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 Funeral Home is the choice of most caring families. We believe every life is unique, and that every funeral should be too. St. Bernard Memorial also offers The Simplicity Plan® prearrangement program — an easy way to handle an important family responsibility.

It is still adorned by the magnificent stained-glass window that weathered Hurricane Katrina and has been restored to its original beauty. Originally built in 1997, St. Bernard Memorial Funeral Home, located adjacent to the cemetery grounds, represents the area's premier funeral home/cemetery combination.
