On-site crematory

A private on-site crematory, which means your loved one never leaves our care. Cremation is important in certain religions and cultures, and more and more people are choosing cremation over more traditional burial options, but most people aren’t familiar with all of their choices when it comes to cremation. You may choose a direct cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind; a funeral with the body present, followed by cremation; or a cremation followed by a cemetery service or a celebration of life.

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.
