History

Mausoleum at Roselawn Funeral Home & Memorial GardensBrothers Edwin and Dayton Phillips created Roselawn Memorial Gardens to serve a growing population between Murfreesboro and Smyrna. In the 1950s, the City of Murfreesboro owned a cemetery within the city limits; several private families and churches owned cemeteries as well.

Just below their newly purchased land, Rutherford County’s legendary limestone rock proved a challenge for routine burial. Rather than rely on explosives to loosen the soil, the brothers undertook an impressive ground rock removal project, eliminating the need for explosives to make room for 6 feet of topsoil.

They built a modest-size mausoleum to gauge their neighbors’ receptiveness to above-ground burial. The community liked it, and the mausoleum was soon expanded to include an informal chapel for committal services.

In May 2014, Roselawn Memorial Gardens completed the vision of Edwin and Dayton by building a funeral home on the cemetery grounds. Roselawn Funeral Home comfortably accommodates the families of Rutherford County and Middle Tennessee. Several cemetery gardens are within walking distance of the funeral home, allowing for a horse-drawn carriage processional, bicycle escorts for a funeral coach or ceremonial peace walks to a final resting place.

"We were lost and devastated when my Dad passed away. We were concerned about trying to plan a funeral, while still trying to comprehend he was gone. The entire team at Roselawn was so attentive, caring, patient and genuine. They spent a lot of time with us to explain the process of planning, as well as pricing options. They were thorough and flexib

le. They did exactly what they said they would, quicker than anticipated. We received several comments from family and friends about how beautiful the building, grounds and services were. The funeral process was effortless for us, and I cannot say enough about how thankful we are to them for making the process so easy at a very difficult time. My Dad deserved an amazing service, and I am confident he would be thankful to Roselawn for helping us."
