Missouri Cemeteries

Missouri is one of our nation's heartland states, so it's no wonder that so many people fall in love with it. Many people also choose it as a final resting place. Whether you have family in Missouri or simply are fond of the state itself, you'll find numerous options when choosing an MO cemetery.

Choosing a Cemetery in Missouri

From Kansas City to the Springfield area, Missouri cemeteries offer serene settings. Your choice will likely come down to personal opinion on aesthetic, or even more simply, how close it is to visiting family.

Here’s an amazing anecdote for you: on his last visit to Kansas City, President Theodore Roosevelt remarked that the grounds of Forest Hill & Calvary Cemetery had the finest collection of trees he had ever seen. How’s that for a ringing endorsement of a final cemetery choice?

If you live closer to Springfield, Rivermonte Gardens is known as the cemetery on the hill and features an inspirational Garden of Crosses. And White Chapel Memorial Gardens, also in Springfield, has a veteran's garden. Animal lovers, on the other hand, will want to know that Highland Sacred Gardens in Sedalia has a pet cemetery.
