Many funeral homes and cemeteries are owned by public companies, with distant headquarters, who answer to stockholders, not families. In addition, there are way too many companies who simply do not connect in relevant ways with the communities they serve. Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services is a privately-owned company. Our team-members live where you live. Our children go to school with yours. We shop where you shop. Maybe we even attend the same church. Our community is your community. You know us… and we know you. Our commitment to serving and actively connecting with our communities means that decisions are made locally, based upon local needs, customs, and traditions. It means that we are able to focus on a truly personal and meaningful approach, rather than a cookie-cutter way of doing things.
