About

With the sandy shoreline of Flagler Beach only a short drive away, Craig Flagler Palms Funeral Home sits on the grounds of Flagler Memorial Gardens. The funeral home provides funeral and cremation memorials that are unique and personalized. The cemetery offers a range of burial options on pretty, peaceful grounds. It is our deepest honor to work together to help you celebrate the life of someone you loved.

Let’s celebrate life

Lobby at Craig Flagler Palms Funeral HomeWhether you’re visiting for the first time or have lived here all your life, you’ll notice that Flagler Beach is a warm and charming town characterized by a laid-back vibe. It’s a wonderful place to live! We are lucky that the people in our community come from all walks of life. Craig Flagler Palms Funeral Home serves families of all cultures, religions and backgrounds. Our team is familiar with many different funeral traditions and customs and speaks English and Spanish.

Every person is unique and deserves a unique celebration. Our staff specializes in one-of-a-kind memorials that celebrate a person’s passions and personality. Think dove releases, cupcakes, golf balls, convertibles, live music, floral bouquets and dance performances. There are thousands of ways to pay tribute to a special someone. The only limit to what we can do is the imagination.

Modern funeral chapels

Chapel at Craig Flagler Palms Funeral HomeWant a small service with close family members and friends? We have appropriate spaces for that. Or would you prefer to have a large, over-the-top celebration? We can arrange for that too. In fact, with 3 flexible chapels, our versatile funeral home can handle services of almost any type or size.

The largest chapel holds more than 100 but can easily be divided into smaller sections for intimate services. The North Chapel holds approximately 100 people, with a small area for family-only services. It can be used for a catered reception—and you can let us arrange the food and drinks. The smaller South Chapel holds about 65.

All of our chapels have comfortable, overstuffed furniture and simple decor, which makes them easy to customize with photos, mementos and personally meaningful items. Our team encourages personalization and can design a truly special service for your loved one.

On-site crematorium

More and more Floridians families are choosing cremation. In 2011, we built a crematorium at Craig Flagler Palms. An on-site crematorium means your loved one never leaves our care. Should your cultural or religious tradition call for a cremation viewing, we are able to accommodate those requests. If you wish, cremated remains can be buried or inurned at Craig Flagler Memorial Gardens. 

Flagler Memorial Gardens cemetery

Mausoleum at Craig Flagler Palms Funeral HomeThe 13-acre Flagler Memorial Gardens is one of the older cemeteries in Flagler County and the only perpetual care cemetery in the area. With an array of burial choices and a road made of bricks from the original Route 100, the memorial park is a lovely and historic final resting spot.

A range of burial options

From traditional ground burial to placement in a cremation niche, there are many options at Flagler Memorial Gardens. All of our ground plots are for single internment, with the exception of Garden of Love, which has double-depth (2-person) plots. Upright monuments are allowed in some sections of the cemetery; others allow only flat bronze markers.

If you choose above-ground burial, several mausoleums offer single crypts, tandem (2-person) crypts and side-by-side crypts. Mausoleum crypts have light pink granite fronts with bronze plates for names and vases for flowers. If you prefer an above-ground burial option that’s more personalized and private, you can work with one of our designers to build a private family or individual mausoleum.

Two of our community mausoleums have cremation niches. All of the niches are companion niches, which means they are big enough for 2 urns. In addition to niches, we have cremation memorial benches (with space for up to 3 urns) throughout the cemetery grounds, columbaria and a cremation scattering garden.

Sections for religious groups and others

Landscaping at Craig Flagler Palms Cemetery Although Flagler Memorial Gardens is a non-denominational cemetery, we have several sections dedicated to members of certain faiths. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Augustine has blessed the cemetery, and there is a section for Catholics called Sacred Heart. Garden of Peace was developed with the Temple Beth Shalom but is open to any member of the Jewish faith.

Garden of Valor and Garden of Freedom are reserved for war veterans and other members of the U.S. armed forces.

A place for committal services

Committal services are often held in 1 of the 4 mausoleums on the cemetery property. The original mausoleum, the Memory Mausoleum, and the 3 newer mausoleums (the Mausoleums of the Angels) have covered breezeways that can be set with chairs. The open areas within the mausoleums can also be used for committal services.

Prepared for the future

The cemetery may be small, but it stands ready to serve many more generations of Flagler County families. As a perpetual care cemetery, Flagler Memorial Gardens will be well maintained forever. We invite you to tour our lovely little cemetery on your own or call us for a guided tour.

History of Flagler Memorial Gardens

Mausoleum at Flagler Memorial GardensWhen you walk into Flagler Memorial Gardens you are stepping into history. Formerly known as Hope Cemetery, it was established 1923 and is the final resting place of several Flagler County pioneers. The cemetery was later renamed to its current name, Flagler Memorial Gardens.

Follow the old brick road

The red bricks that line the entrance of the cemetery were once part of the Old Brick Road, a 66-mile project completed in 1916 by St. Johns County. The road was part of the original Dixie Highway, which stretched from Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, to Miami Beach, Florida. In the 20s and 30s, the road fell into disrepair as the new Dixie Highway (aka US-1) was built. Eventually, the brick road was torn up and paved over. The bricks themselves were used to build schools, homes, fireplaces and patios.

Today, we are honored to preserve this small—but important—piece of Florida history on our cemetery grounds.

Events for the Flagler community

Craig Flagler Palms Funeral Home hosts several events during the year. The All Souls Day service is produced with the local Catholic church. On the first Sunday of December, we open our doors to the community for a candlelight holiday memorial. We work with non-denominational clergy to host about 500 people and decorate a holiday tree with ornaments families have given us to honor their loved ones.
