Our historic cemetery in Richmond

Private/semi private estates at Westhampton Memorial & Cremation ParkInternationally known landscape architect, Carlisle C. Butler, founded Westhampton Memorial Park in September 1954. Born in Richmond and a lifelong resident of the area, Carlisle was assisted at Westhampton Memorial Park by his wife, Doris Newton Butler.

The Butler family created a master plan for the park, which was believed to be unparalleled in cemetery history at the time: the creation and development of beautiful memorial gardens that depicted the history of the Christian faith in chronological order, beginning with the Bible in the Garden of the Word. The story these gardens tell lives on today as a shrine of perpetual loveliness dedicated to the memory of loved ones passed. Each feature was carved from rock sourced in the same quarry Michelangelo used to carve his famous statue of David.

While we have a rich history of serving Christian families, we are happy and honored to serve families from all backgrounds and faith traditions with our trademark Virginia hospitality. You're always welcome at Westhampton Memorial Park.

"My husband & I pre-arranged our funerals at Woody's. That was the smartest decision we could have made. When my husband lost his battle with cancer I was so exhausted & sad from the last couple years of hospitals & hospice, I know I couldn't have made the right decisions at that time. The whole wonderful team surrounded me with compassion & help. M
