Chapel at Snow's Memorial ChapelAt Snow’s Memorial Chapel, we offer a beautiful chapel at our Cherry Street location. The Waterford chandelier and mahogany pews add to the character of the beautiful setting that seats more than 225 guests. Our state-of-the-art sound and video equipment make it convenient to share memories and favorite songs.

Personalized services

We proudly offer celebrant-led services to families who want a personalized service. Our certified celebrant is an ordained minister, however celebrant services can be as traditional as a formal church service or contemporary and non-religious—and anywhere in between. In celebrant-led services focus is made on the life being honored and that person’s joys, accomplishments and legacy.

History

Front exterior at Snow's Memorial ChapelLocated in downtown Macon, Snow’s Memorial Chapel began 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, Sammons’ nephew, William A. Snow III, began working at the funeral home, and in 1973, Everett Sammons passed away, William A. Snow III and his wife managed the business. Later in 1979, he purchased the funeral home from his father and changed the name to Snow’s Memorial Chapel. Both Mr. and Mrs. William A. Snow III are 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 Snow’s Memorial Chapel on Cherry Street and is also the General Manager of the Macon Georgia Group.

"I could not be more pleased with the services our family received from Snow's on Cherry St. Bill Snow was kind, caring, and professional. He also made himself personally available to me whenever I had a need or question. Every detail of the services was wonderful. I would highly recommend Snow's to friends and family."

"My father was involved with the funeral industry for most of his life and we supplied caskets to many funeral homes in Georgia. I have known the people of Snow's Memorial Chapel for many years and they have always operated with integrity. My mother was the fourth member of my family to be buried by them."
