History

Our funeral home's history dates back over 90 years. We have had the wonderful opportunity to serve the Charlotte community with the same values we were founded on many decades ago.

Building relationships

In 1926, the late D.K. Sing formed a partnership with Benjamin E. Douglas—the mayor of Charlotte from 1935-1941 and namesake of Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Together, they established the Douglas & Sing Mortuary at the intersection of Elizabeth Street and Fox Street. Douglas & Sing Mortuary operated the 1st ambulance service in Charlotte.

The Miller & Kerns years

Our funeral home changed hands in the '50s when 2 employees of Douglas & Sing Mortuary, Bill Miller and Marcus Kerns, purchased the location and established the Miller & Kerns Funeral Home at 333 Hawthorne Lane.

Current location

In 1980, Donald R. Wilson purchased Miller & Kerns Funeral Home and established Miller, Kerns & Wilson Funeral Service. Wilson purchased a building on Albemarle Road, formerly Good Shepard Lutheran Church, and re-established our funeral home as Wilson Funeral and Cremation Service.

Today, we continue our dedication of serving the East Charlotte community with all their burial and cremation needs.

"Having Pre-Planned my fathers death, countless conversations with him about 'the day' still doesn't prepare you for the 'WHAT COMES NEXT ' moment that overwhelms you when that day comes. Wilson Funeral Services was absolutely comforting from the 1st phone call of picking up my fathers body to the very last day of the burial. I never felt that I w

as just another 'job' to Tim or the Wilson team. We faced an issue with the Cemetary (had nothing to do with Wilson funeral) they quickly jumped to correct the issue, just so we didnt have to face it ourselves. JUST WONDERFUL. I can't thank them enough!! And to the guys that picked up my father, WOW, the love and care they had over the body of someone they didn't even know, what a blessing. Truly amazed by Wilson Funeral Service! Thank you for making the saddest moment of my life a time to remember with such respect 💝"
