Cemetery is located at Menaul Blvd. and Edith Blvd. N.E.
This is a beautiful cemetery with lawns, mausoleums, and chapel.
History: Chester T. French founded Sunset Memorial Park in 1929. His goal was to provide endowed-care cemetery services to Albuquerque. The very first burial area of Sunset is located at the corner of Edith Blvd. and Menaul Blvd.The large stately trees that grace the grounds are result of the care they have been given in 70 years of life. In May 1988, Sunset Memorial dedicated the newest area of the cemetery with over two acres of spacious memorial lawnsand views of the Sandia Mountains. In addition, a new area for individual cremation memorialization is the "Old Town Mosaic". It is a collage of six pictures in around the Plaza of Old Town Albuquerque. These 168 niches are madefrom over 10, 000 pieces of Italian glass."
Sunset Memorial is directed by on site manager, Paul Layer, and a board of Directors. There are groundskeepers on site 24 hours a day.
