BRENTWOOD – Austin Funeral & Cremation Services is celebrating five years as a family owned and operated firm. The business, located on Maryland Way, has served nearly 300 families since its founding. “It’s been a sincere privilege to serve the families of our community and to reach out to people during some of the darkest days of their lives,” owner Carol Austin said. “There is truly no greater honor than to help families celebrate the lives of their loved ones.”

Several family members worked years for corporately owned funeral homes in Brentwood and Nashville. In April 2007, the Austin family was able to realize a dream of opening a family owned and operated establishment.

Austin Funeral & Cremation Services staff meet families in their homes or a location that is convenient for the family to make funeral arrangements. While families may choose to meet at the offices located in Mary land Farms, most people prefer the comfort and ease of meeting in their own home. “We strive to go the extra mile to heal each family create a personalized service and we ensure the deceased is treated with respect and dignity, “Austin said.

Since the funeral home opened, the Austins also have experienced their own personal loss in the deaths of Rick, Milton and Libby Austin. Both Rick and Milton were founding partners of Austin Funeral & Cremation Services. “We miss them every day but their legacy lives on as we continue to care for other families of the community with the same compassion they did,” Carol Austin said.

Austin Funeral & Cremation Services is a fully licensed, full service funeral establishment. For more information, call 615-377-0775 or visit
