A lovely Lake Charles cemetery

Cemetery Grounds at Highland Memorial GardensThe well-manicured gardens, trees and flowers at Highland Memory Gardens set a tranquil mood. Distinctive burial options—from traditional in-ground burial to above-ground mausoleum entombment—offer a match for most every family tradition and personal preference.

Those who choose cremation may opt for the striking glass-front niches of our columbarium, an elegant space where future generations may return to reflect. Family estates offer a special way to preserve a family's heritage in one central location; hedged estates further enhance exclusivity.

Honoring those from Hurricane Audrey

Hurricane Audrey, one of the deadliest tropical cyclones in U.S. history, devastated Southwest Louisiana on June 27, 1957. The loss of life caused by Hurricane Audrey was truly overwhelming, with an estimated 400 to 500 deaths, nearly one-third of which were children.

To this day, more than 30 of those individuals remain unidentified, many of whom are interred at Highland Memory Gardens. The tranquil garden honoring those from Hurricane Audrey is bordered with crepe myrtles and marked with a statue and plaque, forever paying homage to their memory.
