Robert G. Knox—the founder of what is now Knox and Brothers Funeral Home—originally came to Maysville in 1910.

Opened in 1910 and moved in 1954

Here, he became a partner at what was originally known as Mcllvain, Knox and Humphrey Funeral Home. Robert had come from West Liberty where he was partner at A.T. Brock Funeral Home. After Robert’s death in 1933, his son, Albert, became a partner in the business with his mother.

In 1954, the business moved to our current location at 625 East Second Street and changed to the name of Knox Funeral Home.

Trusted funeral provider

In January 1980, Albert Knox, his son, Billy Joe, and Robert Brothers merged the Knox Funeral Home and the Brothers Funeral to form the Knox and Brothers Funeral Home.

In 2010, we joined the Dignity Memorial network, the largest network of funeral, cremation, and burial providers in North America.
