Henderson & Sons purchases Oaknoll Chapel in West Rome

August 16, 2018--9:30 a.m.


The Henderson Family of funeral homes is growing once again.

On Thursday’s Hometown Headlines Radio Edition, Barry Henderson announced the purchase of the Oaknoll Chapel Funeral Home on Shorter Avenue.

“This funeral home has changed hands many times since 1997 when Service Corporation International built it to compliment their cemetery,” he said. “At the time they owned the Memorial Garden Cemeteries, but it has changed hands so many times and people have done pre-arrangements and pre-funded funerals. We want to assure those families that everything will be taken care of just as it is written.”

Even contracts written at the old Heritage Chapel on North Broad Street will be honored.

Henderson said the sale closed on Wednesday.

“Geographically, this so much more convenient, especially for those who already have plans across the street at Oaknoll Memorial Gardens,” Henderson added. “This is just a convenient location, and it’s a spacious, modern facility. So, we’re excited to offer this under the umbrella of Henderson & Sons Funeral Homes.”

Oaknoll Chapel is now Henderson & Sons third location, along with the original site in Lindale and the North Chapel and Crematory in Armuchee.
