History

In 1929, Dr. L. E. Faris established Floral Hills Cemetery as a garden-type cemetery, a new concept at the time. Dr. Faris served as the cemetery's president until his death in 1952.

Floral Hills Funeral Home was added to the cemetery property in 1954, creating the 1st sister locations of funeral home and cemetery on the same property in Kansas City.

Over the years, many areas of the funeral home have been renovated, including a recent update that included new flooring and audio/visual equipment, keeping the facility both attractive and modern.

Today, Floral Hills Funeral Home and Floral Hills Cemetery are members of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

Floral Hills Cemetery

Covering approximately 130 park-like acres, Floral Hills Cemetery is a picturesque final resting place. It includes 15 statues throughout the property and several special memorial structures. We are a non-denominational memorial park, serving the Kansas City community with personal, compassionate care. Our team of experienced professionals is mindful of every need, respectful of every wish and watchful of every detail. We understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and are committed to providing caring, professional and personal service.

Range of burial options

Mausoleum at Floral Hills CemeteryFloral Hills Cemetery offers standard ground burial options, memorial and cremation benches, mausoleums, private family estates and other permanent memorialization options. The funeral home building also includes spacious, climate-controlled columbaria with glass-front niches and a calming water feature.

One of our community mausoleums is topped with a bell tower adorned with a beautiful cross. Another community mausoleum on the cemetery property features 3 crosses embedded in one of the walls. The grounds also include the Freedom Memorial, a 4-winged granite structure with bronze plaques that include the names of local veterans.

Community and military

In addition to the funeral services that we provide to Kansas City families, we also invite the community to Floral Hills Funeral Home and Floral Hills Cemetery throughout the year. We host a Memorial Day ceremony in May as well as a holiday memorial service every December. These traditions allow us to bring families together to remember, reflect and honor their loved ones in a beautiful community setting.

Veterans section at Floral Hills Funeral Home For Memorial Day, we host a service with a speaker, brass band, singer and placing-of-the-wreath ceremony. Throughout the entire weekend, we display nearly 1,500 American flags in the Avenue of Flags, honoring those who have served our country. The Avenue of Flags, which spans the length of the cemetery, is a beautiful tribute that the community continues to enjoy every year.

Both the funeral home and cemetery also participate in efforts such as the We Honor Veterans program and the Dignity Memorial® Public Servants Program.

"As someone who has never lost a close loved one before, nor someone who's ever had to plan a funeral… I went into my meeting so sad, scared, and lost. I had no idea what to expect, how much money it would cost, nor what all I had to do. Throughout the planning process, every question I had was answered. Every worry I had was able to be calmed. All of the fears of my dads wishes not being carried out, we're completely squashed when my funeral director, D made sure the arrangements aligned with what he wanted. The day of my dads service I was a basket case… when I arrived, the room was perfectly set. The slideshow was playing, and my music of choice accompanied the video. My dad looked so handsome & at peace. Exactly how I wanted him to look. We came in with memorabilia to set up, and the staff lended their hands with helping make sure everything was perfectly set before guests arrived. (I even forgot our guest book and D made sure to have an extra available for us to use! ❤️) Patrick was such a help with the graveside service & answered all the questions I had for him. Even following up with me after the service to make sure everything went as we would have hoped, which it did. My experience with Newcomers Floral Hills was better than I ever expected. I am thankful to everyone who helped make my dads service, one to remember."

"We were at another funeral home in Kansas City that had booked our service and the next day they said they were overbooked for the days and times we had previously been promised. I immediately called Floral Hills. We received exceptional care and compassion the minute I called and spoke with the Funeral Director. She quickly assured me that she would make our dates and times work. She truly gave us peace and comfort during one of the most difficult times for our family. The service was beautiful, the chapel is lovely and we highly recommend Floral Hills."
