Choosing a Cemetery in South Carolina
Your choice of South Carolina cemetery may depend on your loved ones and personal taste. But here are details of some SC cemeteries to get you started.
The beauty of Greenville, named the third best small city in the United States by Conde Nast Traveler magazine in 2017, can be seen in Graceland Cemetery West, which features a natural two-acre artesian well pond. Not to be outdone, Graceland Cemetery East, in Simpsonville, has been described as the prettiest cemetery in upstate South Carolina. Simpsonville is southeast of Greenville and is considered part of the "Golden Strip," a group of thriving cities in South Carolina.
History buffs may find it interesting that Forest Lawn Cemetery in Laurens (named after the Revolutionary War hero Henry Laurens) is the final resting place for a number of Revolutionary soldiers. And Frederick Memorial Gardens located 50 miles between both Greenville and Charlotte features a worthy veterans' section.
