Longview 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. Longview Cemetery has been serving families of South Kansas City since 1964. Longview Funeral Home opened its doors in 1986, on the grounds of Longview Cemetery. Today, we continue to provide families with quality, compassionate care, and this unique funeral home/cemetery combination offers the convenience of making all arrangements from one central location.

At Longview Funeral Home and Cemetery, we offer complete funeral services and burial options in a unique and tranquil setting. The funeral home, which encompasses 3,000 square feet, is nestled on a hillside overlooking Longview Lake and is bordered by tree-filled parks, providing a comforting atmosphere for bereaved families. The chapel seats 200 people, and there are two arrangement rooms and two visitation rooms. Our cemetery features a variety of interment options including traditional ground burial, lawn crypts and special columbarium niches for cremated remains. We are also proud to honor veterans in our Beautitudes Veterans Section. Ample parking is available to accommodate guests.

Families can be assured that they will receive personalized, individual attention when making arrangements with Longview 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 Longview, we believe that every life is unique, and every funeral should be too. We celebrate life.
