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.
