Robertson County Memorial Gardens in Springfield, a family-owned and locally operated business that has served families in the Robertson County area for 10 years, is building a new funeral home. As part of this new expansion the name will change to Springfield Memorial Gardens, Funeral Home & Cremation Center.
“We are looking forward to starting construction within 30 days on our new building. This new facility will enable us to offer everything families need in one location,” states Bill Gregory, owner. “Families tell us they want the convenience of having the service here, where their loved one will be memorialized. Now they can make all of their plans in one place.”

“In the meantime, our staff has been expanded to meet the demands of families who have expressed interest in preplanning. The state of Tennessee has already granted our funeral establishment license and we are ready to serve families today, thanks to the gracious offer of local churches to use their facility for services until our new building is complete.”
They have announced the hiring of their first funeral director. Abigail Lemley Tewmey has already come on board and is currently training at another Family Legacy location in Hendersonville. Abigail’s family has lived in Springfield for six generations and she has deep ties to the community. She is delighted to be a part of such a great thing coming to Springfield.
The funeral home at over 10,000 square feet will offer families the newest facility in Robertson County, including a reception hall with fireplace indoor and out, covered patios, and children’s room. The layout includes a gallery designed to offer families many ideas for planning an event worthy of commemorating the life of their loved one.
In addition, for those choosing cremation, Family Legacy owns and operates their own private crematory. This ensures loved ones never leave their care.
“I’m so pleased to be able to help families by offering all of the services needed under one roof. We already offer the most burial options to local families,” said Anne Lundregan, the Family Service Counselor who handles all the burials for the cemetery. “Our cemetery encompasses about 20 acres and overlooks South Haven Baptist Church. Not only do we offer ground spaces with flat bronze memorials, but we also have upright monuments and mausoleums. Our newest mausoleum is also under construction.” Lundregan added.
Located at the gateway to Springfield on Hwy 41 south of town, Springfield Memorial Gardens, Funeral Home & Cremation Center serves both the city and surrounding areas of Springfield. The meticulously maintained cemetery offers ground spaces, lawn crypt garden spaces, community/chapel mausoleums and private mausoleums. The cemetery also showcases a variety of beautiful flowering trees and shrubs.
“The friendly staff at Springfield Memorial Gardens, Funeral Home & Cremation Center is here to help local families at their time of loss or with pre-planning needs,” says Lundregan. “For more information on pricing and transferring options, call (615) 384-5437.
