Our History

Rolling Hills Memory Gardens was founded in 1975 to serve Cherokee, Cobb and Bartow County residents. It’s 28 acres of rolling hills creates a peaceful and tranquil setting. Families can expect service to exceed their expectations while knowing their loved ones will be placed in a beautiful and perpetually maintained resting place.

When we sit down with a family, we have just one goal: to create a fitting, memorable and affordable service for their loved one. Together, we explore the wide variety of services and products available, as well as a wealth of creative ideas and suggestions.

Together, we’ll design a memorial or funeral service that suits their needs now, and in the future. Families who come to us know that years from now, they will have deep peace-of-mind because in coming to us, they’ve done their best to honor their loved one.

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
