The Carmichael - Hemperley Funeral Home, East Point has been providing compassionate funeral service to the community since the early 1900s. A.C Hemperley & Sons, founded in 1904, and Howard L. Carmichael & Sons, founded in 1905, joined together in 2000 to provide services to citizens of East Point, College Park, Peachtree City, Fulton, Fayette and Coweta Counties under the name of Carmichael - Hemperley Funeral Home.
A.C Hemperley, founder of A.C Hemperley & Sons Funeral Home, moved to East Point in 1895. Seeing the great need for a funeral home in the area, A.C Hemperley Funeral Director and Embalmer opened in East Point in September 1904. After A.C. Hemperley’s death in 1934, his son, Carlos Mason Hemperley, and grandson, Carlos M. Hemperley Jr., owned and operated the funeral home.
In 1905, Howard L. Carmichael entered the funeral service profession in McDonough, Georgia. He moved the Hemperley Funeral Home to East Point in 1922 and built the present funeral home, located at 2968 East Point Street, in 1928. In 1946, the name changed from Howard L. Carmichael Funeral Home to Howard L. Carmichael & Sons. Mr. Carmichael died in 1957 and his sons, Leslie and Abb, kept their father’s tradition alive by continuing to serve families with compassionate, professional and personal service.
Soon after Howard L. Carmichael & Sons opened its doors in Peachtree City, Georgia, in 1994, the need for a crematory in the area became apparent and a crematory was built. In 2006, the facility changed its name to Carmichael-Hemperley Funeral Home & Crematory. Our crematory is the only on-site crematory in Fayette County.
In 2000, Howard L. Carmichael & Sons Funeral Home joined together with A.C. Hemperley & Sons Funeral Home to form Carmichael - Hemperley Funeral Homes.
Today, the tradition of providing compassionate, professional and dedicated service set by both families continues with the Carmichael - Hemperley Funeral Homes located in East Point and Peachtree City. We began with a commitment to a high standard of service, and throughout our history we have continued to lead and innovate while maintaining those high standards of service. Everyone at Carmichael - Hemperley Funeral Homes is proud to uphold this heritage and commitment to our community.
