Let our family serve yours

Front Entrance at Chapel at Grant Mortuary & Crematory – CraigWith a population of just 9,500, Craig is home to people who have been kin and neighbors for generations. Chances are very good that when someone comes through our funeral home doors, we’ve known them their whole lives. We already have a connection to them and hold them in our hearts. We’re not just funeral providers: We’re a family who is here for your family when you need us.

Located on Yampa Avenue, across from The Museum of Northwest Colorado, Grant Mortuary & Crematory – Craig is the only funeral home in a 50-mile radius. It is a comfortable place to plan and hold a funeral or memorial. The chapel seats 100, and we are experienced in planning services for people of all backgrounds. Many families opt to hold a reception at The Center of Craig (formerly The First Christian Church), which is in walking distance of the funeral home.

Craig is a melting pot, and we are committed to serving all of our neighbors. We are very familiar with the traditions of the Mormon, Christian and Lutheran faiths. Members of the Greek Orthodox faith often hold their Trisagions at our funeral home the night before a service. Members of the Catholic faith frequently hold rosaries here. For Hispanic families—or any other family—we offer extended visitations and viewings.

A private crematory in Craig

Cremation is an increasingly common request, but not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. From a cremation without a funeral service to a cremation with a memorial that follows, we help you understand the variety of arrangements that are possible. Grant Mortuary & Crematory – Craig has a private crematory on-site, giving you the peace of mind that your loved one never leaves our care. A family may witness the cremation of their loved one if they so desire.

Going above and beyond

We will come to your home to make arrangements and even offer a ride if you need help getting to the funeral. We will drive to be by your side when you need us—before or after a loss—because we deeply care for you.

History

I.J. Robacker opened a furniture store and funeral home in Craig, Colorado, in 1919. He operated the funeral home for 35 years until selling it to John and Lorene Zobel. The couple changed the name to Zobel Mortuary and operated the business together until 1976, when their sons, Bruce and William, took over.

Bruce bought his brother’s interest in 1977. He sold the funeral home in 1980 to Owen Grant. Owen changed the name of the Craig funeral home to Grant Mortuary. He continues to work at the funeral home today.

Realizing that the families of Meeker and Rio Blanco County needed a convenient place to plan funerals and cremations, Owen opened Grant Mortuary & Crematory – Meeker at 345 6th St.

Rick Allnutt and Susan Hughes purchased both locations in August 2014, and Grant Mortuary & Crematory – Craig became part of the Allnutt family of funeral homes, which today belong to the Dignity Memorial® network, the largest group of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America.
