About Highland Memorial Park

Highland Memorial Park is a 70-acre cemetery located in the city of New Berlin.

In 2023 we celebrated our 95th anniversary. The cemetery has been owned by the Porter family for the past 75 years.

Our goal at Highland Memorial Park is to serve our customers with a friendly attitude and to give them the best service possible. It’s important to us to make the experience of burying a loved one as easy as possible.

We are committed to providing services and maintaining our grounds to the highest standard, ensuring the most beautiful park possible for loved ones to bury their family members.



Highland Memorial Park was started in 1928 by a group of people from West Allis. In 1947, E. Glen Porter, Sr. joined the company and in 1951 Mr. Porter, Sr. and his wife Charlotte Porter purchased the cemetery. Dr. E. Glen Porter and his wife Kay F. Porter joined the company in 1964. E. Glen Porter III joined in 1984 and his wife Phyllis A. Porter joined in 1997. The Porter family continues to own and manage Highland Memorial Park. Highland Memorial Park has grown to become one of the busiest cemeteries in Wisconsin. We perform about 600 burials per year at the present time.

In 2023, Highland Memorial Park marked 95 years serving the families of southeastern Wisconsin.

Highland Memorial Park was begun as a family business, which continues to this day. We are one of the few family owned and operated cemeteries in Wisconsin. Because of this unique status, we are able to give greater personal attention to our families, as well as to the dedicated people that work here. It is our goal to make Highland Memorial Park a beautiful and pleasant place to visit. We welcome your suggestions on how we can improve toward that goal.
