History of McPeters Funeral Directors
Founded in 1905 by W.T. McPeters and Dave Hindman, McPeters Funeral Directors began with the goal of providing burial insurance and economical funeral service to northern Mississippi and the surrounding area.

In 1916, J.R. (Bob) McPeters and W.L. McPeters bought out W.T. and Dave. Some years later, J.R.’s son Bill joined the business, and they worked together until J.R.’s death in 1949. In 1954, Bill bought his cousins’ share of the business and became the sole owner of the funeral home.

When the idea of burial insurance came about, McPeters was the first burial association in the State of Mississippi, and as funeral homes began to open in the surrounding towns, they began to purchase burial policies from McPeters. The cheapest funeral on record cost 25 cents.

In 1978, McPeters moved from its original location on Waldron Street to its East Third Street location. Today, we’re proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. When you choose a Dignity Memorial provider, you not only receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment, but also the value you deserve from the largest and most trusted network of funeral, cremation and memorialization services.
