Financial details have not been disclosed.
Oaklawn is one of the oldest and most well-maintained cemeteries in Northeast Florida. The 80-acre park is close to completing construction of a new 9,000-square-foot funeral home facility, which will allow expanded services and added conveniences to Oaklawn families. The services that have always been offered at Oaklawn will continue to be available, but will now be enhanced with the product and service options offered by Dignity Memorial providers.
Dignity Memorial is a network of more than 1,800 funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, offering an unmatched combination of products and locations, serving families with care, integrity, respect and service excellence.
