Cremation Burial Funeral
Starting in the late 1800's Fairlawn is the oldest cemetery in Stillwater. Within an area of forty acres of beautiful land lies over 11,000 interments. In the older sections you will find the final resting places of pioneers who founded and helped build the early town of Stillwater. Many streets and landmarks are named after these early pioneers and leaders. Throughtout Fairlawn are many educators and athletic coaches of Oklahoma State University. It is our honor to provide a wonderful place for loved ones in their final rest. With the inclusion of the Angels Garden, Tiny Angels Garden, and the Veterans Memorial, Fairlawn Cemetery offers a great setting for anyone who visits.This cemetery is not owned by the City of Stillwater but by the families of the loved ones who rest here. Fairlawn is a non-profit association governed by an elected board of directors. It is the many thanks to the men and women of this board who have helped maintain and developed this cemetery, over many years, to what it is today.
Grave Headstone Service
Here at Fairlawn we have a full office with public restrooms for both men and women. Our doors are always open to all during business hours.
