Since 1910, Westlawn-Hillcrest Memorial Park has provided elegant burial and memorial options for the people of Greater Omaha. Families have many interment choices at this beautiful cemetery, including the Westlawn Mausoleum. Built between 1913 and 1915, the Classic Revival and Greco-Roman building was designed by the same architect who drafted the plans for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
On May 30, 1929, the Heroism Memorial was erected at the cemetery in honor of 2 young boys who saved their mother from a fire. Omaha schoolchildren collected pennies to pay for the monument.
Westlawn-Hillcrest Funeral Home opened on the cemetery property in 1998. The funeral home and cemetery are sister locations, which allow you the convenience of handling all your funeral, cremation and burial needs.
Westlawn-Hillcrest Memorial Park cemetery
Spread over 180 acres, the cemetery features gardens with flat markers and fountains. Interment choices at Westlawn-Hillcrest Memorial Park include traditional ground burial, lawn crypts, mausoleum entombment and also cremation options, such as niche and burial placements.
Built in the Art Deco style in 1931, the Singing Tower is modeled after Bok Tower in Lake Wales, Florida. The tower sits atop a landscaped hill, on the highest elevation point in town, providing sweeping views of Omaha. Surrounded by oak and maple trees, the park-like location is ideal for the cemetery’s 8-phase cremation garden, complete with waterfall and reflection pond.
Singing Tower’s bells and chimes play music every day from 8am to 6pm, but it also can be connected to a smart device or MP3 player to play personal music during a committal service.
Garden of Valor
The cemetery opened the Garden of Valor in 2009 as a tribute to all branches of the military. The garden is surrounded by cremation benches and emblems honoring the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard.
Ongoing maintenance of the cemetery property is a top priority. We constantly strive to make sure the grounds are well appointed and maintained. Floral tributes are beautiful additions to the memorial park and convey sentiments of love and sympathy. Westlawn-Hillcrest offers a range of floral placement plans that let you choose the types of flowers and the timing of placement, making it easy for you to honor Mother's Day, Father's Day, a birthday or every single Tuesday.
Photos convey a lot but we welcome you to see the cemetery for yourself. Visit whenever you'd like or call to set up a guided tour. We're happy to show you around.
