"Our Family Serving Acadiana Since 1907"

Traditional, Cremation & Cemetery Services

Family of Care

 

Welcome to Melancon Funeral Home’s website.

We developed our website with our families in mind. It is our hope that you will use this site as a reference guide and also visit us often for updates on the services we provide. An important feature our site offers is the ability to obtain updated service information immediately after the arrangements are finalized. Current arrangements can also be e-mailed directly to your registered address using our unique e-mail update option.

Melancon Funeral Home was established in 1907. For over a century we have been serving families in Acadiana with dignity and respect that only a family owned funeral home can provide.

Our professional staff is dedicated to providing your family with personal funeral services, whether you choose a traditional funeral service, memorial service or cremation service. Thank you for visiting our website and as our logo states, “The Family of Care”, we invite you to see why we have been the leader in funeral service for 110 years.
