About Us

burton family

From generation to generation, Burton has worked closely with one of the most respected national associations — Selected Independent Funeral Homes — to offer the highest level of professionalism to families and individuals of all walks of life, religions and financial circumstances.

You will find our staff to be compassionate, caring and knowledgeable and each of our four homes to be welcoming and comforting. We provide the perfect place for your family to honor and celebrate the life of your loved one. We are dedicated to providing the support and information you need whether making arrangements in advance or at the time of a loved one’s death.

We recognize that during a time of loss families and their friends need a place where they are nurtured and cared for.

Moreover, we continually update our facilities and services to better serve you. Burton has convenient all-faith chapels at each location and we offer on-site cremation so you know your loved one is treated with respect and care.

We also offer pet loss services, cemetery memorials, and Whispering Pines Cremation Gardens, a beautiful resting place designed especially for cremated remains.

Testimonials

Peter and Karen
We were impressed by our professionalism and kindness. Harry Weiner is a friend but he really helped my younger brother who was struggling after the funeral was over. I just wanted to say how pleased we were with Burton Funeral Home. It’s a hard time and it’s nice to know that your loved ones funeral is in capable hands. Thank you.

To the Burton Westlake Funeral Home Family
Thank you for doing that annual service of remembrance. That was beautifully done. The piano playing, the singer, Fr. Mike reading scripture and to end with the names and tree lighting...my heart was filled with joy that evening...Thank you again for all your service.

Just a short written note to say thank you gain for all you did to make my sister’s service a comforting reality. She would have been pleased with the entire service. You were empathetic, warm, and professionally throughout and it was very much appreciated.

I am tremendously grateful to you for how beautiful my loved ones funeral turned out. I have heard how you are in a fog at this time and now I know exactly what that means.
However, I feel fully confident in you all at Burton Funeral Home and the professionalism that you showed. I received so many compliments from various people.
I also wanted to accommodate you on your staff. The girls in your office could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Whoever picks your employees could not choose finer people.

Dear Karen,
I want to personally thank you all for your help with my mothers funeral.

Thanks to your diligent effort, the white bird release at the cemetery was very touching.


I also cannot begin to tell you how many people commented on what a nice newspaper writeup you did for moms obituary. I, along with my family appreciate your and everyone's endeavor to help us get through this difficult period.
