The Honor of Serving Families


Gentry Griffey Funeral Chapel and Crematory has been serving the needs of Knoxville families since 1948. During that time, we have assisted families through one of life’s most difficult processes: losing a loved one.

While this is our business, it is so much more than that. We believe that the services we provide extend beyond that of a regular business. We are honored and humbled when a family chooses us to assist them with their funeral pre-planning or arrangement needs.

We recognize the delicate nature of the funeral process and it is our desire to offer East Tennessee families and individuals the utmost care, respect and compassion during the challenging situation of the loss of a family member, spouse or friend.

Gentry Griffey staff and leadership also understands the importance of respecting the grieving process. We know that everyone deals with loss in his or her own unique way. And we believe that each life is entitled to be remembered and honored in a way that fits with the individual’s and/or family’s wishes.

This is why we offer a wide variety of funeral and celebration of life memorial options. We are here for you. We want to make this time a little bit easier for you and we appreciate the opportunity to serve your family and our community.
