Corporate vs Family-Owned

Is there any difference between a family owned funeral home, and a funeral home that is part of a corporate-owned chain?

Over the past several years, large multi-national organizations have been purchasing funeral homes at an alarming rate. The early nineties saw hundreds of family operated funerals homes across North America brought into the fold of large multi-national firms. The funeral profession has a long, proud history of personal service provided by generations of local families with deep roots in their community. Today there are many funeral service providers to choose from. What you may not know is that not all funeral homes are owned by local families. While they may have been operating in your community for years, and their names have not changed, some funeral homes have sold out to national and even international conglomerates. These funeral service conglomerates keep the original family name on their businesses because they know that at our greatest time of need you are more likely to turn to a local family you feel you can trust than to a national chain you know nothing about.


Is Miller Funeral Home & Crematory independently owned or is it operated by a large chain or corporation?

Miller Funeral Home is locally owned by the Miller Family and independently operated. We are not operated by a large public corporation.


Why are family-owned funeral homes the right choice?

Miller Funeral Home & Crematory is family owned and has a single focus; providing the best quality service and value to our families and friends.  We know that our success depends upon how we treat each and every family we serve.  It is our goal at Miller Funeral Home & Crematory not only to satisfy your needs but to exceed your expectations.

In your time of need, trust our family owned funeral home on Main Street, rather than one owned by Wall Street.
