Greater Golden Gates Cemetery, a 10-acre cemetery with future sections yet to be developed, has been designed to offer an eternal resting place for everyone. We are comfortably nestled off U.S. Highway 31 near the beautifully landscaped rear entrance to Maxwell Air Force Base. We offer traditional in-ground burial, mausoleum entombment, and cremation memorialization. People from all walks of life are welcomed and sheltered within our gates.





Greater Golden Gates offers one of the most relaxing settings in the River Region. We pride ourselves on offering a pristine park-like atmosphere or meditation area for cemetery visitors. The cemetery is open daily from dawn to dusk. We ask that you assist us in keeping it a place where tranquility and quiet are the norm.
