At Bateman Carroll Funeral Home, we have provided funeral and cremation services for the people of Gresham, Oregon, since 1932. We believe funeral services should reflect the lives of those being honored, and we strive to create meaningful, creative tributes to those who have meant so much to family and friends.

Funerals and memorials for all faiths

Our experienced and knowledgeable team is able to serve families of all faiths, beliefs, cultures and backgrounds. 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. With an extensive remodel completed in 2008, our facility offers more space to accommodate the many types of service options we offer.

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.


Lobby at Bateman Carroll Funeral HomeBateman 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

Reception room at Bateman Carroll Funeral HomeThroughout 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.

"I wish to compliment Bateman-Carroll and Dignity for their professionalism and concern during our time of grief and need for assistance in the burial of our beloved. Dan Silva went out of his way a number of times, including working after hours and weekends, to assist us during this sad time. He made certain everyone participating in the process understood the options, what was expected of us, when and how things would happen and what would come next including how to contact agencies and how to deal with necessary actions we needed to take during and after the burial process. The staff made it as easy as possible for us, even though COVID 19 restrictions made funerals and burials more difficult."
