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.

Dear Karen, I am so sorry this is late coming but I wanted to express to you how kind you were to my daughter on the loss of her baby. You are such a warm and caring person.
The service was beautiful and it was a fitting end for my husband and his service of 21 years 8 months to our country.

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.
