History & Staff

Our Story

Learn the legacy

We've learned a lot about caring for families over the years. We realize that we aren't just caring for a loved one, but the entire family. People come to us during their most difficult times, and we respond with kindness, understanding and expertise. Our goal is to make everyone feel at home as we work with them to create a memorable service in honor of a beautiful life.

Our humble beginnings

Since Sunset Lawn Chapel of the Chime's modest beginning as Grant Memorial Lawn in 1938, we understand the significance of the role we play in helping families find peace during some of their darkest times. Our early days saw us mostly caring for young soldiers, who had been fighting in WWII. From this, we gained a deep understanding for honoring every life in a unique and special way. 

Splendor for acres

We have grown to encompass more cemetery space than any facility in the Sacramento region. Our park provides an onsite funeral home and chapel, seven mausoleums, 11 acres for honoring cremated remains and 25 beautiful gardens. Some of these gardens are dedicated exclusively to clients with ethnic, cultural, religious or military affiliations.

The importance of each life

We take great pride in fulfilling the individual needs of families from the diverse communities we serve. Our mission has always been to develop a level of service that recognizes the importance of each life lived. At Sunset Lawn, we care for families when they need it the most.
