An affordable Chattanooga funeral home
Located on McCallie Avenue, between Highland Park and Orchard Knob, we’re just eight blocks from Chattanooga National Cemetery. Our facility accommodates services large and small. The funeral chapel has room for up to 250 guests. It includes up-to-date audiovisual equipment for multimedia tribute videos, which we are honored to create for you. The flexible event space allows you to host a reception before or after a memorial—and we can arrange catering. Other amenities include an on-site flower shop, white limousines and a piano for your use.
Advantage offers an alternative to traditional funeral homes by making the arrangement process easy to understand, without sacrificing high quality or care. At Advantage, you can plan a funeral or memorial service that’s expressive but not expensive.
Created with families in mind, our packages are designed to offer a dignified and affordable way to remember a loved one. Whether you want a traditional funeral at the funeral home with a burial at a cemetery nearby, a basic cremation or a more robust celebration of life, our expert team will work with you on something simple but special. We honor all cultures, religions and backgrounds, and are experienced with many customs, including Judaism’s ritual washing.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you’re interested in cremation, we can explain the process and the different memorial and burial choices, from urns to remembrance jewelry. From a simple cremation without a service, to a full funeral service before or after the cremation, you can select from affordable packages to meet your needs.
For families who choose the time-honored tradition, our full-service funeral home uses a crematory dedicated to affiliates of the Dignity Memorial® network. This allows us to have control of a cremation from start to finish.
Your loved one’s urn can be picked up at the funeral home, or we can deliver it by U.S. mail or in person to your home.
To make a difficult time easier, Advantage offers straightforward burial and cremation packages for a range of budgets. You’ll start by choosing a set of services, and then selecting the merchandise option that best fits your needs. Options are clearly outlined for you—and there’s never any pressure to purchase more than you need. And, of course, you are always welcome to purchase services and merchandise a la carte from our General Price List.
