Personalized funeral services

Reception room at Elliott Sons Funeral HomeThe experienced staff at Elliott Sons Funeral Home is committed to exceeding your expectations and delivering a standard of service that is unmatched in the region. We are here to help you through one of the more personal, emotional and challenging stages of life, guiding you patiently every step of the way. Our foremost goal—whether you are planning a funeral for a loved one or planning ahead for yourself—is to help create a unique and memorable tribute that reflects the special qualities of an individual.

Truly personalized services are a hallmark of Elliott Sons Funeral Home. We'll help you explore favorite music, hobbies, flowers, philosophies and passions to strike just the right note for yourself or your loved one. We can help you with an obituary, arrange displays of photographs and memorabilia, coordinate military honors for veterans, help you choose a monument, organize a processional and more. No request is too small or too large for us to consider. In other words, we celebrate life.

We understand that losing a loved one is a difficult experience. We are committed to helping our families with compassionate, professional and personal service.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We operate a private, on-site crematory and work with trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

History

R.E. Elliott Sr. started our funeral home in 1896 and nurtured it until it became one of the largest in the area. His first location was above his furniture store on Broad Street and later moved to 11th and Ellis Street, eventually migrating to Telfair Street.

As the first funeral director in Georgia to use motorized funeral hearses, R.E. was a pioneer in the industry. His profession brought him into contact with families from all over the area and his tenderness endeared him to the hearts of many.

Elliott Sons Funeral Home opened our Columbia Road location in 1994. Crematory services remained at the Telfair Street location and moved to Columbia Road in 2003.

"Only problem was several scammers hacked into your system, and were calling me demanding money. They had heavy foreign accents, and I knew they were not from your funeral home. When I falsely told them I would like to bring them the money, they stopped calling"
