Our Funeral Home Located on the grounds of Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park, our funeral home offers all families the convenience and comfort of making all arrangements for funeral services, merchandise, flowers and memorial property in one location. Since opening in 1992, our professional funeral directors have helped thousands of families through their most difficult times of need. This caring service offered in our warm and comfortable setting is why families continue to choose Sylvan Abbey. Our Memorial Park Established in 1853, Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park is home to Pinellas County's oldest recorded burial. For nearly 150 years, families in Clearwater, Florida have turned to Sylvan Abbey as their final resting place, joining many of the area's pioneering families and city founders. While rich in history, our memorial park remains vibrant and progressive, offering state-of-the-art burial options. Much of our 95-acre memorial park is densely shaded by more than 1,000 mature southern live oaks shrouded with Spanish moss. This old south atmosphere is enhanced by flowering magnolia and dogwood trees throughout, four beautifully landscaped ponds surrounded by stately oaks and bald cypress trees, and colorful azaleas in bloom each spring. A walk through Sylvan Abbey's magnificent grounds reveals structures and statuary by some of the world's finest artists and craftsmen. The centerpiece of our park is Peacefield Mausoleum and the Garden of Reflection Cremation Garden. Peacefield Mausoleum Well on its way to being one of the largest community mausoleums in the state of Florida, when completed Peacefield Mausoleum will encompass 16 mausoleum buildings surrounding two landscaped atriums with the beautiful Peacefield Chapel at its center. Today, the first two phases have been completed, providing thousands of burial spaces nestled among the two atriums and the two-story, open-air Peacefield Chapel. Warm brick and wood accents complement the rich marble interior walls. Magnificent stained-glass windows depict spiritual and natural images. In the chapel itself, the wood and glass cathedral ceiling rises nearly 60 feet; the chapel is home to two of the area's largest and most beautiful stained-glass windows, The Glory of Heaven and The Creation. Garden of Reflection Cremation Garden Here, the elements and beauty of nature come together to inspire unique and affordable choices reflecting the individuality and beliefs of those choosing cremation. In the Autumn of 2004, the Garden of Reflection opened to reveal quiet walkways and graceful palms that will provide a place of comfort and reflection for generations to come. "Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park recognized as one of the top 20 grounds organizations." The care and attention to detail on which Sylvan Abbey's professional grounds team prides itself has not gone unnoticed. Sylvan Abbey was recognized by two national landscape organizations. In September 2000, Landscape Management magazine named Sylvan Abbey one of the "Top 20 Grounds Organizations in the United States and Canada." The Professional Grounds Management Society and Landscape Management magazine cosponsored the 2000 Green Star Professional Grounds Management Honor Award bestowed upon Sylvan Abbey for excellence in the Green Industry.
