About Us

Sunset Memorial Park

We believe all lives are worthy of honor and respect. We are the most highly endowed, perpetual care cemetery in the state of New Mexico.

Sunset Memorial Park was established in 1929 by Chester T. French, the founder of FRENCH Funerals- Cremations. FRENCH Funerals-Cremations remains locally and family owned and has been caring for families of New Mexico since 1907. FRENCH Funerals-Cremations serves families through funeral services at FRENCH Funerals-Cremations, cemetery arrangements through Sunset Memorial Park, pet cremations through Best Friends Pet Cremations, as well as Advance Planning and grief support.
