As you are aware, we all find ourselves in extraordinary circumstances, coming together to ensure the health and safety our families, neighbors, and communities as the COVID- 19 pandemic continues to escalate. There is a collective need for the funeral and cemetery profession to take steps for keeping families, guests, staff, and others safe so that you can enable families to participate in memorial events that are of uppermost importance to them.

When visiting our facilities, we ask that you please wear a mask, practice social distancing and CDC Guidelines, wash/sanitize your hands frequently, cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing, check your temperature daily, and stay home if your are showing any symptoms of COVID-19.

Should you have any questions, please contact one of our funeral directors or staff members for more information. 

Why Choose Watson-North Funeral Home & Cremation Center?

On the escalating cost of funeral service: the cost of funeral services to the consumer has increased significantly in the last decade due to the consolidation of funeral business and the overbuilding of funeral homes by individual owners. Many times former owner's or their families regret selling a funeral home and build a low budget funeral home to compete with the old business.  

Simply put, at Watson - North Funeral Home & Cremation Center we are not a "Discount" funeral home that cuts corners or services to serve your family.  We are proud of the fact that we offer the finest in facilities in Franklin County as well as service that will exceed your expectations.  In addition we are not a bonus based business, nor do we have sales quotas to meet in effort to receive a bonus check, therefore what a family can afford to spend is dependent on the family. Never would we want a family to overspend on funeral service cost or put a financial burden on a family in a time of grief.

Americans believe in funerals, but want better value. This is not a new idea, just an old idea whose time has come around again. Fifty years ago, visitations and funerals were held in a home or church or a modest funeral home facility. By keeping the overhead low, the funeral home was able to offer attentive services at a modest price.

Now, Watson - North Funeral Home & Cremation Center is bringing funeral service full circle by renewing old and sensible traditions. We are convinced that offering services at a fair price to families not only makes sense, but is an ethical obligation.

What Our Families Are Saying...

Sometimes you know you are losing someone; sometimes it happens in the blink of an eye. Unprepared, shattered, overwhelmed - that is how my family and I came to Watson-North. How were we met? With love, compassion, and understanding. As the Lord held my mind, heart, and body, Doris held my hand. As the pain of my tears flowed, Tommy cried with me and alone because of me. As I could not think or process, Josh made midnight runs to florists to create loving, endless bouquets. Each member of the North family stayed late, arrived early, and loved my entire family through one of the worst days of our lives. Over this past year, while we all suffered with the constraints and restrictions of the pandemic, Doris happily assisted with our monument decisions and final placement. Goodbyes are not easy and the many issues involved can be quite a complicated process; the North family patiently guided us along to completion. Financially, we were offered all available options, no one in my family felt pressure to do anything - all decisions were ours. This chapter of my painful odyssey is now complete. Thank you Doris, Tommy, and Josh. I will never forget each of you and all the support, kindness, respect, and genuine understanding so freely given.

Kim Hyde, mother of William Taylor
