An important notice concerning Covid-19 and Funeral Services

Because we are committed to the families, friends of the family and the communities we serve Melancon Funeral Home will be sharing the responsibility to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus within our communities.

The virus is mostly spread through gatherings of people in an environment where there is close contact with an infected person. It is recommended that the elderly, anyone with underlying health conditions or compromised immune systems to not go out in social gatherings.

We will be following recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Governor Edward’s Public Health Emergency Proclamation. Visitation and Funeral Services shall be limited a total of 4 hours. A private or semi-private service limit of 10 family and friends. The Diocese of Lafayette will allow their priest to only do graveside services with only the immediate family present.

Our funeral home’s normal business hours have not changed. We will continue to be available for arrangement conferences, pre-need funeral plans, post funeral consultations, cemetery needs or any other services families may require. As always, our staff is available 24 hours a day should families need assistance.

As the situation changes, we will keep you informed.

Gerald Melancon, President

 

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.
