Chapel for all people
We are non-denominational and happy to work with all faiths, backgrounds and cultures. Though we do have our own cemetery, we are also able to coordinate with any cemetery you choose. We recently remodeled our chapel to reflect the beauty of the surrounding cemetery. Designed as an open space with high ceilings, it is flooded with natural light.
The chapel seats roughly 100 people and features windows and outdoor benches that overlook the scenic cemetery grounds. Recent improvements allow us to be more adaptable and versatile for the diverse needs of today’s families, including flexible seating. There is also a 30-foot rock wall inside of the chapel, giving it a distinct natural flare.
Diversity is important to us
Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Mortuary serves the unique and diverse needs of the many cultures in the beautiful melting pot of Los Angeles. Our funeral home team is experienced in funerals, cremations and memorials for those of all faiths and backgrounds. We handle services for people of all religious convictions, including Jewish, Christian, non-religious and other beliefs.
At Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Mortuary, we are here to accommodate and create the personalized services you deserve. No two lives are the same, and we believe a final service should properly reflect the uniqueness of a person.
A funeral home in the heart of Westwood Village
Located in the heart of the city, with an entrance right off Glendon Avenue, we’re 2 miles from Santa Monica and 1 mile from Beverly Hills. Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Mortuary serves the families of Westwood Village, Los Angeles, Hollywood, Brentwood, Beverly Hills, UCLA, West Los Angeles and the surrounding communities.
Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Mortuary and Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park have been pillars of the Greater Los Angeles community for more than 100 years. Officially established in the state of California in 1905 under the name Sunset Cemetery, the earliest on-site burials date back to the 1880s. In 1926, the cemetery was renamed Westwood Memorial Park. During this time, we began serving the growing nearby community of UCLA. In 1952, our first mausoleum was built on the grounds—now there are 10 beautiful mausoleums throughout the park.
Construction of the chapel
In 1961, the chapel was built on the south side of the cemetery property. This chapel has a 30-foot white quartz wall, high ceilings and a distinctly open design that allows for plenty of natural light. The chapel can seat more than 100 people and accommodates flexible seating options.
Quality service today and tomorrow
In 1991, the funeral home and cemetery both joined the Dignity Memorial® network, which is the largest network of funeral, cremation and burial service providers in North America. Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Mortuary and Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park were honored in 2002 by The Cultural Heritage Commission of the City of Los Angeles. We were designated as Historical-Cultural Monument No. 731.
Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park
Our lush and tranquil cemetery is located on 2.5 acres in Los Angeles. The grounds provide a quiet, picturesque place for people to remember their loved ones. In the mornings, an unmistakable tranquility makes it easy to get lost in nature’s beauty with dew dripping from the leaves underneath the California skies. The grounds are specifically designed to achieve this peaceful, park-like retreat within the city limits.
At Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park, we pride ourselves on being a peaceful retreat with beautiful flowers and trees in a location that is conveniently located near Westwood Village, Hollywood, Brentwood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, UCLA, West Los Angeles and the surrounding Greater Los Angeles areas. At the entrance to our grounds, there are 2 large wrought-iron gates. The space is so unassuming and enjoyable that many people come just to enjoy the outdoors and relax in the peaceful surroundings.
At Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park, we offer cemetery and burial services of all kinds. Our mission is to provide the personalized memorialization that people deserve, so we strive to provide a variety of options: mausoleums, indoor crypts, private bench estates, columbaria, cremation gardens and traditional ground burial spaces. We invite you to visit us to see the cemetery for yourself. If you would like a tour of our grounds, please contact one of our family service counselors.
Veteran funerals and community service
We are honored to support military families and veterans. Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Mortuary and Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park are also proud to participate in the Dignity Memorial® Homeless Veterans Burial Program (HVBP). Founded on the belief that every veteran deserves a dignified and honorable burial, the HVBP is a cooperative effort with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, local medical examiners, coroners, veterans advocates and veterans organizations. Through the HVBP, homeless and indigent veterans who have no family to claim them are identified and provided with proper military burials.
Also, each Memorial Day, we place miniature American flags on the graves of veterans. On Easter, we conduct a sunrise service for our Christian families.
Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Mortuary and Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park strongly believe in being active members of the community, and we are involved with the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce.
