Acerca de

Edwards Funeral Home has served the families of Fort Smith, Arkansas, and surrounding communities with compassionate funeral care and professional service for 3 generations. We understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are here for you every step of the way. 

Committed to serving Fort Smith

We are a non-denominational funeral home, welcoming families of all faiths, backgrounds and religions. For families who have relocated to the Fort Smith area and wish to have their loved one's service elsewhere, we can also help to arrange for transportation.

As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, all our services are designed to help you through one of the most personal and challenging stages of life. 

We celebrate life

At Edwards Funeral Home, we believe that every tribute should be as unique as the person it honors, and thus, make it our mission to help families create personalized funerals and memorials. Whether it's a traditional funeral service or a customized Life Well Celebrated® memorialization, we work with you one-on-one to ensure your needs, wishes and budget are met.

We can find inspiration almost anywhere. Was he an avid angler? We can help you create a video slideshow of his best catches and display his prized fishing rods in our chapel. We could even have a catered dinner with all of his favorite seafood.

Did she play bridge every week? Let's create a bridge tournament and distribute personalized playing cards to guests as a keepsake. With a little imagination, we can plan a memorial like no other that reflects the passions and personality of your loved one.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, our funeral home team can explain the process and discuss your different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements. 

Planning in advance

At Edwards Funeral Home, we also recognize that funeral arrangements and associated expenses can be overwhelming. In addition to assisting during your immediate time of need, we specialize in working with families to plan final arrangements in advance. By preparing these details ahead of time, you provide a sense of relief, peace of mind and comfort to your loved ones while ensuring your wishes are met. We are here to discuss your options should you wish to do so in advance.

Chapel at Edwards Funeral Home Thank you for considering Edwards Funeral Home for your funeral needs.

History

Delmar D. Edwards and his wife, Hazel, founded Edwards Funeral Home in 1933. With the help of his nephew, J.D. Edwards, Delmar moved to a new facility at 12th and B Streets in 1936. In 1939, a fire destroyed the home and a new facility was built in 1940.

Growth and expansion

In the 70s, the family expanded their care in Crawford County with the addition of Edwards Van-Alma Funeral Home in Van Buren and the purchase of nearby Fentress Mortuary. Today, Delmar "Butch" Edwards III and his brother, Jim R. Edwards manage Edwards Funeral Home and uphold the tradition of excellent, honest service set forth by their late father Delmar Edwards Jr., their cousin J.D.

At Edwards Funeral Home, we are proud to carry on the proud heritage and high standard of care that began with Delmar Sr.'s vision and leadership.

"I would recommend this business 100% to anyone and know that they would be taken care of. I already have a sister, a brother and my niece and her husband that are definitely going to Edwards Funeral Home to prearrange for themselves, after they seen how beautiful my husband's service was and how kind and professional the people from Edwards were, they were sold!"
