Personalized funeral services
Our mission at Ridout's Gardendale Chapel is to help families create personalized funerals and memorials. This approach keeps us open to traditional religious rites as well as contemporary gatherings that deeply reflect a person's life. That means that whether you want a basic cremation with cremated remains scattered in a personally meaningful place, a funeral at the funeral home with cemetery burial nearby, or a modern celebration of life with live music and a send-off that expresses the passions of yourself or your loved one, we are happy to deliver. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.
We Honor Veterans
At Ridout's Gardendale Chapel, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, the funeral home has a staff who is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran's memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.
Additionally, through Land of Lincoln Honor Flight, we assist veterans with trips to Washington, D.C., to visit memorials honoring their service and sacrifice.
