Our History

Our History

Grant Memorial Chapel has served the Town of Grant, Marshall County, and surrounding areas since 1990. Grant Memorial Chapel offers a wide range of funeral services, both traditional and non-traditional, including cremations at the on-site crematory at our sister funeral home, Guntersville Memorial Chapel. Our services and support do not end at the graveside. We continue to assist the family in whatever their particular situation requires.

Before need is the time to inquire about funeral arrangements. Pre-arranging a funeral often provides peace of mind for both the individual and family members. Call to schedule an appointment to discuss pre-arranging your funeral services.
