Arch L. Heady at Resthaven and Resthaven Memorial Park have been supporting the people of Louisville for generations. The funeral home is conveniently located southeast of downtown Louisville. We happily serve people of all cultures, backgrounds and faiths. Together, the funeral home and cemetery allow people to handle all their choices around funeral, cremation and burial services.

Timeless and traditional Louisville funeral home

Chapel at Arch L. Heady at ResthavenOur elegant funeral home was built in 1991. From the moment you walk in, you are welcomed here.

Timeless decor, including calming and cool colors, tall ceilings and Southern flare, surround you. A large fountain with bench seating in front of the funeral home provides an outdoor space to sit and reflect.

With pew seating for 150 guests, high ceilings and a large altar, our chapel is very traditional. We have a beautiful, large lobby directly outside the chapel, which is often used by families for serving refreshments, providing additional seating or displaying personal mementos.

We have 3 visitation rooms: Farmington, Breckinridge and Heritage. All of these spaces are similar in size, offering a warm environment, nice lighting and updated technology for family videos, music or slideshows. All 3 rooms comfortably accommodate 50-60 people and have direct access to a family lounge/coffee area.

The Celebration Room

The Celebration Room is a newly renovated space for memorial services, visitations or catered receptions. This room features warmer tones, photos of Louisville attractions and an updated sound system.

It also has a 55-inch television for picture and video slideshows. For those interested in hosting an event with cocktails, we can arrange for a bartender to serve your guests at the large wooden bar. We also have full catering capabilities. We are glad to coordinate anything from a breakfast buffet to a complete sit-down dinner.

Personalized funeral services

All of our services are designed to help you through one of the more personal and challenging stages of life. We understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are committed to providing compassionate, professional and personal care.

Over the years, we have designed some very touching celebration of life ceremonies. For instance, when coordinating the funeral details for a gentleman who was an avid traveler, we set up a room with a beach and cruise ship theme. We've also created a beautiful garden in a visitation room for a woman who loved English gardens.

From dove, butterfly and balloon releases to arranging for a horse-drawn carriage from a nearby farm, it is our promise to work with you to create a funeral or memorial service as unique as your loved one.

Kentucky Heritage Garden

The newest section of Resthaven Memorial Park is the unique Kentucky Heritage Garden. A beautiful tribute to the traditions of bluegrass, this area features a tranquil setting designed for peaceful reflection. Close up view of a horse statue at Resthaven Memorial Park.

Located toward the front of the cemetery property, this garden honors the rich horse-racing tradition of the region. Strolling down the promenade toward the classic Kentucky Heritage Pavilion is like passing through decades of Kentucky thoroughbred tradition. You’ll notice polished marble markers displaying the names of the most revered people in horse racing.

The centerpiece of Kentucky Heritage Garden is a large metal statue of a thoroughbred in midstride, mane flowing and muscles straining toward a prize. Four cremation benches are found near this wonderful sculpture.

The garden features both traditional flat markers and raised monument sites. A tiered stonewall creates a sweeping arc behind the pavilion, cradling a row of private paddock estates and monuments. Between the paddock estates and the pavilion, pillow monument lots lie neatly in rows.

Other Kentucky Heritage Garden memorialization options include hedged estates, 8 polished marble benches (2 on each side of the pavilion) and 6 build-to-suit sites at the front corners of the garden.

"Having lost my mother in 2019 and now my father in 2020, I've dealt with numerous personnel at Arch L Heady and have been impressed with everyone I have encountered. They are a very caring group of individuals and made this very difficult time easier for me to handle. I cannot thank them enough for the care and support they provided. Thank you so much for all you do!"

"Our family has always gone to Arch L. Heady with the loss of someone. They have always been very caring, attentive, accommodating people and even give suggestions to help you decide arrangements without any sales pressure. They are there for YOU. If you need something changed at the last minute, and there is anyway possible, the staff will do all that they can to make it happen. And after all that and grave site services, we returned to get flowers and pictures together and the staff had already had it on a cart to be easily taken to our cars to divide up without coming 'in and out' many times. Plus a Dignity bag with all the funeral accessories, (memorial cards, bookmarks and guest book). As many funerals I have attended in my life - I have never seen any funeral home help make your grieving as pleasant and accommodating by assisting you with a cart, so that you may get home quicker to be with your family. I cannot say enough to express how that small gesture to them, meant the world to our family. I would highly recommend Arch L. Heady at Resthaven (pre-planning, actual burial, cremation, or flowers) for any of your needs."
