Established in 1993, the Carolina Memorial funeral home and cemetery offices are located in one building. The 17,000-square-foot facility was constructed in keeping with “Old Charleston” architecture and features four lovely visitation rooms and a large chapel with a 16-foot ceiling. The chapel seats up to 300 guests. Also included in the building are meeting rooms and offices.
CAROLINA MEMORIAL PARK
The beautiful Carolina Memorial Park was established as a cemetery in 1954 and is located just off Interstate 26, a few miles due west of Charleston. With more than 50 acres, it is one of the largest cemeteries in South Carolina. A wide range of burial options is available including traditional ground burial, lawn crypts, garden and chapel mausoleum entombment, as well as several options for those who choose cremation. Those who have served our country can be honored in a special veterans section in Carolina Memorial Park. There is also a lawn crypt area designated for veterans.
The red brick tower, once the office building for the cemetery, is considered by many to be a landmark in North Charleston. Many intriguing monuments and features can be seen at Carolina Memorial Park, including monuments of Gethsemane and praying hands. A magnificent white marble fountain, originally carved in 1859, was created in Carrara, Italy. It is 15 feet tall and is located in the fountain garden.
Carolina Memorial Park is truly a garden park with many beautiful plants including azaleas, dogwoods, flowering Indian hawthornes, holly and boxwood. These plants add flowers and greenery to the grounds throughout the year.
