About

American Heritage Funeral Home has provided families in the Houston area with compassionate funeral and cremation services since 1995. With modern facilities and an experienced staff, we specialize in personalized traditional funerals and contemporary celebrations of life.

Start With a Story

at American Heritage Funeral HomeHouston has been recognized as the most diverse city in the United States. People in the Bayou City come from all walks of life—and American Heritage Funeral Home welcomes families of every cultural background. Our expert team is well-educated in the customs and rituals important to those of the Protestant, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist and Hindu faiths, as well as the Hispanic and Asian cultures.

When you work with us to create a funeral or memorial, we focus on your special loved one and the preferences of your family. Paint us a picture of a personality, passions and pursuits, and we will create a fitting tribute to be remembered by all who attend. With your ideas and our planning expertise, we can fulfill almost any final wish. Whether it’s a gridiron theme for the biggest football fan or beach lover’s tribute decorated with sand and seashells, the celebration of a lifetime begins here. 

Serving Military Families, Veterans and First Responders

Unique features at American Heritage Funeral HomeIn 2002, American Heritage Funeral Home was chosen to lead the Homeless Veterans Burial Program for the Dignity Memorial® network. Through this program, we provide honorable military funeral services for homeless veterans without family. In the years since we began the program, we have coordinated with Houston National Cemetery to ensure that homeless veterans are buried with the respect and dignity they deserve.

However, caring for homeless veterans is just part of our dedication to military families. We design funeral and memorial services appropriate for veterans and active-duty personnel from all branches of the U.S. armed forces. Among the special services we offer is a horse-drawn Civil War caisson. We also have a strong relationship with the Patriot Guard Riders.

We also highly value our community’s first responders. We consider it a privilege to work with the families of area police officers and firefighters, including the Houston Fire Department Honor Guard, to plan funerals and memorials of the highest standards.

Your Trusted Provider

As a member of the Dignity Memorial network, American Heritage Funeral Home gives you the warm, familiar attention you expect from a locally owned business as well as the benefits you expect from North America's largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

"The horse drawn carriage was really very nice. I had not seen that before. A friend used your services and told me to be sure and do that, that is was beautiful and it was. My husband was a very special man and he served 23 yrs 7 months in the Air Force. A great man"

"ONLY negative comment would be that the LiveStream audio is seriously lacking. Video is excellent but audio is almost non-existent. However, relatives and friends that could not attend were extremely appreciative that you offered the LiveStream."
