Valhalla Memory Gardens
Since 1972, when Valhalla Memory Gardens was founded on a beautiful north Alabama hillside, our cemetery team has taken pride in responding to each family's needs. Personal attention and genuine care remain the most important of all the services we provide.
Valhalla Memory Gardens represents a place of serene beauty and thoughtful remembrance. The cemetery's natural beauty evokes the wonder of the never-ending cycle of seasons.
Cemetery and mausoleum amenities
Valhalla Memory Gardens offers traditional ground burial, lawn crypts, mausoleum entombment as well as options for those who choose cremation. We house 9 gardens designed for traditional ground burial, with several distinguished by a life-sized sculpture of a biblical subject. These works of art, carved from white Italian Carrara marble, were designed by internationally renowned artist Dominic Zappia.
Our grounds also offer above-ground mausoleum entombment, and our mausoleums are separated by open pavilions used for committal services and meditation. The Chapel of Devotion, made of native stone and completed in 1974, was Huntsville's first community mausoleum. In addition, these mausoleums also include several marble-faced columbaria and niches for urns containing cremated remains. In the Chapel of Love, niches with glass facings reveal the elegance of bronze urns.
Religious and veteran burial properties
The Garden of Crosses features over 1,000 lawn burials, a burial option favored by many families because it combines the best aspects of ground interment and above-ground entombment.
Valhalla Memory Gardens solemnly honors those who have served our country by offering over 1,000 lawn burials in the Valor Garden reserved for veterans. These include double-depth and side-by-side burials, ensuring that military families remain close to those who meant so much.

The founders of Valhalla Funeral Home and Valhalla Memory Gardens, Ralph and Ruby Stubblefield, were tobacco farmers from Middle Tennessee. It all began in Huntsville, Alabama, in 1972 with 65 acres of undeveloped land. Ralph envisioned beautiful, calming cemetery gardens with rolling hills and mausoleums throughout—a place where neighbors and the surrounding communities could bury or entomb their loved ones in a peaceful garden-like setting.
The Stubblefields started the cemetery with the development of a single garden, the Chapel Garden. Due to the high operational costs associated with a new and upcoming cemetery, the sale of planned funerals and burials was essential to aid in the funding of this endeavor. To assist, the surrounding funeral homes and a local cemetery would honor plan-ahead arrangements made through Valhalla and provide accommodations for funeral services and burials, while Valhalla was under construction.
In the early 1970s, our first mausoleum, the Chapel of Devotion, opened in the Chapel Garden and an additional 2 mausoleums, buildings A and B, were erected in the upper southwest corner of the property.
As time passed, interest accrued from the sale of numerous funeral and burial trusts. This profit provided the Stubblefields with the means to have not only cemetery property options but a place for full funeral services as well, causing the vision of cemetery gardens to expand to the building of Valhalla Funeral Home in 1988.
Generations of trust in Greater Huntsville
The Stubblefields created an atmosphere where people served felt like family because they were treated with compassion. The Stubblefields also exceeded their vision by giving their families exceptional service and a place where they could have funerals and bury their loved ones without ever leaving the grounds. This unique concept not only set Valhalla Funeral Home and Valhalla Memory Gardens apart from most local funeral homes, but also gave the families peace of mind and a sense of great comfort.
Growing with our community
Valhalla Memory Gardens continued to grow and expand with the building of more mausoleums, the Chapel of Peace, the Chapel of Love, Chapel of Love Court and buildings C, D and E. Our specialized gardens included the Garden of Valor, the Masonic Garden and religious gardens such as Everlasting Life, Gethsemane, Good Shepherd, Last Supper, Crosses and Serenity. Later, they developed Faith Memorial Park located in Madison, Alabama.
A Huntsville tradition continues
The Stubblefields were blessed to see their vision realized. After years of hard work and much deserved rest, the Stubblefields decided to retire. In 2007, Ralph and Ruby died within 7 weeks of one another. Just as in life, working side-by-side, they were laid to rest in a side-by-side companion mausoleum entombment in the Chapel of Love.
