Centrally Located

Conveniently located on US-79, near I-40 and I-240 in the center of Memphis, Family Funeral Care offers easy access to many of the area highways for you and your guests. We are in close proximity to Memphis cemeteries including Memorial Gardens and Memphis Memory Gardens and work closely with all local cemetery locations.

Newly Renovated Facilities

Chapel at Family Funeral CareHonoring your loved ones is at the center of what we do, and our recent remodel focuses on providing as much comfort as possible to grieving families. Our spaces provide a stately, warm and modern feel, with elegant, classic wood and soft finishes, including wood flooring throughout. Our red brick exterior offers an inviting welcome to guests.

Our renovated chapel has seating for nearly two hundred attendees, with the ability to convert our lobby areas for additional overflow seating. The reception room is a welcoming space for families to gather for luncheons and receptions, and our visitation rooms offer the flexibility for comfortable seating areas for family and friends to gather in smaller, more intimate groups or can be combined into one larger room. Schedule an appointment to view our facilities at your convenience. 

Caring Funeral Home Staff

Sitting Area at Family Funeral CareFuneral planning can seem overwhelming. Losing a family member is an emotional experience, and grief can make the funeral planning process difficult. The staff at Family Funeral Care have spent their professional lives comforting and providing support during these times. We offer the highest quality facilities at prices to fit anyone’s budget—whether simple or elaborate, burial or cremation, services in your home or ours. There is absolutely no detail too small or too large when it comes to providing our families with the service they desire.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.
