Garden of Memories
Cemetery and Mausoleum
Garden of Memories
Garden of Memories Cemetery is a perpetual care cemetery that encompasses a setting on
the softly rolling grounds of the property. Each garden has a theme and many have special features related
to that theme. Both traditional upright monument gardens and a memorial garden are offered. The
cemetery also plans to offer aboveground interment in a community mausoleum or a private estate mausoleum.
In addition to traditional burial, Garden of Memories offers many cremation alternatives for those who
have selected cremation. These include placement of cremated remains in future columbarium, and interment
in an urn space, which also includes a plaque for memorializing the deceased. There is easy access
to all sections of the cemetery, with paved streets throughout. Vaults are required in each garden.
Private family mausoleums are currently available in a variety of styles and sizes to
accommodate multiple family members. A community mausoleum will be built in the near future to provide
for those who wish above-ground interment.
Enclosed by a brick wall, the Scattering Garden provides shelter for those who prefer
a non-traditional burial plot for cremains. These cremation plots are marked with a flat marker. Individuals
who wish to use a traditional burial plot are also given that option with urn vaults and monuments. A
columbarium is planned for the future interment of cremains.
The Veterans Program
Because of the service of our area Veterans, we are proud to offer our Veterans Program. At no charge to the
veteran, Garden of Memories will provide a complementary space in our Veterans Garden when the funeral is conducted
through Coleman Funeral Home. We will also allow the spouse of a veteran a double depth interment at no charge
for the grave space.
A portion of the purchase price of each grave is contributed to a perpetual care fund.
Income from these funds is used to provide regular care and maintenance at the cemetery. Regular care
and maintenance activities can include: cutting grass, re-grading of graves, planting and caring for trees,
maintenance of water supply systems, roads, drainage, etc. The minimum amount to be contributed to the
endowment care fund is governed by laws of Mississippi. Income from the fund can only be spent on care
and maintenance of the cemetery -- the capital is not touched.
