About

James B. Earthman Sr. began Earthman Funeral Directors in 1889 with a commitment to a high standard of service. Throughout our 125-plus-year history, we’ve continued to lead and innovate while maintaining that standard.

In 1981, we opened Earthman Funeral Directors - Hunters Creek. Conveniently located off Houston's Katy Freeway, our Hunters Creek funeral home continues to uphold our founder's heritage and commitment to providing Houston-area families the finest funeral and cremation services.

A modern funeral home

Our contemporary funeral home has an on-site chapel and plenty of room for gathering with friends and family. Should you wish to host coffee and tea, wine and cheese or even lunch or dinner, we can handle food and beverage catering. Because we know that each life is different and every family is unique, our funeral home team is trained to listen carefully and help you design a personalized funeral or memorial service.

At Earthman Funeral Directors - Hunters Creek, we pride ourselves on events that truly celebrate you or your loved one.

We are here to help you and your family celebrate a life like no other.

History

James Bradshaw Earthman Sr. was a blacksmith and livery service provider in Taylor, Texas. The town of Taylor purchased a horse-drawn hearse, and as proprietor of the livery stable, James was frequently asked by the townspeople to assist with their funeral needs. Beginning in 1889, providing funeral services became James's full-time profession.

In 1904, James and his friend, railroad surveyor J.C. McCarty, moved to Houston and established the Earthman and McCarty Undertaking Company at 715 Main Street. The company prospered and, in 1924, moved to 2420 Fannin Street. After Mr. McCarty’s death, the company became J.B. Earthman Company.

A successful family business

After James' death in 1931, his son, James B. "J.B." Earthman Jr., a graduate of St. Thomas High School and Rice University, left his successful architectural career to manage the company. His wife, Blanche Bastien Earthman, assisted with the daily operation of the business and was one of the first women in Texas to become a licensed funeral director.

J.B. was a pioneer in funeral planning, founding a burial insurance company in the 1930s. Together, J.B. and Blanche built Earthman Funeral Directors & Cemeteries into one of the largest family-owned and operated funeral companies in the United States. Their children and grandchildren continued to manage and expand the business, adding new locations throughout the community.

Earthman Funeral Directors - Hunters Creek opened in 1981.

Upholding our legacy

James B. Earthman Sr. began with a commitment to a high standard of service, and throughout our history, we’ve continued to lead and innovate while maintaining that standard. Everyone at Earthman Funeral Directors & Cemeteries is proud to uphold his heritage and commitment to our community.

"Earthman made sure to take care of my family during such a tough time. They offered to personalize everything and allowed us to do arrangements completely remotely, and even sent four urns to different family members so that we could have services across the country. They were patient and incredibly understanding, and I felt supported throughout the process."
