Pinehaven Memorial Gardens Cemetery and Crematory - WDAM-TV 7-News, Weather, Sports-Hattiesburg, MS

103 Sullivan Kilrain Road

Hattiesburg, MS 39401

My family and I have purchased over 40 acres for developing into a pristine perpetual care cemetery for the citizens of the Pinebelt area. My father Thomas Arnett, a homebuilder for years in the area, and I have joined together in this endeavor to bring to the area a place where families can preserve the memory of their loved ones in a beautiful country setting surrounded with trees and wildlife and know that the property will always be well maintained. We are located on Sullivan Kilrain Road just south of Hwy 11 on the west side of Interstate 59.

As I mention above, we are a new perpetual care cemetery. The perpetual care is important because it guarantees families that years from now after the cemetery is completely sold out and full there is money set aside in a trust account (a minimum of 15% of the property sales price mandated and monitored by the state and chancery court) that the interest alone is used to pay for the maintenance of the property. We all know of cemeteries in our area that have been abandoned and not maintained either due to a lack of funds or remaining family to carry on the maintenance. With Pinehaven Memorial Gardens families can be assured this will not happen to them or their families and loved ones. The following is a brief description of what we offer at Pinehaven.

  • We have personnel on sight 5 days a week maintaining the property.
  • We have an office on site open from 8 to 5pm Monday thru Friday and an operating crematory.
  • We have a committal shelter similar to the National Cemeteries for interment services here at Pinehaven for use if desired or you may choose to have the traditional grave site service.
  • We sell and install markers, headstones, and monuments. All our monuments and headstones are set in place on a concrete foundation to prevent settling after placement.
  • We perform direct cremations for funeral homes in south Mississippi as well as those of the Pinebelt.
  • We sell personal mausoleums designed and built by Fortress Mausoleums, delivered and set anywhere in the Pinebelt.

Because we are new and in the growing and building stage you will notice ongoing work when visiting. The following are just some of the future projects we have planned:

  • Install a gated entrance with beautiful brick columns
  • Perimeter privacy fencing
  • Plant shrubs on each side of the main entrance (Crape Mytles)
  • Perimeter shrubbery/trees for more privacy (Leland Cypress)

Please come by or call us for more information and details about Pinehaven Memorial Gardens and Crematory. We hope to convey our vision and dreams of Pinehaven to you and would be honored to be entrusted with the care and maintenance of the property you chose for the memory of your loved ones.
