Front exterior building at McEwen Funeral Service-Mint Hill ChapelFor more than 110 years, the McEwen Funeral Service family has served the Charlotte area. Our journey began around 1908 when R.J. McEwen began making coffins in Mint Hill, North Carolina, to help those who lost loved ones to a flu epidemic. In 1915, R.J.'s son, Carl J. McEwen, began working with him, and they later stocked caskets in their Mint Hill hardware store. In 1921, they added additional services and purchased a hearse for funeral services. As their business grew, R.J. and Carl opened McEwen Funeral Home of Mint Hill in 1926.

Additional services

In addition, McEwen Funeral Service provided ambulance service for several decades. At the time, few places in the United States had airplane ambulance service, and the McEwens provided the only option in the Southeast. Their bi-plane saved many lives in the 30s and was eventually donated to the war effort at the request of the federal government.

Growth and expansion

As a result of our strong reputation in the community, McEwen Funeral Service grew rapidly. In 1935, we opened a location in Monroe. We added another location on East Morehead Street in Charlotte in 1947. As the business continued to grow, we expanded with locations in Derita in 1972 and Pineville in 1993.

Today, we continue to innovate and offer specialized funeral and memorial services for all our families. It's our hope to provide the same quality care on which we were founded while meeting the changing needs of the Charlotte area.

"I can't express to you enough the very calming and relaxed way my family and I were treated. It was so very nice after all we'd gone through during these recent weeks. Erin was informative and easy to talk to and understanding. Never pushy and I didn't feel like she was trying to sell us more than what we could do and that meant so very much. I really really was impressed. I thank you for taking care of us Erin."
