Contemporary Jackson funeral home

Front exterior building at Lakewood Funeral HomeWith a blend of classic touches and contemporary amenities, Lakewood Funeral Home includes an interdenominational chapel, 3 visitation rooms, a lounge and a covered patio. The funeral home has more than 8,400 square feet of space with an additional 2,400 square feet of outdoor sheltered areas. We also offer a well-lit parking area.

The Tree of Life-themed window in our chapel measures 14 by 17 feet. This beautiful artwork was removed from the former funeral home location, repaired and placed in this chapel. Other smaller stained-glass windows from the former building were reused here as well.

"The lack of the graveside service was unacceptable. That is the closing of the funeral. And, even though we went anyway, it was a disorganized mess. I hope you bring this feature back."
