Mausoleum at Southland Memorial GardensWith a focus on serving families, Southland Memorial Gardens features a park-like setting full of mature trees, statues and plenty of space. We offer both a mausoleum for those who prefer cremation and properties for traditional in-ground burials. Families also have access to our on-site Chapel of Hope and family burial properties.

Southland Memorial Gardens has over 19 developed gardens as well as a double-depth garden for veterans. In addition, our properties are situated on 60 acres near the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, with 43 of those acres developed for burial, entombment and cremation services. Caughman-Harman Funeral Home is also located on the grounds of our beautiful cemetery.
