Funeral & Cremation Services
In 1962, we began as an independent cemetery on farmland in Cedar Hill, Missouri known as Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.
By 1968, Chapel Hill Mortuary began operating at this same location in Cedar Hill, representing the relocation of the
original Brimmer Funeral Home from downtown House Springs, MO. CHERISH.org Grief Support.
In 2010, we began operating Oak Hill Cemetery in Kirkwood, Missouri which has an extraordinary history dating to 1835.
At this same time, we began operating the funeral home on-site at this Kirkwood location which represented
the original funeral operations of Pfitzinger Funeral Home, from downtown Kirkwood, Missouri.
By 2014, we purchased both the cemetery and funeral home operations at this Kirkwood location.
In 2016, we purchased a very prominent cemetery in Bonne Terre, Missouri known as St. Francois Memorial Park
and re-opened a funeral operation at this location, as well.
Today, we retain all of the history and records while operating of each of these three (3) cemeteries.
Each cemetery has a well funded and audited Endowed Care Trust with the State of Missouri.
The funeral homes are operated under the name of Chapel Hill Mortuary at each of these locations.
