Personalized funerals and memorials in Chattanooga

Lobby at Chattanooga Funeral Home, Crematory & Florist-North ChapelAt Chattanooga Funeral Home, Crematory & Florist – North Chapel, you'll find funeral professionals who are committed to serving families of all belief systems and cultures with loving care. We are dedicated to designing personalized funerals and memorials that capture unique personalities. Personalized celebrations of life are our specialty. We help you imagine it and then we bring it into focus.

We believe funeral and memorial services should reflect the people being honored, and we create one-of-a-kind events that capture the passions of loved ones. Consider a breakfast taco buffet, an ice cream social or a sit-down dinner followed by fireworks. A funeral can even have a tailgating theme dedicated to a University of Tennessee fan, a delightful yarn bombing honoring the family knitter or suitcases spilling over with postcards and plane tickets for a world traveler. A memorial service can include a dove release: 4 doves are released and take flight as symbols of love, peace, hope and the person who has died.

On-site crematory

Our full-service funeral home has a private on-site crematory, which gives Chattanooga Funeral Home complete control of a cremation, start to finish, and means your loved one never has to leave our care. If you are unsure about cremation, a team member can explain the process to you. We can perform a cremation following a funeral service, preceding a funeral service or without a service at all. If you wish, cremated remains can be placed at Hamilton Memorial Gardens.

We honor veterans

As a Level One Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, our staff is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families.

We are also pleased to offer an on-site floral shop to create any type of flower arrangement you’d like for a funeral, memorial or grave placement.

In 1991, Chattanooga Funeral Home acquired the Valley View Chapel on Old Lee Highway in Chattanooga. The funeral home became affiliated with Chattanooga Memorial Park in 1994. It then became affiliated with Hamilton Memorial Gardens, which is where the North Chapel is located—in 1998. Currently, Chattanooga Memorial Park serves about 250 families annually, and Hamilton Memorial Gardens serves approximately 600 families each year.

In 1970, Chattanooga Funeral Home joined the Dignity Memorial® network, the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"When I contacted CFH the first time, Bob Rogers spoke with me and answered my questions, putting me at ease about what I needed to do when my aunt passed (she was in hospice with health declining). After her passing, Russell helped me as he did when my uncle had passed. I needed a familiar face and a friend at that time and that is what Russell provided. He was very understanding of our needs and very helpful in helping us do things the way she wanted. I can't thank you all enough with all the help facilitating her service. Everything was perfect and the flowers were beautiful. My family was genuinely comforted due to the expert care you all so kindly provided. Thank you so much for treating my family and I as friends."

"I have worked with Chattanooga Funeral home twice now. They have now helped me with the care and services of both of my parents. Russell Ford is exceptional and was truly called to do the work that he does. I would not consider using another company."
