About Us

Elmwood Cemetery is the final resting place for over 30,000 individuals, from politicians, business leaders, soldiers, celebrities, and every one in between. Founded in 1872, Elmwood is Kansas City's second-oldest historic cemetery. We still provide funeral and burial services. However, Elmwood's most important mission is to maintain the facilities and grounds of this historic site.
