St. Bernard Funeral Home

St. Bernard Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home has served the families of St. Bernard Parish for 40 years. Following our property damage from Hurricane Katrina, we are proud to announce the reopening of our newly built funeral home and honored to serve families from our facility once again. Since its founding in 1965, the families of St. Bernard Parish have embraced St. Bernard Memorial Gardens as one of the area's finest and most beautiful resting places.

St. Bernard Memorial also offers The Simplicity Plan® prearrangement program — an easy way to handle an important family responsibility.
