Sunland Mortuary & Cremation Center and Sunland Memorial Park understand the pain of losing someone you love. Our compassionate teams are here for you and will help you navigate the process of planning a funeral or cremation and choosing a fitting burial and memorial. Working together, the sister locations allow you to handle all your funeral and burial arrangements.

A peaceful Phoenix-area funeral home

Water feature at Sunland Memorial Park, Mortuary & Cremation CenterLocated off North Del Webb Road, behind St. Clement of Rome Catholic Church and Fountain of Life Lutheran Church, Sunland Mortuary & Cremation Center has no direct frontage or road exposure. This ensures a quiet setting that's convenient to Phoenix but seemingly far away.

With two chapels inside the funeral home, a chapel at the cemetery and places for outdoor gatherings, you'll be able to find just the right space for your service.

Lakeside Chapel seats around 120 guests and features views of the property's 2-acre lake. It has white brick walls and a modern look and feel. Windows on each side of the chapel let natural light stream in.

The much smaller Remembrance Chapel seats up to 12 guests. This intimate space is perfect for families who wish for a simple goodbye.

Sun City cremation services

Signature Dedication at Sunland Memorial Park, Mortuary & Cremation CenterThere are many options for cremation in the Phoenix area—and they're not all equal. We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our all-inclusive pricing. With facilities for outdoor services, expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.



If you're interested in cemetery placement, Sunland Memorial Park has many cremation options, including niches and a large cremation garden.

And for those who wish for something more momentous, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

Sunland Memorial Park

Outdoor mausoleum at Sunland Memorial Park, Mortuary & Cremation CenterOccupying close to 45 acres in Sun City, Sunland Memorial Park is a peaceful final resting place. In addition to lush lawns and a 2-acre lake, several varieties of olive, palm, pine, sissoo and oak trees grace the park.

Cremation and burial gardens

Manicured gardens provide a range of burial options. A walk down one of our winding paths reveals in-ground burials, mausoleums, columbaria, aboveground crypts, ossuaries, cremation niches and benches, private and semiprivate estates and cremation scattering gardens.

Of 11 distinct gardens at Sunland Memorial Park, several are dedicated to specific religions or cultures. Prayer II is resting place for both Conservative and Reform members of Jewish congregations. A geniza in this section provides for the proper disposal of religious artifacts and texts. The Garden of Valor is dedicated to veterans.

One of our more exclusive sections is located by the lake. It includes lawn crypts, cremation gardens, private and semiprivate estates, and three mausoleums. Each spring, Indian hawthorn and jacarandas produce vibrant, fragrant blossoms, adding seasonal beauty to this area.

Chapel of Peace

Chapel at Sunland Memorial Park, Mortuary & Cremation CenterLocated in the cemetery's Mausoleum of Peace, Chapel of Peace seats up to 300 guests and is a traditional space for holding committal services. On a wall of the Mausoleum of Peace, which sits on the cemetery's east side, you'll find one of the larger mosaic art pieces in the United States. Its intricate tile work depicts soaring doves as a symbol of freedom.

All are welcome here

Though we are located in the heart of Sun City, a retirement community popular with snowbirds, there is no age or residency requirement to be buried here. Photos convey a lot, but we invite you to come see Sunland Memorial Park for yourself. You are welcome to visit the cemetery anytime or call us to schedule a guided tour.

Sunland Pet Rest Cemetery

For many of us, pets are part of the family. We believe in giving companion animals the memorials they deserve. As a whole-family cemetery, Sunland Memorial Park has dedicated a 2-acre garden to furred and feathered friends. Called Sunland Pet Rest Cemetery, it provides a place to memorialize the lives of loyal companions. Whether you choose a traditional burial or cremation burial for your beloved animal, you can trust that we will show the same care and compassion as we give to every life we honor.

For pets who are still part of our lives, we host a pet blessing as well as pet photos during the year.
