Sunset Memorial Park
Located on Austin Highway in San Antonio's Alamo Heights neighborhood and covering approximately 75 acres, Sunset Memorial Park is an expertly manicured cemetery with a diverse range of burial options.
The memorial park has 3 mausoleums, 1 of which includes a chapel for committal services. We offer built-to-suit private estates along with cremation gardens, niches, cenotaphs and various ground-burial options.
An outdoor gazebo and outdoor pavilion in the cemetery are suitable for memorial services and serve as places of quiet reflection.
Various well-known individuals have been laid to rest at Sunset Memorial Park, including musicians Leon Roger Payne and Doug Sahm; Del Baker, who played for the Detroit Tigers baseball team from 1914 to 1916, served as the Tigers’s manager and coach, and coached the Boston Red Sox; and sculptor Pompeo Coppini, who created several famous sculptures and busts of native Texans.
Sunset Memorial Park was established in 1928. Sunset Funeral Home opened in 1974, with a chapel and on-site crematory for convenience.
In 1981, Sunset Funeral Home and Sunset Memorial Park joined the Dignity Memorial® network, the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers in North America.
As we grow and evolve, we remain committed to providing the same personal and professional service that the community of San Antonio and Bexar County have come to expect.
Sunset Funeral Home and Sunset Memorial Park are just 1.3 miles from Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery. The funeral home can coordinate with Fort Sam Houston or a veteran can be memorialized at our cemetery. The Field of Honor is reserved for members of the United States armed forces and includes a memorial that honors the service and sacrifice of veterans. For many veterans funerals, we collaborate with the Veterans of Foreign Wars to organize a traditional 3-volley salute.
