Mausoleum at Pinecrest Memorial ParkAt Pinecrest Memorial Park, we believe that every life is unique and that every memorial should be too. Our highly experienced and skilled grounds staff attends to every detail to ensure a meticulously maintained park. Pinecrest Memorial Park is a peaceful and serene space, offering many interment options, including traditional in-ground burial, lawn crypt entombment, mausoleum entombment and cremation memorialization.

Constructed of granite, concrete and reinforced steel, the Pinecrest Memorial Gardens Mausoleum has a charming foyer that was sculpted out of marble and is designed to hold floral arrangements. The cemetery grounds feature many lovely gardens as well, including the Garden of the Good Shepherd, the Garden of the Whispering Waters and the Garden of Love. We also offer private family and community mausoleums, plus several state-of-the-art cremation options.


Pinecrest Memorial Gardens was established in 1965. Nearly a decade later in 1974, McLaurin Funeral Home was built on the property. The following year in 1975, Jimmy D. McLaurin purchased Pinecrest Memorial Gardens and eventually changed the name to Pinecrest Memorial Park. After the purchase of the cemetery, McLaurin Funeral Home at Pinecrest Memorial Park became sister locations, giving families the convenience of taking care of all funeral and burial arrangements.

In 1982, construction began on the first addition to the beautiful Chapel Mausoleum. Since then, 3 total additions have been made to the mausoleum, allowing for over 650 crypts and niches, and thus, making it the largest mausoleum in Johnston County.

In 2011, Pinecrest Memorial Park saw demand for more mausoleum space and began construction on the Faith Mausoleum.
