Families are reunited
Memories are made tangible
… and love is undisguised.

This is a Cemetery …
Our Community accords respect,
Families bestow reverence,
Historians seek information, and
Our Heritage is thereby enriched.

Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are cast in stone and bronze to pay warm tribute to accomplishments, and to the LIFE – not the death – of a loved one.

The Memorials here are a sustaining source of comfort to the Living.

ABOUT US

Originally known as “Stockyard Creek Cemetery” – after the town of same name – it became Foster Cemetery later to coincide with the renaming of the town.

For over 100 years, all interments at Foster were burials! These occurred according to religious denomination; with each local church nominating a member who would represent their parishioners on the Cemetery Trust; & be responsible for that area in our earliest burial grounds – now referred to as our Monumental section.
