Why did Hawaiian Memorial Park Mortuary move?
For over fifty years, the ownership of Valley of the Temples was in a long-term lease agreement with the owners of Hawaiian Memorial Park to operate a mortuary business on the property of Hawaiian Memorial Park. The lease had many renewal options with the last expiring in February 2019. The owners of the cemetery declined to negotiate a new lease. In order to continue to serve our families in the way we have for over the last half century, we decided to construct a new facility on the beautiful grounds of Valley of Temples.
