We are in close proximity to Memphis cemeteries including Memorial Gardens and Memphis Memory Gardens and work closely with all local cemetery locations.

Newly Renovated Facilities

Chapel at Family Funeral CareHonoring your loved ones is at the center of what we do, and our recent remodel focuses on providing as much comfort as possible to grieving families. Our spaces provide a stately, warm and modern feel, with elegant, classic wood and soft finishes, including wood flooring throughout. Our red brick exterior offers an inviting welcome to guests.

Our renovated chapel has seating for nearly two hundred attendees, with the ability to convert our lobby areas for additional overflow seating. The reception room is a welcoming space for families to gather for luncheons and receptions, and our visitation rooms offer the flexibility for comfortable seating areas for family and friends to gather in smaller, more intimate groups or can be combined into one larger room.

"Family Funeral Care helped so much during a difficult time. Even though we could not prepay for dad's funeral, we did come in and do some pre planning so we knew more what to expect when the time did come and made the process go much more smoothly."

"Nothing can prepare a parent for losing their child, even if the child is grown and made poor choices that ultimately led to his untimely death. I am at least comforted by how he was prepared for viewing. The nature of his passing led me to decide against a traditional service for no other reason than I wanted to keep it simple and for immediate family only. For such a simple procedure, my son was still prepared with dignity and detailed attention."
