When it comes to selecting funeral homes, it is crucial to make the choice based on what will meet all of your requirements and accommodate additional and special requests that you would want for your departed loved one.
We at, Gentry Griffey Funeral Chapel & Crematory, can accommodate all your funeral home needs. We have been in the business since 1948 and have been regarded as the premier funeral home at North Knoxville. And sometime during 2012, our company became the first funeral home in the state to have a fully-operational on-site crematory.
Whether you are in favor of conventional funeral services or you are thinking of choosing a more modern funeral service such as cremation, we can offer it to you at the most competitive price. Now that we have provided you with a brief background of our company, it is now time to discuss what kind of services we are offering.
When someone you love dies, almost everyone in the family are in a state of shock and disbelief, making it harder for you to make decisions regarding how the funeral service should be. This is where we come in.
Gentry Griffey will be more than willing to guide and assist you through the entire process:
To give you an idea on the kind of service you will be getting from us, here are some of the things that our funeral homes can offer: assist in the processing of your loved ones death certificate, proper coordination with the church with regards to the funeral information such as date and time of burial or cremation, composition of obituaries that will be published on various newspapers and posted on-line through our official webpage, providing the customers with the wide-range of caskets, vaults and urns that they can choose from, suitable flower arrangements that will be displayed during the wake of your loved ones, plus conceptualization and production of a personalized DVD as remembrance of your departed family member’s celebration of life.
In addition, we can also assist in the filing of any claims or benefits that you can get from your departed family member’s social security or insurance claims. When it comes to funerals,
we pride ourselves of offering the most complete and comprehensive funeral service including the following:
- Embalming or the process of preserving the human physical remains with the treatment of chemicals that can delay decomposition
- Cremation or the process of exposing the remains to extreme heat resulting to the physical body burning and turning into ashes
- Visitation of family members and friends of the departed during wakes that can be done in our chapel or on-line using our official website
- The use of a hearse that will carry your loved one from our chapel to his final resting place
However, providing a good funeral service is only half of what we can offer:
The other half is about our cremation service. As mentioned earlier, we can be considered as the pioneer of having an on-site crematory inside our compound. Having our own crematory makes it easier for us to offer cremation to our clients as an option if they don’t want to bury their loved ones inside the cemetery.
It is important to remember that we are the only funeral home located in Knoxville that doesn’t need to use a crematory from nearby towns because the whole process is done right inside our compound and assisted by our highly-trained personnel.
Our crematory is also found right inside our compound that also includes a room that can be used for public viewing while cremation is underway. This is the reason why we both encourage and welcome family and friends to be present before the cremation process. No other funeral homes can offer this kind of service.
Generally-speaking, there are two factors that you have to consider when choosing a funeral home – funeral service and cremation service. There are some companies that only offer funeral services such as setting up everything that are necessary for a wake up to the burial. On the other hand, there are companies that only offer cremation.
At Gentry Griffey, we offer both! We do everything that we can to make sure that we can provide you the best service possible for your departed loved ones.
Our company is more than qualified to be one of the best funeral homes in the industry because it has all the requirements needed for a good funeral home such as convenience in location, wide range of services to choose from and affordable and competitive prices.
