Designing Your Memorial
There are few decisions in life as personal as deciding where you wish to be permanently memorialized. After all, it is a decision that extends into the lifetimes of your children and grandchildren – where do you wish them to go to honor your memory and share their emotions?
We are proud to be the stewards of King Memorial Park, where there are 154 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with unique cremation gardens, and the elegant Grand Heritage Mausoleum & Chapel. This means we can offer your family a wide selection of memorialization options.
No two families are alike in their vision of remembrance. The experienced staff of Marshall-March Funeral Homes can help you arrive at the perfect decision for you, and your family. We would be honored to guide you through the cemetery grounds, explore your perspectives, and make suggestions. Ultimately, the decision is in your hands; but our expertise can certainly guide you.
Deciding on the type of memorial property is a very personal decision. The March Family, through King Memorial Park, gives families a beautiful setting where meditation, reflection, remembrance, and healing can take place.
Sometimes one family member wants to be buried and another wishes to be cremated, yet they want to be together. Because we know this to be a common wish, Marshall-March Funeral Homes makes it simple for families. Our staff will help you arrange for a common burial of both loved ones in the same plot. Call Marshall-March Funeral Homes at today, or send us an email inquiry today to discuss your options.
At one time the advantages of mausoleum entombment were available only to royalty, the famed or the very wealthy. Well-known mausoleums include the Taj Mahal, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Egyptian Pyramids. Mausoleum property is now affordable to most everyone.
The 5-tier chapel/ mausoleum at King Memorial Park, owned and operated by Marshall-March Funeral Homes is a community mausoleum with crypt spaces and cremation niche sections. Known as the Grand Heritage Mausoleum & Chapel, this beautiful building is the first mausoleum built in an African-American cemetery, and features marble and granite imported from Italy with an interior stained-glass chapel.
Private family mausoleum property is also available. These mausoleums are individually designed, custom-built and personalized to reflect the traditions and values of the individual or family. We encourage you to speak with a member of our professional staff regarding mausoleum entombment at King Memorial Park.
Cremation niches, including those with glass front panels, are available in our mausoleum; while our outdoor Shepherd in the Storm cremation garden offers families a uniquely dramatic outdoor setting for interment of their loved one’s ashes. We are also proud to offer families cremation niches in the sidewalk along The Walk of Honor around our memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We also provide bench, tree, and statue memorial interment of cremated remains.
