A funeral home for all faiths
A 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.
Rooms 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.
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
Parkway 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.
Come for a tour
More than half of Parkway Memorial Cemetery is undeveloped, which means we'll be here serving greater Jackson for years to come. If you'd like a tour of the memorial park, let us know and we'll be happy to show you around.
Commitment to veterans
Parkway Funeral Home and Parkway Memorial Cemetery work closely with all branches of the U.S. armed services to host events during the year and perform military funeral services with honors, including funerals for homeless veterans. Parkway Memorial Cemetery honors veterans with a large Memorial Day program that includes placing flags on all our veterans' graves.
