Why Evergreen?

To provide a peaceful, caring place of remembrance that protects the past, honors the present, and embraces the future

Honoring Lives Since 1880

For over 140 years, families have entrusted us with the privilege of honoring the lives of their departed loved ones. With serene grounds that offer a full array of memorial options and services, Jacksonville’s oldest and most prestigious operating cemetery is one of the South’s most beautiful.

A Northeast Florida Landmark

With more than 80,0000 lives honored across 167 acres, Evergreen is a place of rich history. Among those remembered here are senators, governors, war veterans and distinguished business and civic leaders. Most, however, are everyday citizens, known best by the friends and family who loved them in life. We are proud to memorialize these important people in the most caring and respectful way possible.

All Are Welcome

Reflecting the diversity of Northeast Florida, Evergreen is the resting place of many religious, ethnic and heritage groups. Some have specially designated acreage within the cemetery. Most of the park is available to all, with adequate capacity for at least another century. A variety of pricing and memorization options gives families the opportunity to create a special place of rest for their loved ones.

Acres of Beautiful Grounds

With more than 100 years of burial capacity remaining, the grounds of Evergreen are shaded by one of Jacksonville’s most impressive tree canopies. History can be felt at every turn, but the impeccably kept grounds also exude a colorful, park-like freshness.

The Financial Strength to Truly Promise Perpetual Care

Evergreen Cemetery is a not-for-profit corporation supported by the largest perpetual trust fund in Florida. The trust ensures the outstanding care of the grounds today and in the future. Evergreen is governed by a local Board of Trustees consisting of long-time Jacksonville community leaders.  The Trustees’ commitment to Evergreen is reflected in that their family burial estates are in Evergreen.

Caring, Compassionate, Convenient

Evergreen is not only a cemetery, but also a funeral home and crematory.  By combining a cemetery, funeral home, and crematory, Evergreen can offer families cost savings along with the convenience of making all their arrangements in one location. Evergreen Funeral Home and Crematory is available to serve your needs whether you are using Evergreen Cemetery or any other resting place of your choice.

We Offer Pre-Planning for Peace of Mind

Most people who are memorialized at Evergreen pre-planned their funeral and burial arrangements prior to their deaths. The decision to pre-plan is a wise one for emotional and practical reasons.  At a time of loss, surviving family members will be relieved that their emotions can be focused on family, rather than on administrative and financial details.
