Welcome to Restlawn Park & Mausoleum

Restlawn was started in 1971 by Larry J Chedotal. It is comprised of 30 acres and is considered to be a memorial park, with 10 separate burial gardens, cremation lots, a section of lawn crypts, a garden of honor, a Vietnamese section and of course our mausoleum.

Restlawn has always been family owned & operated. Larry J Chedotal, Jr was just promoted to President of the company with his son, Ryan tight on his heels.

The Chedotals’ also own Natchez Trace Funeral Home, Memorial Park Cemetery & Crematory out of Madison, MS.

Restlawn Park & Mausoleum is a Perpetual Care Cemetery. What this means to the consumer is with each purchase made, a portion of the proceeds will be put into an Irrevocable Perpetual Care Trust Fund to guarantee that your property will be maintained eternally.

Restlawn Park & Mausoleum was the 1st cemetery with a Garden of Honor. We take pride in honoring all of our veterans with all the dignity they deserve. We have beautiful monuments and special tributes to our veterans within our Garden of Honor.

We would like to thank all of our customers and families over the past 40+ years.  If you would like additional information on our cemetery or would like a personal tour, please visit the “Contact Us” tab, for information and phone numbers.
