A welcoming Florida funeral home
From the moment we meet you at the door when you arrive to make arrangements to the conclusion of services and beyond, we listen to your needs. We take great pride in discovering what mattered most to your loved one and designing a service filled with surprise and delight. From a butterfly release to a seafood buffet, a motorcycle processional to a musical tribute, we can assist with virtually anything you can imagine.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens cemetery
Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens was established in 1960 to provide a beautiful final resting place for residents of Fort Lauderdale and surrounding areas. Lushly landscaped and populated by wildlife, it is one of the few cemeteries in South Florida that has a funeral home on the property.
The 30-acre cemetery property includes 2 chapels: the Life Well Celebrated® event center and the Shrine of Light Chapel inside the Pyramid.
Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens offers many burial options: above-ground crypts in the Pyramid or on the lawn, in-ground burials, mausoleum entombments, a cremation garden and more. Gardens of Living Christ, Garden of St. John and Garden of St. Matthew are often chosen by those of the Christian faith, but the cemetery has many beautiful acres of nondenominational gardens for all.
Constructed in 1975 as a cemetery office, chapel and space for above-ground burial, the Forest Lawn Pyramid is the largest pyramid outside of Egypt used for entombment of human remains. All 4 walls inside and outside the pyramid contain marble crypts. At the center of the 2-floor Pyramid lies a large, open chapel with a glass roof. The chapel inside the Pyramid is a popular location for committal services.

Honoring veterans and others

Every Veterans Day, we team up with a Boy Scouts troop and the U.S. Coast Guard to place flags on the graves of all the veterans at the cemetery. We also participate in the Homeless Veterans Burial Program. These are just 2 of the ways we recognize and honor the men and women who serve our country.
Forest Lawn Funeral Home and Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens also partner with the American Diabetes Association and regularly attend events for cancer awareness in Fort Lauderdale.
