Personalized service is the hallmark of Austin Funeral & Cremation Services, located at 5115 Maryland Way, serving Brentwood, Nashville and Franklin. Austin offers a full and affordable range of services relating to funerals, cremations and burials, ranging from caskets and vaults to urns to stationary products.

“We hang our hat on personalized service,” says owner and licensed funeral director Carol Austin. “We treat customers like family or how we’d want our family treated. The same person you start with to make arrangements is the same person you’ll see at the visitation and service and will guide you all the way through.”

Austin says she and her staff usually go to a family’s home to begin making arrangements. “When you’ve been up all night with someone who has passed away, it’s hard, so we take that step out of them having to come to us. Planning a service is difficult at best. There are a lot of details that go into it. We try to make it as easy as possible.”

Prearranged services have become more popular in recent years, according to Austin. Customers can plan ahead and also pay in advance. “That fixes the cost. If costs go up, you still have all the services and merchandise at the same cost.”

Austin Funeral & Cremation Services, which began in 2007, is locally and independently owned with a staff of caring, understanding professionals who have years of experience in the funeral business. More information is available at
