This grey granite columbarium was added to the grounds of Elmwood Cemetery in 2005. It was generously donated to Elmwood by Anne and John Stokes. The columbarium is conveniently located just outside of the Lord's Chapel and next to the Miller Garden. The columbarium is shaded by a mature Gingko tree and can be seen from the front porch steps of the historic Phillips Cottage. 

There are 250 niches within the columbarium and they face both east and west. Each niche allows for the inurnment of two urns of approved size. Engraving on the face plate of each niche is encouraged, and the guidelines are available by contacting an Elmwood staff member. 

If you are interested in purchasing a niche within the Stokes Columbarium, please contact a member of the Elmwood staff at 901-774-3212, or email bob [at] elmwoodcemetery [dot] org.
