopalians, and members of their families and friends may be interred close by the altar of God and close to the Church family. Those whose ashes are buried here will be remembered at the  altar on All Saints Day.


In Anglicican parishes all across the Untied Kingdom, it is traditional to find a gateway at the entrance to the church yard or parish cemetery. Our Lych-Gate was added to the Memorial Garden in June of 2013. The gate was given by Judy Coffield in memory of her late brother, Herb Bills.
