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
Situated 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.
Let's celebrate life
At 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.
