UPDATE: 
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Message to Funeral and Cemetery Professionals
Gatherings Shall Not Be Ten (10) Or More People
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.
In response to public health concerns regarding the number of people in social gatherings, direction is included in Executive Order No. 17 issued on Sunday, March 22, 2020 by Governor Bill Lee. To limit the spread of COVID-19 so that normal life and activities may resume as soon as possible, the Governor has ordered that persons in the State of Tennessee shall not participate in social gatherings of ten (10) or more people. Those social gatherings include but are not limited to visitations, funerals, or other memorial events and burial of deceased humans (whether these are held at a funeral establishment, church, cemetery or other facility). Executive Order No. 17 shall be effective and enforceable and shall remain in effect until 12:01 a.m., Central Daylight Time, on April 6, 2020, at which time the suspension of any state laws and rules and other provisions of this Order shall cease and be of no further force or effect.
Please seek alternative business practices during this disruption and look for innovative methods for your businesses. While listening to funeral and cemetery professionals, we have been made aware of great concepts and thoughtful ways to serve families.

FAQ’s



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...

Tommy and Doris North are the most caring and compassionate people I have ever met. They are truly ministering to the families they come in contact with. They have gone above and beyond to help us understand how the process works and are even helping us with other needs. Thank you is an inadequate statement- they will never know how much we appreciate them and their love they show to families during their time of grief.
