Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

We realize, due to the Coronavirus, that your life has drastically changed over the past few months. Please know that we understand the emotional turmoil that you are feeling. Having to deal with the loss of a loved one during this time adds to that exponentially.
Despite the Coronavirus, our offices will remain open and our staff will continue to offer the same level of care to which you have become accustomed. Our main objective is to ensure that we take every precaution necessary to minimize the risk for contamination of the Coronavirus. For this reason, we are asking that you please call our funeral home (904-249-1100) prior to coming in to see us. We are doing our best to schedule time between appointments to accommodate the CDC’s recommendation of social distancing.
We will, whenever possible, perform the services that you request for your loved one; however, there could be circumstances that are out of our control which will hinder some requests.   We will handle all issues presented to us as this situation unfolds.
No one is immune to what is happening in our nation. Please stay safe, we will all get through this pandemic together.

Veterans Headstones


The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a Government headstone or marker for the unmarked grave of any deceased eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world, regardless of their date of death.   For eligible veterans that died on or after Nov. 1, 1990, VA may also provide a headstone or marker for graves that are already marked with a private headstone or marker. When the grave is already marked, applicants will have the option to apply for either a traditional headstone or marker, or a new device (available spring 2009).  

Flat markers in granite, marble, and bronze and upright headstones in granite and marble are available. The style chosen must be consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial. Niche markers are also available to mark columbaria used for inurnment of cremated remains.

When burial or memorialization is in a national cemetery, state veterans' cemetery, or military post/base cemetery, a headstone or marker will be ordered by the cemetery officials based on inscription information provided by the next of kin or authorized representative.

Spouses and dependents are not eligible for a Government-furnished headstone or marker unless they are buried in a national cemetery, state veteran's cemetery, or military post/base cemetery.

Note: There is no charge for the headstone or marker itself, however arrangements for placing it in a private cemetery are the applicant's responsibility and all setting fees are at private expense.
