A welcoming Houston funeral home

Located in a single-story brick building at Lockwood Drive and Tidwell Road, in Houston's Trinity Gardens neighborhood, Lockwood Funeral Home is a pillar of the African American community and serves people from all walks of life and all faiths. Our flexible spaces easily accommodate gatherings of many sizes for funerals, memorials and receptions. We offer in-home visitation, if that's your family's preference, and can arrange for a police escort from the funeral home to a local cemetery.

Traditional and contemporary funeral services

When you first meet with a Lockwood funeral director, we'll ask questions about your loved one: what he liked to do, what she cherished, how he thought about the world, how she liked to spend time. From there, we create a service that speaks to the unique life of your loved one, whether that's a traditional religious funeral or a contemporary and upbeat celebration of life. You can inspire us with a memory of your loved one, a hobby that grew into a passion, a favorite music genre or a signature style, and we will work to gracefully incorporate as many personal elements as you would like into the service.

Maybe Dad was a car buff and an antique sign collector. Maybe Mom was known far and wide for her homemade ice cream and fried pies. Whatever the case, we're here to discover the details and weave them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial.

Our team is also experienced in planning catered events. Whether it's a breakfast buffet after a morning service, cake and coffee in the afternoon, or a full dinner reception, just let us know what you have in mind. We'll handle food, drink, decor and more. We will also help you write an obituary, create a multimedia tribute video for the service and assist you in choosing music.

Cremation services

Urn outside on table with flowers around it Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in this increasingly common decision, the funeral home team can explain the process and different choices. From a direct cremation without a memorial service to a witness cremation or a full funeral service before or after the cremation, we help you understand this tradition option—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

A loved one's urn or ashes may be picked up at the funeral home, or we will deliver them to your home in person or by mail.

Planning ahead

At Lockwood Funeral Home, we also recognize that funeral arrangements and associated expenses can be overwhelming. In addition to assisting during a time of immediate need, our funeral directors specialize in working with families to plan ahead. By preparing in advance, you provide a sense of relief, peace of mind and comfort for your loved ones while ensuring your wishes are met and your budget is maintained. A complimentary planning guide is also available, with no obligation.

As part of the Dignity Memorial® network, we offer a selection of unmatched services. They include the following and much more:

  • Relocation protection.* If you move more than 75 miles from where your original arrangements were made, your prearranged funeral services are transferable and will be honored at any of the more than 1,900 Dignity Memorial providers throughout North America.
  • 100 percent guaranteed satisfaction. Our goal is to provide you with the absolute best service possible. If there’s something we can do better before, during or after a service, we want you to tell us.
  • Purchase protection plan. Should you pass away before your purchased cemetery property is fully paid for, your family will receive some financial relief. Our Purchase Protection Plan will help take care of any remaining balance due to the cemetery. Purchaser must be under 65 years of age; maximum forgiven balance not to exceed $5,000.
