For over 50 years Southern Palms has been committed to serving the living while caring for the dead. This tradition started when Leamon Todd purchased a parcel of land from the Vereen family in 1960 and started Southeastern Memorial Gardens, which changed its name to Southern Palms Memorial Gardens in 2011 to better suit its beauty and serenity. Southern Palms proudly serves families from all cultures, all religions, and all walks of life. The history of North Myrtle Beach and the coastal area rests within our gardens. Many of our town's founders are buried here. Every individual within our cemetery was special to someone and some family. They are now a special part of our family at Southern Palms Memorial Gardens. As long as people continue to create legacies, we will be here to honor them and the families in the utmost respectful, compassionate, and peaceful manner.
