The Snow family has provided dignified, meaningful funeral services for their friends and neighbors in Macon, Georgia, since 1942. We believe that a funeral or memorial not only honors the memory of a loved one, but that it's also a special time to gather and heal.
With three locations, Snow's Memorial Chapel is a beautiful place to plan and hold a memorial or cremation service—from a traditional funeral to a non-traditional celebration, veterans service to a culturally specific memorial. We understand that every life is unique and deserves to be remembered in a special way.

A beautiful new Macon funeral home
Opened in the spring of 2020, Snow's Memorial Chapel on Bass Road is an elegant, modern facility thoughtfully designed for today's families. Light and airy, in soft browns and grays, the 8,400-square-foot funeral home has a chapel that seats 175 guests, posh staterooms small and large, and a spacious reception room for catered events.
A patio with a fire pit and a water feature invites guests to linger outdoors when the weather is nice. A double-sided indoor fireplace divides the entry and a restful living room for a cozy feel in winter. Coffered ceilings are a standout architectural detail. Natural light floods the space during the day.
Parking is plentiful and the building is fully handicap accessible. Our staff knows the meaning of Southern hospitality.
Personalized funeral services
Losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience. We're committed to providing personal and professional service with compassion and creativity.
When you first meet with a funeral director or certified 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'll help you 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 provide inspiration with a memory of your loved one. From guitars to golf, prize-winning peaches to prize-winning roadsters, we take the things that mattered to that special person and weave them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial. We're here to help tell the story of your loved one's life—or your own, if you are planning in advance.
Our team is experienced in arranging catered events and our onsite reception space is flexible for groups large and small. Whether it's a breakfast buffet after a morning service, an ice cream social in the afternoon, or a full dinner reception, just let us know what you have in mind. We'll hire a caterer to handle food and drinks, and we help with decor and more. If it's an outdoor celebration you're seeking, we'll come up with something just right. Think: a late afternoon barbecue with a country band that plays into the evening or a beach-themed celebration complete with sand, seashells and guests in flip-flops.
Let us handle every detail so you can spend more time with the people you love.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, we can explain the process and the different memorial and burial choices. From a direct cremation without a service or witness, to a full funeral service before or after the cremation, we'll help you understand this increasingly common decision.
A loved one's urn or ashes may be picked up at the funeral home, or we can deliver them to your home in person or by U.S. mail. We also offer cremation jewelry, which is a special way to keep the memory of a loved one close.
In addition to assisting during your time of need, our team specializes in helping families and individuals plan final arrangements in advance. We recognize that funeral arrangements and associated expenses can be overwhelming. By preparing these details ahead of time, you provide a sense of relief and comfort to your loved ones while ensuring your personal wishes are known. We can provide information or answer questions about pre-planning your funeral, cremation and cemetery arrangements.

Snow’s Memorial Chapel began in downtown Macon, Georgia, in 1892 as Burgard Funeral Furnishings. In 1942, William A. Snow Jr. bought the funeral home for his brother-in-law, Everett Sammons, and changed the name to Memorial Chapel.
In 1959, Everett's nephew, William A. Snow III, began working at the funeral home. When Everett died in 1973, William A. Snow III and his wife took over the management of the business. Later, in 1979, he bought the funeral home from his father and changed the name to Snow’s Memorial Chapel. William A. Snow III passed away in February of 2020. His wife, Jean Snow, is still active in the business today.
Reginald Smith, who began working with us in 1965, has a long-term heritage of serving in our funeral home. William A. Snow IV, who started in 1983, manages the Macon area funeral homes including all three Snow's Memorial Chapel and Macon Memorial Park Funeral Home and Cemetery.
