About

Located in Glendale, Arizona, West Resthaven Funeral Home and West Resthaven Park Cemetery are sister locations committed to caring for families and planning unique memorials that honor their loved ones. Together we provide convenience and comfort for families.

A modern Glendale funeral home

Chapel at West Resthaven Funeral HomeBuilt on the grounds of West Resthaven Park Cemetery in 2009, West Resthaven Funeral Home is situated off the Phoenix-Wickenburg Highway, at the corner of West Northern and North 63rd avenues. It has a large nondenominational chapel that seats up to 250 guests. Large windows provide the chapel with an abundance of natural light. Our event space hosts catered receptions for up to 100 guests.

From a traditional funeral with a cemetery burial, to a simple cremation with a scattering at a meaningful place, to an elaborate celebration of life, we take care of every detail.

Personalized funerals and memorials

At West Resthaven Funeral home, we appreciate that every life is unique and every family is different. That’s why we take the time to listen and learn about your loved one. What was his favorite hobby? What did she do for fun? What made them smile? We’ll weave these elements together to create a meaningful and memorable tribute that celebrates and honors your loved one’s passions and personality.

Our team can find inspiration almost anywhere. Let’s host a memorial concert in honor of the avid live music fan. Or perhaps an outdoor celebration of life with scenic views at sunset for the special person who loved to hike. From flowers and food to music, decor and more, we handle it all. No detail is too small, no wish is out of reach.

See how we celebrate life.

Cremation in Glendale

Signature Dedication at Brevard Memorial Funeral Home & ParkThere are many options for cremation in Glendale—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, our sister cemetery, West Resthaven Park Cemetery, is among the prettiest in the area.

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.

WHV 2020 - Level 4We Honor Veterans

At West Resthaven Funeral Home and West Resthaven Park Cemetery, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As Level Four Founding Community Partners with We Honor Veterans, we are honored to serve our nation’s heroes and take this responsibility seriously. We host community events annually in honor of veterans and work closely with the Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion and Disabled American Veterans.

We also participate in the Dignity Memorial® Homeless Veterans Burial Program, founded on the belief that every veteran deserves a dignified and honorable burial. Through the program created in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, homeless and indigent veterans who have no family to claim them are identified and provided with proper military burials.

We can walk you through creating a veteran’s service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one and help you get the benefits you deserve.

West Resthaven Park Cemetery

Cemetery grounds with flat markers and floral arrangements at Resthaven Park Cemetery.Founded in 1947 in Glendale, Arizona, the 90-acre West Resthaven Park Cemetery is a peaceful final resting place and tranquil retreat for friends and family to remember.

The cemetery has a number of naturally soothing elements, including eucalyptus, sage, Mondale pine, mesquite and purple plum trees. The sweet aroma of honeysuckle, roses and oleander fills the air during a warm breeze. Vibrant purple and periwinkle blue vincas emerge during the spring and create beautiful spots for reflection.

Beautiful gardens and burial options

The cemetery comprises 32 numbered gardens and five named gardens. A walk down one of our winding paths reveals a range of burial options: in-ground burial, aboveground entombment, as well as many cremation choices. There are two outdoor mausoleum complexes, columbaria, cremation niches and benches, and private and semiprivate estates.

Special feature of an angel statue at Resthaven Park Cemetery. A walkway lined by palms leads to a private mausoleum in the Garden of Eternal Rest. The exclusive Desert Dove Estates offers a modern rocky landscape with options for in-ground burial as well as cremation benches. In a garden called Our Lady of Guadalupe, rose bushes flank the walkway to the center, where a statue of the lady sits. The Lady of La Vang is a Vietnamese garden and exclusive to members of Glendale's Vietnamese Martyrs Parish.

The cremation garden has a tiered water fountain and a trellis covered in ivy. Jets create gentle babbling sounds, and crystal clear water flows down a stream bed lined with rock. This garden also has cremation benches, niches and posts.

In addition, the program offers extended counseling services to family members, as well as the opportunity to create an internet tribute as a loving memorial.

During the year, we hold a number of events open to the public.

A Memorial Day service honors those who have given their lives in service to our country. More than 350 people attend the annual event, which includes moving speakers, live music, flyovers by vintage WWII planes and a picnic lunch. We place more than 4,500 American flags throughout the cemetery prior to the service, thanks to members of local scouts troops, the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps and the American Legion.

During the first week of November, we host a popular Día de los Muertos celebration. This lively event celebrates Mexican culture and supports the spiritual journeys of loved ones lost. We hand out traditional Mexican chocolates and loaves of bread and conclude the day’s festivities with an evening mass.

Guests of our December Night of Remembrance enjoy sweet treats and seasonal music, and they hang ornaments with the names and photos of their loved ones on our holiday tree and light candles in their honor. Religious leaders are present at the event and help attendees gain a sense of peace and healing.
