Memorable funeral services in Tampa
Our attentive funeral directors begin by listening to you. Inspire us with a treasured quote, trademark style or lifelong hobby, and we will work to incorporate it into a ceremony to be remembered by all who attend. Music selections range from timeless classical pieces to joyful contemporary tracks. Choose to receive a small gathering of family after the service, or entertain a large crowd in our flexible reception area beforehand. Select from a variety of catered fare, or share your family’s secret recipe for a personalized touch. Your imagination is our inspiration, and we will always do our best to accommodate each wish.

When Blount Henderson Funeral Home first opened its doors in 1913, Tampa was a small city on the rise. When Frazier T. Blount purchased an interest in the funeral home 4 years later, the F.T. Blount Company Funeral Home represented a change in name and ownership.
In that era, funeral homes usually operated out of small converted residences. In search of larger quarters, Mr. Blount purchased 2 homes on the northeast corner of Tyler and Marion Streets. One structure was converted to a funeral home, and the other became his family residence. An enclosed passageway connected the two facilities, creating Tampa's first funeral home staffed on a 24-hour basis.
Growth and expansion
In 1952, Mr. Blount retired and sold his business to 2 key employees, Henry Hale and Jack Yent Sr. Three years later, Hale and Yent built Tampa's first conventional funeral home on Nebraska Avenue. That building now houses the administrative offices and training center for our new employees, as well as continuing education classrooms for all personnel.
Over the years, numerous funeral homes from Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties joined the F.T. Blount family, including Curry & Son Funeral Home, founded by Mark Curry Jr. In late 2006, Terrace Oaks Chapel was added to serve families of Temple Terrace and the Tampa area. Today, 4 chapels proudly serve Tampa-area clients as members of the Blount & Curry family.
