An inclusive Kansas City funeral home
Mt. Moriah, Newcomer and Freeman Funeral Home is a non-denominational funeral home. We work with people of all walks of life to incorporate family traditions, religious rites and cultural considerations into unique and personalized services. We believe each funeral or memorial service should be as special as the person it celebrates.
The quiet charm of the funeral home is enhanced by the elegance of crystal chandeliers imported from Holland and Spain. Two funeral home chapels accommodate a variety of styles and sizes of funerals and memorial services.
The largest chapel is also the most traditional. It's called Main Chapel and it has pews that seat up to 200 guests. The Reception Chapel seats up to 100 guests and was recently remodeled for more flexible use. Freestanding chairs and contemporary decor allow for various layouts to accommodate both formal and informal services, as well as catered events. In either the Main Chapel and Reception Chapel, we are happy to incorporate virtually any accents to customize a service.
A 3rd chapel is located in Mount Moriah Cemetery South's Temple Mausoleum. This chapel has pews that seat up to 80 guests for committal services.

Mount Moriah Cemetery South
Mount Moriah Cemetery South is a sprawling 130-acre cemetery that opened in 1922 as a Masonic cemetery. Thirty acres are still undeveloped. The rolling green grounds feature 2 lakes: 1 that sits among family estates and another that remains on our undeveloped acreage. In the northwest corner of the cemetery, an obelisk features a time capsule and scroll listing the founding fathers of Mount Moriah.
Mount Moriah Cemetery South offers a range of burial options, including traditional ground burials, lawn crypts, indoor and outdoor mausoleums and a cremation garden. We also offer family estates and private individual mausoleums. Most of the grave markers in the cemetery are flush designs. Upright monuments are found only in the family estates and as features in a select few of our gardens.
Special cemetery sections
Mount Moriah Cemetery South features a veterans garden, several Jewish sections and a Muslim section. One of the Jewish sections is reserved for members of Beth Torah and the New Reform Temple; the other section is for anyone of the Jewish faith.
Our cemetery also features the original bell tower that filled the air with music over the past century. Although it's no longer operational, the bell tower remains a beautiful reminder of the rich history of our Kansas City cemetery.
Masonic and community involvement
Mount Moriah Cemetery South is a Masonic-enshrined cemetery and an integral resource for several Masonic groups in the Kansas City area. One of the more prominent features of the cemetery is the Temple Mausoleum, completed in 1925. Inside the Temple Mausoleum, the sacred Temple Room is 1 of the few Mason-sanctioned temple rooms in the United States. It is still used for meetings, ceremonies and inductions.
The cemetery also hosts several events at Mount Moriah for the larger Kansas City community and families we have served throughout the years. We host a yearly Mother’s Day event, Memorial Day event and a Holiday Remembrance. We also work with a local church each year for an Easter service.
