Showcase life in a special way

As our area has grown, we have expanded our burial and cremation services to accommodate the needs of our families. Part of every service includes the ability to plan a custom funeral or memorial service that celebrates life with dignity and respect.

Whether planning ahead or after losing a loved one, our funeral directors and support teams will assist you in selecting the type of service, writing obituaries, designing keepsakes for guests and organizing floral arrangements and catering. If that sounds too traditional, we also cater to families looking for alternate ways to honor their loved one's life.

History

Front exterior at White Funeral & Cremation ServiceOur Bolivia funeral home's chapel began as a mandate from the people of Brunswick County to Mr. and Mrs. Lad Coble, owners of Coble Funeral Home in Wilmington, North Carolina, to have a chapel closer to this growing rural area. During the process of construction, Mr. Coble sold his funeral homes and cemetery, Oleander Memorial Gardens. Upon completion, the chapel was an immediate success, meeting a growing demand for burial and cremation services in the central part of Brunswick County.

Changing with the times

We have been a member of Brunswick County for over 70 years. We were formerly known as Coble Ward-Smith Funeral Service until the summer 2015, when the affiliation with Greg and Delores White, the owners of Peacock-Newnam and White Funeral Service of Southport and White Funeral and Cremation Service of Shallotte merged. At this time, our name changed to White Funeral and Cremation Service to better serve our growing area. Greg White still enjoys an active role in the daily operations and services that we provide to you, our friends and neighbors.

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.

"In the death of my Mother and 19 days later the death of my Husband, I just do not know what I would have done without the staff of White Funeral & Cremation services. They made this most difficult time much easier to work through. Every staff member I had contact with was very comforting and most professional. I had the confidence in all of them

to make the passing of my loved ones an easier thing for me to accept and to make the arrangements easier for me to handle. I truly recommend White Funeral & Cremation services. Thank you all, Deborah Jenkins"

"I want to start out first by saying THANK YOU to everyone at White's Funeral Service. I have never had anyone treat me and my family with the most respect during our time of loss of our Dad. From when they came to the house for us to start planning, to the day they came to transport the body to the funeral home, my dad was in the military they drap

ed a flag cover over his body before they ever left the house, something that was so very touching to us, when we went to finish our planning there was no question that they would not answer for us. Always asking if we needed anything. They wanted to make sure that we were happy with everything from start to finish. There are no amount of words that I could even begin to say that would make you understand, you would have to experience it yourself. All I can say is they are THE BEST..."
