A modern Little Rock funeral home

Lobby at Rest Hills Funeral HomeIn the last few years, Griffin Leggett Rest Hills Funeral Home has been renovated and transformed to reflect the desires of today’s families for contemporary funeral services and complementary offerings. Clean lines, white marble and silver walls provide a soothing backdrop for planning a funeral and hosting friends and family. Whether you prefer a large, themed event or a small, intimate gathering, we have both the spaces for and the team who can arrange a personalized memorial for your loved one.

The remodeled funeral chapel has flexible seating for up to 150 and a new sound system. It also includes flat-screen TVs for multimedia tributes. Our baby grand piano is available for those who wish to use it. A bistro-style reception room with high-top tables is perfect for intimate gatherings like a breakfast after a service or cake and coffee during a visitation. The larger community room has a catering kitchen and holds up to a dozen 12 round tables with chairs for a larger gathering, such as a barbecue dinner buffet or a memorial game night—and we are happy to arrange food and drinks. Three televisions are available to play memorial videos, photo slideshows, funny videos and more.

Let’s celebrate life

Our goal is to celebrate life like no other. Whether you prefer a traditional funeral or a Life Well Celebrated ® event, our professional and caring team is committed to creating a fitting tribute. We can help you find inspiration almost anywhere—in a favorite song, hobby or even an iconic style—and turn that inspiration into a memorial filled with thoughtful and meaningful details.

At Griffin Leggett Rest Hills, we have created and hosted many themed events. Was she an avid gardener? We’ll festoon our reception space with flowers and give guests hand-painted watering cans to take home. Was he passionate about his annual Hawaiian vacations. We’ll fill the chapel with sand and greet every guest with a lei. We’ll pitch tents out front for an avid camper or arrange a sparkler-filled send-off for someone born on the Fourth of July. The possibilities are virtually endless. Start with a story and we’ll take it from there.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and the different memorial and burial choices. From a direct cremation without a service to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand the variations in this increasingly common decision. If you wish, cremated remains can be memorialized at Rest Hills Memorial Park.

Rest Hills Memorial Park

Water feature at Rest Hills Memorial ParkLocated on a beautiful, sloping landscape, Rest Hills Memorial Park makes for a dignified and peaceful final resting place. The 111-acre cemetery has 28 meticulously maintained gardens, peaceful lakes and many shady trees, including pines and oaks. Throughout the grounds, you'll find regal statues symbolizing the promise of life.

Wide range of burial options

Mausoleum at Rest Hills Memorial ParkRest Hills Memorial Park provides a variety of burial and cremation options. Unlike many Little Rock cemeteries, we offer upright monuments in addition to flat markers for traditional burial. For families choosing cremation, we have mausoleum niches as well as cremation benches and boulders throughout the cemetery grounds. We also offer entombment in community mausoleums and private mausoleums.


Cemetery grounds at Rest Hills Memorial ParkOur newest cemetery development, aptly named Hilltop, is located in the middle of the cemetery atop a hill. This secluded, peaceful space offers private mausoleums and is among the more picturesque spots in our memorial park, with plenty of room for expansion in years to come.

The Rest Hills therapy dog

All of our team members at Griffin Leggett Rest Hills Funeral Home and Rest Hills Memorial Park provide families with comfort and support, but there is a member of our team who is especially gifted at making people feel at ease: Hazel. With 4 legs, a perpetually wagging tail and a big heart, Hazel is our certified therapy dog. Hazel joined Griffin Leggett Rest Hills Funeral Home in September 2016. A rescued shepherd/hound mix, she was trained by prison inmates through the Paws in Prison program. After completing the program, Hazel was adopted by our general manager and went through therapy dog training with Therapy Dogs International.

You can find Hazel at Rest Hills every day, either in our offices or in meetings with families. If you’re interested in meeting Hazel, please tell a team member and we will be glad to introduce you. Whether you’re making funeral arrangements in advance or have an immediate need for our services, Hazel is here for you, providing the kind of unconditional love that only a dog can.

The Griffin Leggett family of funeral homes and cemeteries

Griffin Leggett Rest Hills Funeral Home and Rest Hills Memorial Park are part of the Griffin Leggett family of funeral homes and memorial parks, which, in addition to North Little Rock, has locations in Conway, Little Rock and Alexander.

Founded by J. Harry Leggett Sr. and Frank and Paul Griffin in a 2-story apartment building on West Capitol Avenue in Little Rock, the Griffin Leggett funeral business began in 1936. A pioneering team, the men were the 1st in the Little Rock area to promote burial insurance and their funeral home business grew quickly to be the largest in Arkansas.

In 1970, Harry Leggett Jr. took over the family business and began acquiring more funeral homes and cemeteries in the Little Rock area.

Today, we are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, North America’s largest provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services.

Throughout our history, we have remained committed to upholding the legacy of our founders while evolving with the diverse and changing needs of the Arkansas community. By honoring this legacy, we will continue to serve North Little Rock families for generations to come.
