Being a funeral director is more than a profession; it is a calling. That calling goes back generations and is so strong. In our it case commanded us to take back the family firm from a corporation.
It’s about families helping families—and not about corporations and profit. When meeting our owners, you’ll meet people that live in your community, worship at your churches, and buy groceries at the same places you do. It’s not just a commitment to the community— we are part of the community. A message is offered below in an open letter from the principals of our firm:
Funerals have become so expensive in Indiana, that most people struggle to pay for them. We had an opportunity to do something about that when I bought our former family funeral business, Harry W. Moore Funeral Chapels, back from a large company. My Uncle Harry established the business on the near northeast side of Indianapolis in 1927 and it was sold to a large company years after his death.
I bought the business in 2001 from that large company with a business plan and personal conviction to offer quality funeral and cremation services at much lower prices. In order to do so, we cut the overhead by selling all but one funeral home, changing the staff and training them differently and buying different caskets and cremation equipment at much better prices. We were then able to cut prices in half, offer simple funeral and cremation packages and provide those services in a place of personal significance to you and families throughout the State of Indiana, in your church, your Legion or VFW Post, a public building in your community.
We named it ‘Indiana Funeral Care and Crematory’ and it has grown significantly as more people learn they do have an alternative to high-priced funerals from traditional funeral homes. Indiana Funeral Care and Crematory is honored to have the exclusive endorsement of The American Legion, Department of Indiana and to be recommended by many hospices nurses and social workers, chaplains, priests and ministers.
You have our commitment; quality, personal service at a difficult time, for thousands of dollars less than traditional funeral homes.
Simple, Respectful, Sensible… anywhere in Indiana.
