Palmetto Cremation Society & Event Center celebrates its new home near the corner of N. Rhett Ave. and Remount Road in the Charleston Farms area of North Charleston, between Park Circle and Hanahan.  Originally built in 1982 as John Liberatos Crematorium in the Charleston Neck area - adjacent to the historic Magnolia, Bethany and St. Lawrence Cemeteries - Palmetto Cremation Society was the first crematory in the Tri-County.

From the Owner: “In response to the increased demand in our area for simple, no-frills, cost-conscious services, we expanded our service offerings and facility to better suit what the community has been asking for. We are very excited about the new building. It’s perfect for the type of simple, affordable, quality service so many people in our area are looking for today."

 “We were Cremation when Cremation wasn’t cool; when traditional funeral homes were avoiding it as an option and hoping it would disappear. We embraced it and specialize in it. Our current expansion is part of our long-standing commitment to remain innovative and responsive to peoples’ needs and wishes we see every day.” 

Founded and built in 1982, The Palmetto Cremation Society is the oldest crematory in the Greater Charleston Area. With our affordably priced plans, you can ensure dignity, quality, and care for you and your loved ones. Our compassionate and respectful staff will help you in your time of grief, memorializing those who have passed away while facilitating a healing experience for those left behind. We offer our services in: North Charleston, Ladson, Hanahan, Goose Creek, Summerville, and West Ashley, SC. Call us today!
