Westlawn-Hillcrest Funeral Home and Memorial Park

Since 1910 Westlawn-Hillcrest Memorial Park has had a tradition of providing timeless, elegant memorialization for the people of Greater Omaha. It is the only location in the Omaha area that has a funeral home, cemetery and crematory at one convenient location. The Singing Tower, the most prominent feature of the cemetery, was built in 1931, and is modeled after the famous Bok Tower in Lake Wales, Florida. Families have many choices at this beautiful 180-acre park, including mausoleum entombment, lawn crypts, traditional ground burial and cremation options. Westlawn-Hillcrest Funeral Home opened on the cemetery grounds in 1998, and is the first and only funeral home/cemetery/crematory combination in Omaha. This 20,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art funeral home features three staterooms, a chapel with seating for 250, a coffee lounge, arrangement offices and a merchandise selection room. The Center of Hope and Healing facility at Westlawn-Hillcrest is used by many grief groups, including the Omaha Grief Support Network, to offer counseling and comfort to those who have recently lost a loved one. Families are welcome to use the facility for receptions and gatherings after funeral and burial services. At Westlawn-Hillcrest Memorial Park and Funeral Home, we believe that every life is unique, and every funeral should be too. We celebrate life. Westlawn-Hillcrest also offers The Simplicity Plan® prearrangement program, an easy way to handle an important family responsibility. Westlawn-Hillcrest proudly serves all faiths and all cemeteries.
