Four generations in the funeral business

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.

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.

"The attention to detail was not expected but it mattered when we got to the moment of the memorial and graveside. The personal touch from specifically Fred and his Wife, and Wendy Miller cannot be described in just words. The entire team at Berry Funeral Home displayed a high standard of care and complete dignity that assured the whole family that they were in good hands."

"Working with Jeff and the Berry's were a pleasure. I could not have asked for more than what Jeff and his team offered me and my family during extremely difficult time. They take their job as a passion and a mission. I couldn't imagine going through this with them. Kevin"

"I was not expecting the level of service and responsiveness we received. I also did not expect compliments on the arrangements, but received 2 compliments. That is evidence of a job exceptionally well done. I couldn't have asked for more"
