Brookside Funeral Home and Memorial Park was established in the 1930s by Mr. Ira Brooks. Today, we offer our families the convenience of a funeral home, crematory and memorial park in one location.
We're proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® national network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. Dignity Memorial providers offer exclusive benefits, including National Transferability of Prearranged Services, the Bereavement Travel Program, the 24-Hour Compassion Helpline® and access to an acclaimed grief management library. We are committed to exceeding expectations and delivering a standard of service that is 100 percent guaranteed. We offer families a full spectrum of Dignity Memorial plans to help families create memorable services to honor their loved ones. Additionally, to better serve families, members of our staff are bilingual in Spanish and English.
At Brookside Funeral Home, families are offered many different venues in which to memorialize the life and accomplishments of their loved ones. The funeral home is located adjacent to the cemetery, providing families who have suffered the loss of a loved one the ability to have all their immediate needs met in one convenient location. The crematory, also located on the grounds of Brookside Memorial Park, provides comfort to our families desiring a service with cremation in knowing that their loved one never leaves the caring and professional hands of our staff. Through the assistance of trained Dignity Memorial network providers, meaningful tributes are designed according to the unique qualities of the life that is being honored.
We offer many facilities for memorialization and funeral ceremonies, including visitation and staterooms of varying sizes, a large and comforting chapel with seating for over 200 guests and our private and historic Chapel of Chimes. The Chapel of Chimes is located in the center of Brookside Memorial Park alongside the historic Berry Cemetery, a family cemetery which was established before the Civil War and serves as the final resting place of many of the brave men who lost their lives during battle. The simple masonry architecture of the Chapel of Chimes is a perfect complement to the serene setting it occupies. The beautiful chimes from the chapel tower can be heard from several surrounding areas and their soft tones add to many services of remembrance held there.
Brookside Memorial Park is situated on 290 acres distinguished by oak and pine trees, Spanish moss and a carefully tended lawn. Our park includes a veterans' monument located next to our Chapel of Chimes, a beautiful alter monument, various religious features throughout our grounds, and a George Washington statue in our Masonic gardens.
At Brookside Funeral Home, each staff member is committed to a standard of excellence, ethics and honesty that guides them as they help families bring honor and recognition to the lives of their loved ones. We call it 'The Dignity® Promise.' The trust placed with Brookside Funeral Home and Memorial Park serves as a constant reminder of that commitment.
