Founded in 1963, Celestial Memorial Gardens is one of the few remaining family owned and operated perpetual care cemeteries remaining in Columbia.

Celestial Memorial Gardens is conveniently located just off US 1, on Delree Street. This beautiful park was founded in 1963, by the late Duke Newton. Since that time, Celestial Memorial Gardens has served our Columbia area families by assisting them in making both At-Need and Pre-Need burial arrangements

This park is situated on a 35 acre tract of land, easily accessible to our Columbia area residents. At this time only, 15 acres are developed, leaving 20 acres for future development. Burial property is available in our established gardens and mausoleums. 

The availability of so much property allows families to establish a burial estate for current and future generations, which helps maintain your family’s heritage.

Celestial is unique in that it offers families the choice of traditional upright monuments, flat bronze and a new flat bevel granite memorial option. 

By virtue of location, weekend burial availability, property availability, choice in memorialization, and our superior family service, Celestial Memorial Gardens truly is the most convenient and accommodating perpetual care cemetery in the Columbia area.
