Custom funeral celebrations
We believe that funeral services should reflect the lives of those being honored and strive to create meaningful tributes to those who have meant so much. Our caring team welcomes the opportunity to hear your cherished stories, which may include your loved one's interests, hobbies and accomplishments. As we listen, we'll offer ideas and create a service that truly captures their legacy. All of our funeral and memorial services are designed to promote healing and help families through this difficult experience.
In addition, we're happy to assist with writing obituaries, creating photo slideshows and DVDs, and scheduling visitation and catered events. At Hargrave Funeral Home, grieving families can surround themselves with family and friends while honoring their loved ones.
Today, many families have concerns and questions about funeral costs. Our team understands these needs, which is why we offer the ability to plan funerals and cremations in advance. Preparing for these services can ease financial burden, ensures your wishes are met and provides your family with peace of mind.
We welcome you
Our team invites you to visit us and see the unique services offered. While here, you are welcome to tour Hargrave Funeral Home, seeing firsthand our spacious chapel, modern event room and ambient café. We're honored to offer everything you need to celebrate life and receive compassionate local care.
Housed in what was once the Guarantee Bank and later a local teen center, Hargrave Funeral Home was founded by Joseph “Joe” and Bernice Hargrave in 1989. It was later sold to Cliff Ourso, who owned Ourso Funeral Homes of Pierre Part, Donaldsonville, White Castle and Gonzales.
That transition eventually led to Hargrave joining the Dignity Memorial® network, which allows our funeral directors and team to offer personalized funeral and cremation services in St. Mary Parish.
Today, Hargrave Funeral Home plans thoughtful funeral and memorial services for families in St. Mary Parish. We offer comfort and compassionate service to families in need while evolving with our community.
