Griffin Leggett-Rest Hills Funeral Home and Memorial Park

History
At Griffin Leggett Funeral Homes & Memorial Parks, our story spans more than a century. It is a proud tradition, an honorable heritage and a history that we share with the communities we serve. Our experience guides our care, and our history reminds us that we are first and foremost a family serving families — we are people to depend on. In fact, Griffin Leggett Funeral Homes were named ‘Best of the Best’ funeral homes in 1998 by readers of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

Community Involvement
At Griffin Leggett, we take pride in being part of the communities we serve. In addition to providing professional and caring funeral service to Arkansas families, we are proud to offer the use of our facilities to local organizations for meetings or get-togethers. We also provide grief seminars and support groups, memorial services, hospice programs and a Memorial Tree program to remember loved ones during the holidays.

Our Griffin Leggett Healey & Roth Location
Healey & Roth Funeral Home was founded in 1905. In 1974, it merged with Griffin Leggett Funeral Home, which was established in 1936. The strong traditions of Griffin Leggett and those of Healey & Roth combined to create an establishment capable of providing unparalleled professional and personal service to Little Rock families. At Griffin Leggett, we believe that every life is unique, and every funeral should be too. We celebrate life. Griffin Leggett also offers The Simplicity Plan® prearrangement program, an easy way to handle an important family responsibility.
