Our comforting funeral home
When you step into Centuries Memorial Funeral Home, we want you to feel at home. Our large visitation room may remind you of your own living room. It accommodates up to 100 guests and has vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, contemporary furniture and flat-screen TVs for video memorials. It also has bookshelves for displaying photographs, keepsakes and memorabilia.
The funeral home also has a smaller, more intimate visitation room and a multipurpose room for catered events. The spacious chapel seats 190 people and has a comforting, peaceful ambiance.
Personalized funeral services
There are thousands of ways to celebrate a person’s life, and at Centuries Memorial Funeral Home, we strive to assist you in creating a unique and personalized tribute that reflects your loved one’s passions and personality. Our professional and experienced team has organized countless funeral and memorial services. This funeral home team really listens carefully to all of your wants and needs.
Hunting enthusiast? We’ll display the gear. Connoisseur of Louisiana cuisine? Our catering service is happy to whip up étouffée and jambalaya or meat pies. Share your stories and we'll design something truly wonderful.
An interactive way to memorialize a loved one
In 2016, we were among the first Dignity Memorial® providers to test an interactive remembrance video technology called Remember When®. This service allows family members and friends to share photographs and comments about a loved one in real time.
During a visitation, guests get a unique link where they can upload photographs and write comments. Pictures and notes are instantly displayed on a screen during the service. Even guests who are not able to attend the service can share their favorite memories.
Afterward, we turn the display of photos and memories into a printed and bound book to be treasured forever.
Your trusted provider
Centrally located in the Southern Hills neighborhood of Shreveport, Centuries Memorial Funeral Home sits at the intersection of Mansfield Road and LA 3132. In addition to Shreveport, we serve families from Bossier City, the parishes of Caddo, Bossier and Desoto, and the surrounding Ark-La-Tex community.
As members of the Dignity Memorial network, Centuries Memorial Funeral Home and Centuries Memorial Park provide the compassionate care you expect from Shreveport businesses as well as the amenities and benefits you deserve from North America’s largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
You are always welcome to stop by Centuries to meet our staff. We're also happy to give you a tour of the funeral home and cemetery.
Centuries Memorial Park cemetery
Situated on more than 80 acres of immaculately groomed gardens, Centuries Memorial Park has been a peaceful final resting place for people in the Ark-La-Tex community since the 1940s.
Beautiful cemetery gardens
Many of our gardens have unique features that enhance the beauty of the property and set us apart from other cemeteries in Shreveport. Visitors enjoy our lovely 3-tiered fountain, the American flags displayed in our veterans gardens, the soaring eagle in our American Heritage garden, as well as the various religious features found throughout the cemetery. A gazebo for funeral and memorial services sits in our Northside Estates garden.
Burial and memorialization options
Centuries Memorial Park offers many burial options: traditional in-ground interment with flat or upright monuments, family estates, private or community mausoleum entombment options and cremation options such as niches, columbaria and benches.
Historic Bell Tower
On the south side of Centuries Memorial Park, you’ll find the historic Bell Tower, a stately 3-story stone structure built in the 1930s that houses 200 glass-front niches.
Encased in marble, these niches can be personalized in any way you desire. Families can place pictures, keepsakes, urns and more in their loved ones’ niches—anything that illustrates a person’s life story. Think: golf balls for your golf pro, a cookie jar for your dessert lover, die-cast cars for a racing fan or a box of jewelry for the fanciest gal in town.
The Bell Tower rings every half hour, 7 am-8 pm. Its harmonious tones travel throughout Centuries Memorial Park.
Honoring veterans and military families
To honor the brave men and women who fought for our country’s freedom, we have dedicated 2 veterans gardens: Veterans Field of Honor I and II. The newer garden has a patriotic feature of an American flag on a pedestal, adding to the garden’s dignified appearance.
We also participate in the Dignity Memorial Homeless Veterans Burial Program to provide dignified and honorable burials for eligible homeless or impoverished veterans.
Room for growth
At Centuries, we understand how important it is to look to the future. Roughly half of our 80 acres are undeveloped, meaning we can add new gardens, sections and features when we need to—and that we’ll be able to serve many more generations of Shreveport families.
