Funeral home reopens with new name

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The EMBDC hosted a grand reopening Thursday for the newly named Barham Funeral Home Forest Lawn Chapel.

Barham Funeral Home was closed for two years before the decision was made last year to reopen for business with a new name.

Representatives say Barham Funeral Home is unique because it can have funeral services on the same property with the cemetery.

"We're pretty much, I guess you can call it, a full service funeral industry because you can actually buy your cemetery plots, you can get your grave markers, you can have all the services as far as what's being held at the funeral home at the chapel," said funeral director, Joe Tew.

Barham Funeral Home is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
