The Family and Staff of Barnum Funeral Home have been "Servants of the People Since 1905," and will continue to serve the Same Community with the Same Service. However, in the light of the COVID - 19 Pandemic, we will be implementing "Social Distancing" and other precautions at our facilities, following all the guidelines issued by the CDC for the funeral industry. We are currently designing more creative experiences to better serve our community by keeping us all safe. For more information, please call us and follow us on social media and on our website. God Bless and Keep us all.


Same Family. Same Community. Same Service.
