Austin & Bell Funeral Home added a private crematorium in March of 2016 --located at our newest funeral home in Hendersonville, Tennessee. As the demand for cremation has increased, owner Bob Bell wanted to give our families peace of mind by providing our own “on-site” cremation service. We guarantee that any family member entrusted to us will receive the utmost respect and dignity and will never leave our care. Austin and Bell offers families several options from a Complete Funeral Service (with cremation following) to a special Celebration of Life Service designed to remember the life of the individual.
Additionally, we take and save a thumbprint of the individual to be used for keepsake jewelry if desired. We have full size and keepsake urns on display in our selection rooms. Some families chose to scatter the cremated remains while others opt for burial at a cemetery or memorial garden. There are also options to be planted with a tree seedling or turned into a diamond or an ocean reef.
