A peaceful Phoenix-area funeral home
Located off North Del Webb Road behind St. Clement of Rome Catholic Church and Fountain of Life Lutheran Church, Sunland Mortuary & Cremation Center has no direct frontage or road exposure. This ensures a quiet setting that's convenient to Phoenix but seemingly far away.
Once you are at the funeral home, you have choices when it comes to chapels, so you can find the space that best fits your needs. The funeral home has 2 chapels (Lakeside and Remembrance); the cemetery mausoleum also has a chapel (Chapel of Peace).
Lakeside Chapel seats around 120 guests and features views of the property's 2-acre lake. Lakeside Chapel features white exposed-brick walls and has a modern, open sensibility. Windows on each side of the chapel let natural light stream in.
Remembrance Chapel seats up to 12 guests for more intimate gatherings. This cozy atmosphere is great for those who wish to keep things simple.

Beautiful gardens and burial options
Our manicured gardens provide a peaceful location for family and friends to remember loved ones. A walk down 1 of our winding paths reveals a range of interment options for in-ground burial, as well as 7 mausoleums, columbaria, crypts, ossuaries, cremation niches and benches, private and semiprivate estates and cremation scattering gardens.
Of 11 distinct gardens at Sunland Memorial Park, several are dedicated to specific religions or cultures. Prayer II is resting place for both Conservative and Reform members of Jewish congregations. A geniza in this section provides for the proper disposal of religious artifacts and texts. The Garden of Valor is dedicated to veterans.
One of our more exclusive sections is located by the lake and includes lawn crypts, cremation gardens, private and semiprivate estates, and 3 mausoleums. Each spring, Indian hawthorn and jacarandas produce vibrant, fragrant blossoms, adding seasonal beauty to this area.
Chapel of Peace
Located in the cemetery's Mausoleum of Peace, Chapel of Peace seats up to 300 guests and is a traditional space for holding committal services.
On a wall of the Mausoleum of Peace, which is located on the cemetery's east side, you'll find one of the larger mosaic art pieces in the United States. Its intricate tile work depicts soaring doves as a symbol of freedom.

As a whole-family cemetery, Sunland Memorial Park has dedicated a 2-acre garden to furred and feathered friends. Sunland Pet Rest Cemetery provides a place to memorialize the lives of loyal companions. Whether you choose a traditional burial or cremation burial for your beloved animal, you can trust that we will show the same care and compassion as we give to every life we honor.

We Honor Veterans
At Sunland Memorial Park, Mortuary & Cremation Center, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Four Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, we are honored to serve our nation’s heroes and take this responsibility seriously. We have taken steps to ensure our staff is knowledgeable of all the benefits available to military veterans and their families.
In addition, we host community events annually in honor of our veterans and work closely with local veterans organizations. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran’s memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.
The Homeless Veterans Burial Program was founded in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, local medical examiners, coroners, veterans advocates, and veterans organizations on the belief that every veteran deserves a dignified and honorable burial. Through the program, homeless and indigent veterans who have no family to claim them are identified and provided with proper military burials.
Honoring public servants
Sunland Mortuary & Cremation Center and Sunland Memorial Park support those who dedicate their careers to safeguarding Phoenix and surrounding areas.
The Public Servants Program recognizes the courage and selflessness of career and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel. Through the program we offer dignified and honorable tributes, at no cost, for those who fall in the line of duty. In addition, the program offers counseling services to family members, as well as the opportunity to create an internet tribute as a loving memorial.
Community Events - Supporting Phoenix
Sunland Mortuary & Cremation Center and Sunland Memorial Park invite all families in the Phoenix area to join us for our special events.
A Memorial Day service honors those who gave their lives in service to our country. Members from the Northwest Valley Veterans Association, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion help us host this popular event, typically attended by more than 500 people. Attendees are treated to a picnic lunch, live brass band and flyovers by the Falcon Warbirds. More than 1,500 American flags are placed on the graves of service members prior to service, thanks to local Boy Scouts troops.
No matter your religion, culture or belief, we know that December holidays can be a particularly emotional time for families who have lost loved ones. During our nondenominational Night of Remembrance, we celebrate the lives of those lost throughout the year. Guests enjoy sweet treats and seasonal music, and hang ornaments with the names and photos of loved ones on our tree and light candles in their honor. Community leaders from many religious doctrines join to provide their support.
The funeral home and cemetery teams are involved in many local and national organizations, such as the Northwest Valley Veterans Association, Sun City Rotary and American Diabetes Association.
We also extend an open invitation to anyone grieving the loss of a loved one to our grief support group. The group meets weekly and has been recognized for its effort to combat suicide among the elderly following loss.
