Located in Central, Louisiana, Central Funeral Home is a nondenominational funeral home serving families in and around Baker, Baton Rouge, Central, Denham Springs, Zachary and beyond. Situated on the southwest side of downtown Central, we are located on Hooper Road.

Your dedicated Central funeral home

Built in 2012, Central Funeral Home is a warm and welcoming place in which to plan a funeral or cremation. The 8,700-square-foot building has updated, comfortable spaces featuring tall ceilings, neutral colors, an abundance of natural light, beautiful flooring and modern furnishings. With ample parking on all sides of our single-story building, we are also handicap accessible.

Accommodating spaces

Central Funeral Home offers a number of flexible spaces for both intimate and larger gatherings. When you enter the spacious lobby, you see our administrative offices to the right and a cozy coffee bar to the left. There are two chapels located across the hall from each other. Identical in layout and function, each comfortably accommodates 125 guests in chair seating. The chapels are flooded with natural light during the day and are equipped with audio systems and flat-screen televisions for the display of personalized slideshows or videos. We also have an electric organ.

The versatility and flow of our spaces allows us to set up a service in one chapel and a reception in the other. For those who wish to host a catered reception before, after or during a service, we can arrange food and drinks.

Personalized services and celebrations of life

At Central Funeral Home, we understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are committed to providing compassionate care and professional and personal service.

Whether you wish to arrange for a traditional funeral service, Life Well Celebrated® memorialization or a cremation memorial, our funeral associates will work with you one on one to ensure that your needs, wishes and budget are met. At Central Funeral Home, it is our promise to provide you with the utmost care and ability to design a service that is special, meaningful and deeply reflective of the life being honored.

Cremation options

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, we can explain the process and your various choices. 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 ahead

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

"The staff were perfect, calm an understanding. Covid-19 made this a difficult situation to bury my beloved husband in regards to guidelines and social distances. They worked with me online and by phone until every detail was put into place. I chose them because, Central Funeral, was the only funeral service offering live streaming, which enabled out of town family and friends the opportunity to join us in prayer, memories and our final farewell. Grateful to Whitney and Staff! Sincerely, The Martinez Family"
