About Us

About Us

Since 1958, Osceola Memory Gardens has provided respectful service and options for families to create a meaningful service at an affordable cost. We serve all religions and have full-time staff available 24 hours-a-day, every day of the year. Osceola Memory Gardens is housed in three beautiful facilities conveniently located in Kissimmee, Saint Cloud, and Poinciana Florida. The following are just a few of the ways we are unique: 

Family owned and operated: Many death care businesses in Central Florida are owned by huge chains and multi-national conglomerates. We, however, proudly remain independently owned and operated. Osceola Memory Gardens and our staff believe that we are accountable to you, not far-away stockholders. We believe that the most valuable thing we own is our reputation. We are kind, gentle, and knowledgeable men and women who respect your right to choose without pressure or undue influence.

The owners and staff of Osceola Memory Gardens are your neighbors, and we are the ones who live and are active in your community.

Personalized services: Our staff is specially selected and trained to facilitate services that reflect your needs and cultural traditions. Our goal is to listen, suggest, organize, and carry out ceremonies that will be comforting and full of meaning.

Price and Value: We understand that we have only one opportunity to serve you and your family sensitively and correctly, and for over 50 years have always, voluntarily, adhered to high standards. We attract and retain the best professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable staff possible. Our people provide consistently outstanding care to those we serve.

All your needs at one location: Since Osceola Memory Gardens owns and operates its own funeral homes, cemetery, on-site crematory and flower shop, we can offer you “one-stop” service. This enables you to work with one firm, allowing all your funeral, cemetery, cremation and floral arrangements to be cared for in one of our three convenient locations.

Why having our own Crematory is important to youOsceola Memory Gardens owns and operates the only on-site Crematory in Osceola County. This gives us the ability to control and oversee every aspect of the cremation process. As a result, we can ensure families’ ultimate security and the most dignified handling of every cremation. You’ll take comfort knowing that your loved one never leaves the shelter of our expert care. Our highly trained and certified personnel perform all cremations following a strict and secure process with our state-of-the-art equipment. Click here for more information. 

Planning for your future: We provide complimentary assistance with planning your funeral ahead of time. You have the option of locking in today's prices and funding your plan or simply placing your wishes on file and allowing the costs to be paid at the time of need. Pre-planning ensures your wishes are carried out, prevents emotional overspending, locks in today's prices and relieves your family from the burden and cost of making difficult decisions.

Returning Home to Your Country of Origin: Repatriation services is a process of helping families bring their loved one home after a death has occurred. We can help. With our multi-cultural community, it's important for a funeral home to be properly equipped to help families get their loved one home. The process of repatriation can be difficult and complex. We have years of experience in helping families through this process. We have relationships with consulates across the globe and can handle the entire process for you.

Our Guarantee to you: Our fair prices represent the greatest value in the area. Our staff is kind, considerate and knowledgeable. Our facilities are updated and immaculate. If you are dissatisfied with any of our professional services or facilities, we will reduce or eliminate that charge.
