Crossville Memorial Funeral Home was founded in September of 1986 by Robert Grimsley with the support of family and friends in the local community. They had a desire to provide an economical funeral experience for the bereaved and a dream came to fruition. In 2006, a crematory was added creating another option for the public to celebrate their loved ones life. In 2010, the need for a more efficient crematory became evident and in 2011 a new one was built. The original one became a pet crematory in 2012, incorporating a viable service to the community with which to put pets to rest locally and for pet memorialization. Crossville Memorial Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc. holds a staff of three funeral directors, two embalmers, and two crematory operators.
