Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since Mr. Marvin Walker opened the doors to Walker's Funeral Home and Crematory of Mebane in 1946, we have approached life (and death) differently. We understand the joys and the challenges of the many relationships that touch so many lives. It isn’t just our training that helps us to understand, it's also because of the fact that these relationships so profoundly touch us too. The mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, friends, neighbors and co-workers that all of you are- we are too.

Through the ups, the downs and everywhere in between, we are not just your funeral home, we are your guides and support. We are your trusted confidantes and your family away from home, wherever life’s journey may take you.

For over 70 years, Walker’s Funeral Home  and Crematory of Mebane has specialized in providing the very best in care. From our opening in 1946, to present day, we have upheld the very important traditions of the past and developed new and innovative traditions of the present and future.

With an emphasis on functionality, comfort and aesthetics, our facility on 304 West Center Street in Mebane was completely reconstructed from 2016 to 2018. Our spacious chapel and visitation room, family conference room, merchandise selection center and reception room are just a few of the many details that we have included for your ease and comfort. Since opening for the public in February of 2018, we have redesigned aspects of our service offerings, ensuring that we always meet the growing needs of every person and every family that we serve.
