About

When a family in the Kansas City, Missouri, area loses a loved one, they trust the compassionate team at White Chapel Funeral Home and Cemetery to handle the funeral and burial services. The location strives to provide individual attention and unique celebrations to people from all walks of life.

A caring Kansas City funeral home

White Chapel Funeral Home has 2 non-denominational chapels, 3 visitation rooms and 2 planning rooms.

Large and modern, the main chapel seats up to 150 guests. The mono-pitched roofline accentuates a beautiful wood-panel ceiling and exposed wood beams. Chandeliers and concealed, undermount lighting give the chapel a glow. Windows at the roofline let in natural light during daytime services.

The smaller south chapel is better suited for intimate services and gatherings. Both chapels double as spaces for catered receptions after memorial services.

Personalized funeral services

Chapel at White Chapel CemeteryFuneral service options have evolved in our many decades in business, but our commitment to high standards remains unchanged. White Chapel Funeral Home has responded to changing times, and you can expect to find our professional team dedicated to your every need.

Whether you are seeking a direct cremation, a full traditional funeral or a modern celebration of life (with live music, catering and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one), we go the extra mile to make it happen—and we do it with a high level of care and compassion.

Want a dove release? You got it. The best barbecue in Kansas City? You can have that, too. Monogrammed seed packets or key chains as mementos? Yes. Our team will take the time to visit with your family and help plan a memorial service filled with special details.

We are here for you

As members of the Dignity Memorial® network, the funeral home and memorial park give you not only the warm, familiar attention you expect from locally operated businesses but also the value you deserve by way of the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America.

We invite you to call us for immediate assistance or to learn more about planning ahead.

History

Signage at White Chapel CemeteryWhite Chapel Cemetery was established in Gladstone, Missouri, on the outskirts of Kansas City, in the early 1950s on 45 acres of open pastureland. In 1973, White Chapel Funeral Home opened on the cemetery property. Having these sister locations together allows people to plan both funeral and burial arrangements conveniently.

White Chapel Cemetery

White Chapel Cemetery comprises 45 meticulously maintained acres. It is a peaceful place of evergreen trees (cypress, pine, Douglas fir and cedar), maples, Bradford pears, red sunset sweet-gums and purple plums. When in bloom, honeysuckle and roses scent the air. Several geese have made the cemetery's lake their home.

Burial options

Estate area at White Chapel CemeteryWhite Chapel Cemetery offers an array of interment options: in-ground burial, 4 mausoleum complexes, columbaria, lawn crypts, cremation niches and benches, and private and semiprivate estates.

Revelations is a large indoor mausoleum. It features personalized glass-front niches. Unlike traditional granite memorials that allow only for a name and dates, these niches allow for personal items. Think: favorite records, family photographs, sports memorabilia or a collection of jewelry. In lieu of a traditional urn, cremated remains could be held in a tobacco canister, baseball, cookie jar or another personally meaningful container.

Inside the mausoleum, there are sitting areas with comfortable chairs and benches. Many families choose to hold committal services here instead of outside or in 1 of the funeral home's chapels.

Our newest development, the cremation section of Garden of Memories holds numerous options for those who choose cremation. Granite niches and posts can be personalized. Custom private columbarium estates allow families to create a legacy for generations to come.

Honoring veterans and public servants

White Chapel Funeral Home and White Chapel Cemetery participate in the Homeless Veterans Burial Program and the Public Servants Program.

Through the Homeless Veterans Burial Program, we coordinate with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, local medical examiners, coroners, veterans advocates and veterans organizations to provide veterans funerals for those who have fallen on hard times.

The Public Servants Program recognizes the courage and selflessness of career and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel by providing honorable, no-cost memorials for those who fall in the line of duty. The program also offers counseling services to family members, as well as the opportunity to create an internet tribute as a loving memorial.

Community events

Mausoleum at White Chapel CemeteryWhite Chapel Funeral Home and White Chapel Cemetery hold a number of events during the year. The Memorial Day service honors those who have given their lives for our freedom. Guests can expect moving speeches and a reception in front of Revelations Mausoleum. In December, we host a non-denominational Night of Remembrance, which includes sweet treats and seasonal music. Guests are invited to hang ornaments with the names and photos of loved ones on our tree and light candles in their honor. Community leaders from many religious groups are present to provide loving support.
