Why Serenity?

Our People.  Our Gardens.  Our Facilities.  Our Prices.

Our People.
We hire compassionate Funeral Directors who take great pride in their ability to help families through their darkest moments.  Our Funeral Directors will work with you in advance of need or at time of need to develop a service that honors your life and the life of your loved one.  Our support staff can work with your family to develop a slideshow presentation of your loved one, organize a play list of your loved ones favorite music, or arrange the visitation area to showcase family photos and keepsake items.  These personal touches can offer your friends and acquaintances a glimpse in to a part of your loved ones life they may have not known. 

Our Gardens
Serenity has three well-maintained cemeteries and a mausoleum: Serenity Memorial Garden, Lawn haven Memorial Garden and Serenity Rest.  Serenity Memorial Garden and Lawn Haven Memorial Garden are historic cemeteries offering traditional burial services.  Serenity Rest is a botanical garden with granite benches, pedestals, posts, and columbarium niches for those families choosing cremation.  Our Mausoleum, the Chapel of the Chimes, offers above ground burial for those families preferring this disposition.  All offer guests a tranquil environment for quiet reflection and remembrance.

Our Facilities.
Serenity Funeral Home.  Serenity Funeral Home is located in west Mobile County on 400 acres of land.  The funeral home houses Alabama’s largest chapel which can comfortably seat 350 guests.  The funeral home has four large parlors to accommodate visitations.  Each parlor is nicely decorated with comfortable furnishings and a large high-definition television to view a slideshow of family and friends.

Serenity Business Office.  Behind the funeral home and breezeway, you will find Serenity’s business office.  This building houses our family counselors, bookkeepers and office staff.  Family’s visit this office to retrieve death certificates, arrangement funeral services, make payments on services and locate the final resting place of their loved ones in our cemeteries.

Serenity Event Center.  Located due south of the botanical garden, this multi-purpose, stand-alone building was designed for entertaining.  The Serenity Event Center is a place where guests can celebrate life occasions like weddings, family reunions, rehearsal dinners, business meetings, baby showers and much more.  The event center has state-of-the-art audio and video equipment, two beautifully furnished reception areas, large high-definition televisions and projector screens.  The event center can be configured to host auditorium style seating, formal dinners, business meetings and parties with a dance floor and a band/DJ.  The rental fee includes the use of the audio/visual equipment as well as the use of ten 72” table rounds, 100 leather chairs, linens, and place settings for up to 100.

Serenity Grounds and Equipment.  Serenity strives to be a good steward of the land and resources in our care.  This is why we developed a botanical garden, planted 10 acres of red clover, installed an Alabama Department of Environmental Management certified water treatment plant and purchase low carbon emission equipment.  Serenity’s botanical garden and 10 acres of red clover attract and grow local pollinators like honey bees, butterflies, and other insects.  As you know pollinators are imperative to our food chain.  Serenity is the only funeral home in the State of Alabama to install an ADEM certified water treatment plant.  We don’t want the chemicals and waste from our facility to pollute Mobile’s water system.

Our Prices.
Funeral services, burials and cremations are value priced at Serenity.  Our staff regularly collects General Price Lists from other funeral homes and cemeteries in Mobile County.  A traditional funeral service at Serenity is more than $2000 less than the same service at Radney Funeral Home, Pine Crest Funeral Home or Mobile Memorial Gardens.  A complete price breakdown of the six most commonly used funeral homes in Mobile County is available for download at Price Comparison.
