About

Caballero Rivero Southern Memorial Park has served Miami and surrounding communities for almost 100 years. Established in 1941, our picturesque 64-acre cemetery is the final resting spot of many pioneer families of North Miami and is 1 of the few cemeteries in the State of Florida that has a memorial garden dedicated to members of the Jewish faith.

Large clusters of trees create plenty of shade and quiet areas for reflection. Unique brick statues with religious themes add to the serene atmosphere of the cemetery. With its park-like setting, Caballero Rivero Southern Memorial Park is a dignified and beautiful final resting spot.

We welcome diversity

Our professional and experienced team members are knowledgeable on many different burial customs and will work with you to incorporate your family’s traditions.

Founded on the belief that every veteran deserves a dignified and honorable burial, the Homeless Veterans Burial Program is a cooperative effort with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, local medical examiners, coroners, veterans advocates and veterans organizations. Through the program, homeless and indigent veterans who have no family to claim them are identified and given proper military burials.

The cemetery includes a dedicated veterans section.

We care about Miami

Signage at Caballero Rivero SouthernThe Miami community is important to us. At Caballero Rivero Southern Memorial Park, we host numerous annual events to bring the community together, including on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

To support our community, we host a back-to-school event each August, partnering with area fire departments, to give away hundreds of bags of school supplies and raffle off book bags and other prizes for our school children.
