Four generations in the funeral business

The Berry family of funeral homes and affiliated cemeteries have been serving the Knoxville community since 1928. Our tradition of providing honest and caring professional service has been passed down through four generations of the Berry family—and it is the foundation from which our solid reputation was built.

A Knoxville landmark

Front exterior at Berry Funeral HomeSituated at 3704 Chapman Highway, Berry Funeral Home is a Knoxville landmark. The funeral home holds the prestigious Knoxville Beautification Orchid Award for 2009. Its beautiful mountain stone building, flower gardens and water feature make the perfect setting for the service of your choosing.

Showcasing seven staterooms and a large chapel highlighted by a wonderful cathedral ceiling, our stunning arts and crafts facility provides a lovely setting to honor those you love. Our chapel also has state-of-the-art music and media capabilities for your family pictures and video slideshows.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

Let's celebrate life

Chapel at Berry Funeral HomeAt Berry Funeral Home, our team creates one-of-a-kind tributes that celebrate a person's passions and personality. We'll listen to you and your family to design a service that takes all of the things your loved one enjoyed, such as a favorite song, lifelong hobby or even a signature style, and weave them together to create an unforgettable memorial.

We can find inspiration almost anywhere. Imagine a motorcycle procession with his cherished chopper leading the way. Envision the chapel transformed into an art gallery with her paintings on the walls. Prefer a more traditional funeral service? We are happy to do that as well. We are committed to meeting your needs and wishes.

"It was a complicated funeral; the body had to be flown to Knoxville; coordination between a funeral home in Virginia and Berry did an outstanding job, everything was handled beautifully. Berry also coordinated all of the items for the cemetery. Everything had to be done long distance since we were not in town except for the day of the funeral. Than
