as unique as you
We strive to work with families to make their visit to Lawnwood Memorial Park meaningful. We understand that each life represented by a memorial on our grounds is unique and we will make every effort to celebrate with you the life of your loved one in a way that is special to you and your family.
We offer a wide variety of options for the burial, entombment, or ennichement of your loved one in a peaceful, idealic, and park like surrounding. From traditional burial to the scattering of your loved one's cremated remains, Lawnwood leaves no detail unaddressed.
Cremation as a form of final disposition of a loved one is becoming more and more popular with some states already doing well over 50% of their total funeral work as cremation. While some may tell you that cremation is the more “cost effective” way of handling the death of a loved one, there are many aspects of cremation that do not serve the family well psychologically. Many families simply have their loved one cremated as a cost saving measure and do not have a memorial service or any form of gathering. When this happens a number of the vital functions of a funeral are not met.
When a family chooses to not have any form of service or gathering, they are sending a confusing message to the family and friends who also loved their loved one. They are in effect saying that “we have this all under control and we do not need your support.” IN many instances that is not the intended message and the family is left wondering where their support system is during this time. Having a memorial service, no matter how small or simple, provides an opportunity for friends and family to reflect back on a life well lived and share memories of the person who has died. This process of going back in time to remember the loved one, allows those in attendance to properly deal with the reality of the death and begin their new walk forward towards their new normal.
Lawnwood Memorial Park believes in the remembrance of those who have died, even if they are cremated. We have numerous options available for memorializing cremated human remains in a way that provides a place for the family to come and remember their loved one fondly. From niches to custom inurnment options and even scattering, Lawnwood’s cremation options are always intended to serve our families in ways that foster healthy grief and bereavement.
Our newest cremation garden is located within the newest section of the cemetery, Section K, The Garden of God’s Kingdom and consists of a central pergola, which can be used for services, and a number of different types of cremation memorialization options. These pictures show an artist’s rendering of the finished garden and the current state of development. For more information, please contact the Lawnwood Office at 770-787-8314.
Traditional and Mausoleum
Lawnwood Memorial Park offers well manicured, park like grounds among the rolling hills that make up our 64 acres. We have numerous sections, each with its own layout and unique design. Although Lawnwood was originally designed for flat bronze memorials only, our newest sections feature a mix of upright granite and flat bronze.
Our Memory Chapel Mausoleum has limited availability; however, there are crypts available for immediate sale. For more information, please contact the Lawnwood Office at 770-787-8314.
Lawnwood Memorial Park offers our Veterans and their spouse a beautiful and peaceful area for their final resting place. The area is adorned with a Veteran's Memorial as a salute to those who have served our country proudly. This area is designated for the Veteran and spouse only. We offer the Veteran his or her space at a cost of only the perpetual care fee.
NOT JUST FOR THE FUNERAL
Part of healthy grief is the continued remembrance of your loved one. From birthdays to holidays, Lawnwood encourages the families of those protected here to visit often and to take every opportunity to celebrate your loved one in death as you pass on their legacy to future generations.
We believe that our service to your family transcends the funeral service, and we make ourselves available to help your family with remembering your loved one in any way we can.
We also offer floral placement programs which allow you to pre-purchase and schedule floral placement on your loved one's grave site at various times throughout the year to insure their are always attractive floral arrangements adorning their place of rest. All of our floral arrangements are made with a patented, secure placement stem which is proven to protect your flowers in the event of heavy winds.
