Floral Hills Funeral Home and Cemetery

Choosing a funeral home or cemetery can be an overwhelming decision, especially at an emotional time. That's why it is important to know that there really is a difference. Floral Hills Cemetery was founded in 1929, and the funeral home was added in 1954, making Floral Hills Funeral Home and Cemetery the first funeral home/cemetery combination facility in Kansas City. This means families have the added convenience of making all arrangements from one beautiful location. Today, the staff continues to provide families with quality, compassionate care.

At Floral Hills Funeral Home & Cemetery, we offer complete funeral services and cemetery options for all faiths. We are proud to also offer aftercare services including community bereavement programs. Our spacious 14,000-square-foot funeral home includes four visitation rooms, two arrangement rooms and a chapel that can accommodate 150 guests. Burial options include traditional ground burial, mausoleum entombment, cremation niches and scattering gardens. Fifteen different statues/monuments are located throughout the cemetery on 130 acres of ground, and our Memorial Day flag display is the largest in the United States. Ample parking is also available to accommodate friends and family.

Families can be assured that they will receive personalized, individual attention when making arrangements with Floral Hills Funeral Home and Cemetery. Our professional and caring staff members understand that the loss of a loved one is a very personal experience, and are here to help. At Floral Hills, we believe that every life is unique, and every funeral should be too. We celebrate life. And for those who like to plan ahead, we offer The Simplicity Plan® prearrangement program—an easy way to handle an important responsibility.
