Serving the Gig Harbor area since 1954, this cemetery sits on a hill overlooking the harbor and has a view of Mt Rainier. The land was purchased by Perkins Funeral Home. In 1964 the business was sold and the Funeral Home was built. The new owners renamed the cemetery to Haven of Rest Memorial Park. In 1978 the business gained another new owner. The Funeral Home and it's Chapel were renovated in 1989. In 1996 the mausoleum was expanded and renovated. The facility added a crematorium in 1997. As of end ot 2012 a new urn wall was put into place. This cemetery was fully photographed and documented via visible markers/off-site research by Find A Grave members as of May 2012.
Haven of Rest has a policy now where they will not release the location of burials to anyone that is NOT family to the deceased. If you are family, please request a location and have them confirm that a marker is in place so photo volunteers can successfully complete the request. Please note on the request that you are family along with the location and marker confirmation so photo volunteers can successfully complete the request.
