Cremation services in Tampa

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 use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or 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

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 four 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 two 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 two 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, four chapels proudly serve Tampa-area clients as members of the Blount & Curry family.
