Families Serving Families…for Over 80 Years
Since 1935, our funeral home has been serving the people of Columbia and surrounding areas during their most difficult moments. Since our family caught the baton from the Williams family in 1982, we have made it our goal to provide our neighbors with memorable tributes at prices they can afford. With more people desiring a simpler, more affordable farewell, cremation is now surpassing traditional burial rates for the first time in the U.S. That’s why we founded Cremation Society of Tennessee, and we have quickly become the premier simple cremation resource in this area.
Cremation Society of Tennessee is committed to providing professional, dignified, affordable services to families who prefer cremation. When you choose us, we want to honor the trust you have placed in us, so we hold ourselves to the highest standards of care. Our thorough, time-tested cremation protocols will give you peace of mind and ensure your loved one receives the very best care.
