Our Story

Since 1997, McDonald and Son Funeral Home and Crematory has been serving the Cumming/Forsyth County area and surrounding communities. Sympathetic understanding and complete attention to detail have characterized our services. We take pride in our profession and being able to provide any special services in a caring and comforting way before, during and after the service.

When a family suffers the loss of a loved one it is comforting to know that the funeral director and staff will take the time to make your service unique, reflecting the loved one who has died.

While many families will consider traditional funerals, we were aware that there was a need for an on-site crematory in the Forsyth County area. So, in July of 2002, we opened the first modern, state of the art cremation facility (housed in a specially designed building) next to our funeral home.

Our professional staff operates it and we are certain, no other local funeral home can provide families as much comfort and peace of mind with cremation services. As a family-owned and operated business, we know the importance of family. We are thankful for the support we receive and we appreciate the trust many have placed in McDonald and Son Funeral Home and Crematory. We pledge: 

HELP families celebrate a life and mourn the loss of someone they loved; 

PROVIDE caring, professional service to families experiencing a death; 

SERVE families of all faiths and cultures with sensitivity and compassion;

DEVELOP a relationship of trust within the community so that informed decisions can be made during times of vulnerability and emotional stress;

 ENCOURAGE families to consider the value of pre-planning and pre-paying funeral arrangements; and 

SERVE families as we would treat our own families with tenderness, dignity and respect.

We invite you to visit our beautiful funeral home and talk with our professional, caring staff about questions you may have about our facilities or our services.
