McDowell County's Only Locally Owned Funeral Homes

Marion (828) 652-3161
Old Fort (828) 668-3161

Westmoreland Funeral Home & Crematory is a locally owned and operated firm committed to helping you celebrate your life, or the life of one you love with a funeral or memorial service in keeping with the values and principles you hold dear.  As a family owned firm, and with Jim Gibson at the helm as the third generation of the Westmoreland family, we are positioned to provide your family with the compassionate care you expect from a locally owned funeral establishment. 

As the only funeral home in McDowell County with an on-site crematory, we are proud to be able to assure the families we serve that our cremation facility is used only for the families we personally serve and that your loved one is not transported to some unknown facility in a far-off place.  So, unlike many area crematories, we are not interested in how many cremations we can do but, rather, how well we can serve the families who entrust us with this choice of final arrangements.

Westmoreland Funeral Home & Crematory will also be there for you if you choose to plan your funeral or cremation or service in advance. Planning ahead is a caring and sensible act that can remove much of the burden on the ones you love.  It’s plain to see that making decisions now about your final arrangements can assure the family you leave behind that the choices you made in life are honored at your passing.

Westmoreland Funeral Home and Crematory in Marion and Westmoreland Funeral Service and Cremations in Old Fort, McDowell County’s leading funeral service provider, prepared to provide your family with superior service and care when it matters most.

My family, friends, & all involved were completely satisfied with the services by Westmoreland. Everything went very smoothly considering the circumstance. One consideration in selecting Westmoreland was parking accessibility. The staff was very courteous, compassionate, & professional.
