Greenlawn Memorial Park: Historic, Peaceful, Beautiful

Greenlawn Memorial Park is one of Columbia's most historic perpetual care cemeteries. This gorgeous setting combines serenity, natural beauty, and diligent care for generations of families. North Lake, located in the center of our park, offers a water feature and is the site of many local events, including an annual Easter sunrise service, a Greenlawn tradition for over 50 years. The park also has a veteran's section, private family estates, a columbarium with niches for cremated remains, and an incredible granite mausoleum.

Greenlawn Memorial Park is the resting place for notable figures like Matthew J. Perry, Jr., the state's first African-American U.S. District Judge. Born in Columbia, Perry helped gain the legal release of over 7,000 people arrested for participating in Civil Rights demonstrations. He was posthumously inducted into the South Carolina Hall of Fame.

Greenlawn is operated by Thompson Funeral Homes, Columbia’s most distinguished providers. We invite you to take a virtual tour or visit to see the quiet splendor of this historic cemetery.

Heather Leigh, the business owner, is a true professional. She can provide services outside the scope of many others in the industry. She is uniquely qualified to offer services outside the scope of others. She and I met to discuss the eulogy that she delivered perfectly, as if she knew my mom. She treated me with genuine kindness and even gave me some valuable tips on how to work with a funeral home. I confidently recommend this business.
