What Makes Us Different

Where "Extraordinary" is the Rule

At Herman-Taylor, we know that families are becoming increasingly disenchanted with the merely adequate.  They want only the best, most responsive service.  While some are looking for innovation, others seek the comfort of tradition, but all demand that we are a "cut above." At the core of everything we do, is this fundamental truth: we live up to every promise we make. 

Services for Today's Families 

We understand today's families.  It's just that simple.  Our commitment is to furnish them with only the exact services and products they desire - and that means listening closely to what our families are telling us.  Our staff then brings their knowledge and expertise to bear, to make all their funeral service decisions easier, and more affordable.  It would be a privilege to do the same for your family.  We have the knowledge and expertise to make all of your decisions of funeral service simple, affordable, and easy to understand.

Our FOCUS is on YOU 

When you call or come into our office, we focus all our energy on helping you.  Our goal is that you have only the exact type of funeral arrangements you desire - nothing less will do.  To make that happen, we make sure you have all the information you need to make the choices that are right for you and your family. 


The cost of our funeral services and merchandise continue to be among the most reasonable in our area.  While we are not the least expensive, we are certainly not the most expensive either.  We offer the ideal combination of price and quality - the highest value of personal care and quality services at an affordable price.


 The identification, preparation, and care of the deceased is the single most important aspect to our license as funeral directors and as a funeral home.  Our licensed professional staff takes the utmost care of the deceased and our care and preparation center is clean and well maintained.  When a family chooses cremation, you can be assured your loved one never leaves our care as our cremations are done at our own on-site cremation center.

Recognized for Excellence 

 In our desire to always live up to every one of our promises, we have truly raised the standards for excellence in funeral service. On October 19, 2015, Herman-Taylor Funeral Home was honored with the 2015 Pursuit of Excellence Award by the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) during its International Convention and Expo in Indianapolis, IN.  This is the second consecutive year we have earned this prestigious award given to less than 150 firms from around the world.  This recognition by our peers in funeral service places us among and elite group of funeral service professionals.  We have recently been informed that we will be receiving the 2016 Pursuit of Excellence Award as well.

We Care About Our Community 

Being hometown owned and operated means having a superior commitment to our community.  This is why we like to give back to our community through innovative programming, active community involvement and financial support of area churches, service clubs, schools and more.
