Our History

Our History

We are the first funeral home in the McCalla area, but not new to the funeral industry. Our state of the art facility provides comfortable and safe surroundings with ample parking. Our interior design offers a feeling of peace and tranquility to help you through a difficult time in your life. The staff of McCalla Memorial Home adheres to the "Circle of Care" philosophy.

The "Circle of Care" best states our philosophy-

"It is our goal that each family we serve feels as though they are a part of our family and that the decisions made are treated with respect and dignity to best celebrate the life of their loved one. Providing overwhelming, personal, seamless service is our number one priority - before, during, and after the funeral."

Thank you for visiting our website and please feel free to explore the other pages of our site to learn more about us. In addition, please feel free to call or come by to meet our staff and tour our new facilities.
