Celebration of Life Center …
Our new Celebration of Life Center is now open at Greenlawn Southwest. The slideshow below shows the transformation from our Groundbreaking Ceremony in September 2011 to the Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony in March 2012.
Greenlawn Funeral Homes, Cemeteries and Cremations has been helping the families of Bakersfield and Kern County for more than 75 years. As our community has expanded, so has the need for a larger facility. We have listened to the requests presented to us by our families, and to that end, our new facility includes the following:
· Memorial Chapel - approximately 3,800 square feet, raised platform, seating for 300
· Total building occupancy - 541
· State-of-the-art audiovisual and sound systems with service viewing screens throughout
· Attached reception area with kitchen, seating for 40 with additional seating in the garden/patio area
· Indoor mausoleum with glass-front niches for personal memorialization
· On-site flower shop
· 10,008 total square footage
It is also our desire to make the chapel and reception areas available to churches, organizations, and individuals needing a meeting area.
