About Us

Thank you for visiting us on the web.

Gentry Griffey Funeral Chapel and Crematory has been the premier North Knoxville Funeral Home since 1948. In 2012, we became the only funeral home in Knox County to operate an on-site crematory. Whether you are in need of traditional funeral options or cremation services, we can accommodate any need, and any budget.

We pride ourselves on providing high-level, professional service at a very economical value. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you about pre-arrangement, or to transfer your pre-arrangement from another funeral home.

A 64-year tradition for funeral and cremation services in the Knoxville, TN and surrounding areas, we are proud to serve your family and our community.

We are here for you when you need us. Please contact us with questions, for more information, or to arrange a tour of our beautiful Fountain City funeral home. Call us at (865) 689-4481 or email [email protected]
