The beautiful and expansive Greelawn Cemetery, located on the eastern side of Spartanburg, serves as the final resting place for many families in this part of the Upstate. Owned and maintained by the J.F. Floyd Mortuary, the cemetery features a quiet, park-like setting. Greenlawn Chapel, located within the cemetery grounds, can seat up to 400 guests.
The J.F. Floyd Mortuary – a funeral home founded in 1886 – has been serving Spartanburg County for over 125 years. It welcomes people of “all faiths or beliefs, religious or otherwise.”
Greenlawn Cemetery opened in 1969 and has become a popular place for visitors seeking respite from the nearby city. Photographers also enjoy the hallowed grounds, especially in the fall when its foliage explodes with vibrant hues.
