Discover an ideal resting place
Upon entering our memorial park, our chapel mausoleum warmly welcomes you with ample seating for committal services. Inside, our stone mausoleum provides a timeless alternative to traditional in-ground burial with climate-controlled spaces and classic engraving on the face of each stone. There are also available adjacent spaces keep family members together inside one single monument.
Outside, tree-lined walkways border our traditional burial gardens. We take pride in the meticulous care of each lawn, with greenery and flowers for the ones you love. Stone statues and art features can be found throughout the park, with colorful flowers lending to hopeful feelings. We offer family estates with optional gates or hedged walls to create the unique reassurance of a single gathering place for future generations to return in reflection.

Our historic cemetery in Richmond
Internationally 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.
