Memories. They live forever. St. Charles County’s Finest Cemetery
The people we love live in our hearts forever. That’s why it’s important to have a special place to remember them. For families who choose traditional burial, and for those who choose cremation, Baue’s cemetery, St. Charles Memorial Gardens offers many beautiful ways to memorialize and honor life.
Our lovely cemetery, which celebrated 50 years in 2011, contains lakeside gardens, areas with religious themes, special scattering gardens for returning cremated remains to nature, columbarium niches, urn gardens, mausoleums, the Garden of Little Angels for infants, and the Veterans Field of Honor, a special reserved area to provide honorably discharged veterans free cemetery space.
Garden of the Pines
Garden of the Pines in the Northeast section of the cemetery opened August 1, 2012.
The Garden of Tranquility
On the Northern side of the lake, The Garden of Tranquility includes Unique Cremation Gardens and Private Upright Estates. Enjoy our walking path and floral gardens in this serene setting that honors loved ones with one of our many types of monuments, benches, and cremation options. Our Tranquility Mausoleum located in the Garden of Tranquility is now open.
Free Spaces for Veterans
For over 50 years, St. Charles Memorial Gardens has been honoring Veterans with Free Interment Spaces. We believe in supporting our area veterans and paying tribute to their service to our Country. Veterans spaces will be available in the Garden of the Pines after August 1, 2012
Many more options are available at St. Charles Memorial Gardens – we invite you to come speak with us to learn more about your options. Our cemetery offices are conveniently located inside the lower level of the Baue Funeral & Memorial Center.
St. Charles Memorial Gardens encourages the use of floral tributes. The beauty and continuity of the cemetery depends on the cooperative efforts of all families who have loved ones entrusted in our care.
