Our History

We are a Funeral Home in Maryville Tennessee specializing in cremation services that are simple, respectable, and affordable. Since 1922, families in Blount County have honored their loved ones on the 60-acre estate of  Grandview Cemetery.

Now, your family can select Cremation by Grandview...a new convenient choice, at a much lower cost, by people that have been trusted by families for over 90 years.

Cremation by Grandview assists families who need another alternative other than traditional funeral services. If you should need a simple, yet dignified, cremation without formal funeral ceremonies, Cremation by Grandview is a wise choice. We can even provide a permenant and safe place for your cremated remains - with or without ceremony. It is your choice.

We are proud to offer this new, more affordable way to pay tribute to lives well lived. Please call us 865-806-8170 for more information about all the commemorative choices we offer.
