If you are considering cremation, you should know that Natchez Trace Funeral Home owns and operates a private crematory to serve our client families. Our crematory is on site and located within our funeral home. We do not contract our cremations to a third party cremation provider, nor do we offer cremations to other funeral service providers. Our crematory is for the exclusive purpose of serving the families of Natchez Trace Funeral Home. We have nothing to hide. Our doors are open. We explain your options and respect your wishes. We will return ALL the recoverable ashes and operate by the most exacting standards to protect the integrity of the deceased. The tragedy in Noble, Georgia involved funeral directors who did not own and operate the crematory. We offer service 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
