Anderson Funeral Home is family owned And operated in the historic district in Gallatin,Tennessee, on 202 East Main Street, across from First Baptist Church and next door to The Gallatin Church of Christ. Some will remember the late, John R. Harris and his son-in-law, Royce Donoho and wife, Fannie, operating this facility. Some will remember Newby's operating this funeral home several years back. This building is over 100 years old and has been operated as a funeral home since 1912, with the exception of five years.
Phillip and Shirley Anderson purchased the property in April of 2013 and spent the next five months completely restoring the building to its original beauty, decorated with antiques that give it a vintage home atmosphere, with the addition of additional parking on the side of the building extending all the way over to College Street with five entrances to the funeral home that people can come in for convenience. There has been many new additions brought onto our facility since our purchase of the location. The lounge is completely updated, with beautiful state rooms completely equipped and two front offices. We refinished some of the original hardwood floors on the first floor and the upstairs throughout the funeral home. We also have a large display room for families to get a close view of the merchandise they may be interested in. Anderson Funeral Home has a very large chapel with digital audio and video for our families. The interior of the building is completely painted in vintage colors, decorated by Shirley Anderson and her personal artwork displayed throughout it.
The Anderson's have been in the funeral business for 40 years and have held a tradition for fair competitive pricing, pride, quality service, respect,dignity, and understanding. That is what we have always stood for and our family plan is to always be here for you.
It's not every day that you can find employees dedicated to their profession. We are blessed to have Damon W. Hobbs, Funeral Director/Embalmer, who worked with us when we had Anderson & Anderson Funeral Home in Gallatin. Damon, his wife, Meredith and their two girls have remained residents of Gallatin going on 17 years now. His father was in the funeral business. He knows many in Gallatin, having served on several boards and very active in the Gallatin Rotary Club. We also have Jessica M. Law, our apprentice Funeral Director/Embalmer. She is also crematory certified. Jessica has just graduated from John A. Gupton College of Mortuary Science and will be serving her apprenticeship with us. She has recently moved to the area for her education, and we are happy to have her as part of the family.
It is good to have those locally you can count on in some of your hardest times. We try to take the action off you during this time and bring together services that you will be proud of to have some degree of closure.
