Service steeped in character

Arrangement Room at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary & CrematoryCallahan-Edfast Mortuary & Crematory has provided funerals, cremations and personalized memorials in Grand Junction since the 1910. Our highly credentialed team brings a lot to the table. With more than 100 years combined experience, service is in our DNA.

We hold ourselves to the highest standard, always striving to be open and caring. We serve every faith and work with any financial situation. We want to help every family who comes to us plan a unique celebration for their loved one.

A modern Grand Junction funeral home

Designed by a funeral home architect and built in 1997 specifically as a mortuary and crematory, the Callahan-Edfast facility is a modern, welcoming place to plan a funeral or cremation. Warm, smiling associates, a water feature and a foyer with a soaring ceiling and amazing natural light help create a soothing and hospitable atmosphere for each family who walks through our doors.

The non-denominational chapel holds about 200 in traditional pew seating. Families are welcome to use our Clavinova digital piano; a modern audiovisual system allows us to play music and show multimedia videos. A private room with a restroom adjoins the chapel and lends a level of comfort to families.

The funeral home lounge and coffee bar accommodates about 30 people for a reception before, during or after a service.

Our private on-site crematory

Special Feature in the Lobby at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary & CrematoryCremation is an increasingly common choice, but not everyone knows that cremation can also include a beautiful ceremony or even a viewing with visitation. 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 and partner with you to create a unique service for your loved one.

Callahan-Edfast Mortuary & Crematory performs all embalmings and cremations at the Patterson Road funeral home. That means your loved one never leaves our care.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.
