Personalized funeral services, celebrations of life

Lobby at Memphis Funeral Home and Memorial GardensRenovated in 2016, Memphis Funeral Home is more than 13,000 square feet of contemporary comfort. The lobby fireplace helps create the feeling of a personal residence. Sit with us in a private space and let's discuss life. Who was your special person? How did he or she live? What's the very best way to celebrate and remember?

Chapel at Memphis Funeral Home and Memorial GardensIs it a traditional funeral service performed by a member of the clergy in the Dogwood Chapel, where pews seat up to 300 guests and 3 huge windows let in lots of natural light? Or, is it a contemporary service conducted by our celebrant, complete with a multimedia tribute and a custom playlist before and during the gathering? Maybe it starts with a visitation in the Azalea Suite and ends with a golf-themed reception for 100 guests who are treated to the best barbecue in Memphis and golf shirts as takeaways. Maybe guests see a farm tractor at our entrance and enjoy a buffet of Grandpa's cherished pies.

Whatever's right for the specific life you're giving tribute to, we can help you create virtually anything you desire.

Cremation services

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

In-House Crematory and Florist

Memphis Funeral Home is proud to operate our own in-house crematory, staffed with caring employees, ensuring that your loved one will never leave our care until they are safely returned to you following cremation. Our in-house florist receives fresh flower deliveries daily, ensuring your floral needs are met and your expectations are exceeded.

History

In 1955, Arch C. Long began developing a cemetery in a cotton field outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Under its original name, Memory Hill Gardens, the cemetery became a member of the Dignity Memorial® network in 1992.

Just a few years later, in 1995, Memphis Funeral Home was built on the southwest corner of the cemetery property. In 2008, the funeral home and cemetery began operating under the names Memphis Funeral Home and Memorial Gardens.

These establishments have evolved over the years to meet the changing needs of the community, yet our commitment to compassionate care and service excellence has never wavered.

Caring for the community

Memphis Funeral Home and Memorial Gardens place a big importance on community involvement. Our teams belong to such organizations as the Bartlett Chamber of Commerce and Northeast Shelby County Rotary Club. Additionally, we host events for the families we've served as well as the community at large. Each Mother’s Day, we distribute roses to families visiting our cemetery and invite them to place the flowers on the graves of their loved ones. On both Memorial Day and Veterans Day, we fly flags throughout the cemetery and hand out little flags for visitors to place on military graves.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Memphis Funeral Home did an amazing job with our father's funeral. Amber Brummett, funeral home director, was exceptional. Attentive, sensitive and caring, she very much helped to make our sad days bearable. My father passed suddenly from Covid-19 which made it necessary to communicate with distant relatives quickly and she handled it seamless. She went above and beyond, miraculously securing an AF honor guard when we could not locate our father's DD214 form in time. She was instantly available day, night and on weekends and would quickly assist us with any request, sometimes serving as counselor in addition to her typical funeral home duties. She is an amazing funeral home director and does not know the meaning of the word 'no.' Our officiant Jonathan Matthews spent countless hours getting to know our father's life, skillfully and sensitively interviewing family members & even researching Dignity postings to get to know him better. He was anxious to let attendees know who our father was and he was spectacular - the service was warm, funny and memorable for all of us. Much more than we could have ever dreamed. We would not hesitate to recommend these two caring individuals and Memphis Funeral Home to anyone."

"Chris was above and beyond showing professionalism and personal care. This was also extended by everyone that I worked with, although I didn't always get their names. This process was flawless, smooth and very nice (as well as it could be involving my father's death). I will always recommend your services to family and friends."
