About

Carl Barnes Funeral Home in Houston, Texas, provides affordable care that exceeds expectations. Our team of committed associates treats every family as our own and always has your best interests at heart. We’ll guide you through the process of planning a funeral or cremation from start to finish, meeting your needs and honoring your family traditions and personal preferences.

We know that losing a loved one is an emotional and challenging experience, and our mission at Carl Barnes Funeral Home is to alleviate as much stress as possible. By devoting ourselves to providing the utmost care and attention at the time of need, guiding your family through the grieving and healing process, and sharing the benefits of planning ahead, we've built lasting relationships and have earned the trust of the families we serve.

A welcoming Houston funeral home

Located in The Heights, in a single-story red brick building at the corner of West 22nd Street and North Durham Drive, Carl Barnes Funeral Home serves people from all walks of life and all faiths. With a large traditional funeral chapel and a flexible space that can be used for memorial or receptions, we easily accommodate gatherings of many sizes.

Traditional and contemporary funeral services

When you first meet with a Carl Barnes funeral director or celebrant, we'll ask questions about your loved one: what he liked to do, what she cherished, how he thought about the world, how she liked to spend time. From there, we create a service that speaks to the unique life of your loved one, whether that's a traditional religious funeral or a contemporary and upbeat celebration of life. You can inspire us with a memory of your loved one, a hobby that grew into a passion, a favorite music genre or a signature style, and we will work to gracefully incorporate as many personal elements as you would like into the service. 

Maybe Dad was a history buff and an Army veteran. Maybe Mom was known far and wide for her blueberry pies. Whatever the case, we're here to discover the details and weave them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial.

Our team is also experienced in planning catered events. Whether it's a breakfast buffet after a morning service, cake and coffee in the afternoon, or a full dinner reception, just let us know what you have in mind. We'll handle food, drink, decor and more. We'll  also help you write an obituary, create a multimedia tribute video for the service and assist you in choosing music.

Cremation services

If you are interested in this increasingly common decision, the funeral home team can explain the process and different choices. From a direct cremation without a memorial service to a witness cremation or a full funeral service before or after the cremation, we help you understand this option and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

In addition to assisting during a time of immediate need, our funeral directors specialize in working with families to plan ahead.

"We buried my mom yesterday. The moment we contacted Carl Barnes it had been a wonderful process. My funeral director was Josh. He was very patient and accommodating, not to mentioning comforting, which families really need when losing a loved one. I'm appreciative of everything they have done for my mother and my family. The Viewing and funeral was BEAUTIFUL. Carl Barnes was apart of my mother's will and wishes, and now I'll be adding them to mines as well."
