About

Parkway Funeral Home and Parkway Memorial Cemetery have provided compassionate care to people in the Jackson, Mississippi, area since 1923. Formerly Wright & Ferguson Funeral Home/Parkway Memorial Cemetery, our reputation for quality funeral, cremation and cemetery services spans almost 100 years. Though times have changed, our commitment to Jackson has never wavered.

All of our services are designed to help families through one of the more personal and challenging stages of life. We understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and the funeral home team is committed to guiding you through the process of planning a funeral or memorial that celebrates life.

A funeral home for all faiths

Mausoleum at Parkway Funeral HomeA non-denominational funeral home and cemetery, Parkway Funeral Home and Parkway Memorial Cemetery serve a range of religions and cultures. The funeral home team works with families to incorporate their traditions and infuse their ideas into each funeral or memorial they design.

Parkway Funeral Home has 4 funeral chapels. Magnolia, Evergreen and Dogwood are suited for visitations and smaller services. Each of these rooms can accommodate groups up to 50 people comfortably. We can combine these rooms to suit a larger group if needed. For much larger funeral services and large catered events, Celebration of Life Hall seats approximately 185 guests.

Chapel at Parkway Funeral HomeRooms are tastefully but simply decorated. Families are encouraged to personalize the spaces with photos, mementos or themed decor. We believe that every funeral service should be as unique as the individual being celebrated. We can help you incorporate favorite songs, funny videos, photo slideshows, a color scheme or other meaningful items into a service.

Tell us a story, and we will take it from there.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements. If you wish, cremated remains can be placed at Parkway Memorial Cemetery.

Parkway Memorial Park cemetery

Water feature at Parkway Memorial CemeteryParkway Memorial Cemetery spans 25 acres of rolling green lawns, mature trees and a serene lake with a flowing fountain. A variety of wildlife lives here, including grass carp in the lake and whitetail deer on the grounds. It's a natural space where tranquility lets you remember good memories fondly.

Plethora of burial options

Parkway Memorial Cemetery offers numerous burial options, including in-ground interment with flat or upright monuments, a cremation garden, 2 community mausoleums and more. Burial options for families include private mausoleums and private burial estates.

Mausoleums and committal services

If you'd like to hold a service on the cemetery grounds, we conduct committal services at both Trinity Mausoleum and Monticello Mausoleum. Monticello is an open-air mausoleum. Trinity is an enclosed, air-conditioned mausoleum that holds up to 75 people.

"THE single most valuable aspect of our experience was Sydney Risher. Each of my family members remarked how much they appreciated his care and compassion. He readily identified the concerns of each family member and as he presented our options he addressed each family member with eye contact as he touched on the areas of their concern. When he was with us he made us feel as though no one else and nothing else in the world was more important that our immediate family. Of course, at that time no one else and nothing else in the world was more important than our family."
