For more than 50 years, our commitment has remained unchanged and yet, our funeral home has always responded to the changing needs of the Gresham community.

We Honor Veterans
At Bateman Carroll Funeral Home, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Four Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, we are honored to serve our nation’s heroes and take this responsibility seriously. We have taken steps to ensure our staff is knowledgeable of all the benefits available to military veterans and their families.
In addition, we host community events annually in honor of our veterans and work closely with local veterans organizations. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran’s memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.
We're here for you
We understand losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and at Bateman Carroll Funeral Home, we are committed to assisting you with compassionate, professional and personal service. Our professional staff is available to answer your call anytime—day or night. Please contact us for immediate assistance or for more information about our funeral and memorial services.
The Dignity Memorial® Lift Social Support Program
Losing a spouse can be the most stressful experience that many will face. Dignity Memorial LIFT (Living Information for Today®) is a social support program that gives widowed individuals the opportunity to socialize with others who share similar feelings and experiences. By hosting organized monthly events, such as luncheons, educational seminars and day trips, members have the chance to invest emotional energy in potential new friends and experiences.
You are invited to join us for LIFT Bunco at Bateman Funeral Home on the last Tuesday of the month from 3pm-5pm, January through October. For more information on this and other upcoming activities in the Portland area, contact us. Members may incur expenses related to activities or meals, but membership is free and is not restricted to those who have been served by Dignity Memorial® providers. LIFT is sponsored by the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
Bateman Carroll Funeral Home started in 1932 when Kenneth Bateman began his work in funeral service in Portland, Oregon. In 1950, he and his wife, Rita, moved to Gresham and began Bateman Funeral Chapel on Main Street. On February 20, 1958, the Gresham Outlook newspaper announced the opening of "The New Bateman Funeral Chapel." The newly constructed building was ready to serve the community.
The Morris years
In 1980, Kenneth sold the business to Stanley Morris. The Morris family purchased Carroll's Funeral Home in 1986, and 2 years later the 2 funeral homes merged into a single location on Powell Boulevard, becoming Bateman Carroll Funeral Chapel. In the mid-90s, Stanley Morris sold his interest in the funeral home.
Updates and remodels to our funeral home
Throughout the years, there have been numerous updates and remodels to our funeral home—all to improve our ability to provide exceptional, professional, caring service. In 2007, Bateman Carroll Funeral Home joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
Today, Bateman Carroll Funeral Home continues to provide the highest standards of service, leading the way in innovative methods to honor the memory of loved ones.
