Our Story

Founded in 1925 as a beautifully landscaped park about six miles northeast of downtown Dallas, Restland has since grown to encompass more than 375 acres.

Featuring the stunning Wildwood Chapel, the Abbey Mausoleum and Chapel, and the Chapel Gardens Mausoleum, Restland has also developed special sections for veterans, babies and various religions. Our expansive funeral home was added in 1957.

Known for its dignity, peace and serenity, Restland is a 30,000-square foot, full-service facility capable of helping families locally and around the world. We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built on quality, sincerity and trust, with services that celebrate the life of each individual and respect the wishes of every family.

The people who helped us were kind and caring and gentle. Made a sad experience manageable.

Ryan, thank you for all your assistance with my Grandmother’s funeral. Everything you did and all the time you spent with us made us feel so comfortable and cared for. We wish to also thank Jack for Driving our family and thank Jim for moving and re-displaying the flowers. Sincerely

I was at Restland yesterday for my aunt’s funeral. I'm from out of town, and after the service I stopped to ask if someone could help me find my dad’s grave. Employees could not have been nicer or more helpful. They even drove me and walked me right up to my dad’s headstone. I love this place its an A+++++ from me.
-Janet Owens
I put my wife Sherry to rest there and the staff worked with me on all the details. There was never a problem at all during any of the services nor the burial — a perfect funeral to send her off to heaven the best way I could.
