Sunset Funeral Home and Cemetery has been providing funeral, cemetery and cremation services to the Minneapolis area since 1922. Throughout the years, we've maintained our commitment to our client families while responding to the changing needs of our community.
The cemetery borders Saint Paul and Minneapolis on 130 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. Since its beginnings, Sunset Memorial Park has been a full-service cemetery. We have a funeral chapel on site, allowing for cemetery and funeral arrangements to be taken care of simultaneously. The cemetery offers above-ground entombment, above-ground niche and columbarium arrangements, and traditional burial.
We're proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of more than 1,600 funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. We're committed to exceeding expectations and delivering a standard of service that is 100 percent guaranteed. When you choose a Dignity Memorial provider, you not only receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment, but also the value you deserve from the largest and most trusted network of funeral, cremation and memorialization services.
All of our services are designed to help families through one of the most personal and challenging stages of life. We understand losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we're committed to helping our client families with compassionate, professional and personal service.
We encourage you to contact us if you need immediate assistance, would like more information about our services, or if you would like a tour.
All of the park's buildings and memorials are uniformly constructed of Minnesota pearl pink granite. A magnificent administration building stands at the park's entryway. Halfway down the main mall, the Tower of Memories rises to a height of 75 feet. Within its belfry is a 25-tone set of Deagan chimes
At the western end of the main mall is Sunset Chapel Mausoleum. Completed in 1933, the mausoleum is full of architectural beauty: windows filled with beautiful stained glass, brass doors, four levels of interior walls made of Italian marble, and the original Kilgen pipe organ. The chapel's majestic reflection is mirrored in the waters of the Roman pool.
The park features two additional chapel mausoleums: the Chapel of Peace and the Chapel of Angels. Completed in 1999, the Chapel of Angels has one exterior wall dedicated to our public servants and veterans. The surrounding landscaping includes a pond with waterfalls surrounded by colorful, flowering hedges, providing a serene place for reflection. Inside, the Chapel of Angels is home to numerous glass-front niches, which provide a unique opportunity for families to personalize and remember their loved ones.
The newest addition to Sunset's grounds is our Garden of Eternal Peace, created under the direction of Feng Shui consultant Andrew Hong. Our vision for the Garden of Eternal Peace is to preserve and honor the esteemed traditions and unique heritage of the Asian communities in the Twin Cities. The Garden of Eternal Peace has unique plantings and landscaping, enhancing its spiritual quality and offering a tranquil place to reflect. The garden features custom lots and estates for private mausoleums, individual flat and raised monument areas, and numerous cremation options.
