Our Story


With a passion, commitment and calling to serve grieving families in their time of losing of loved one, Tim Pounders, wife- Dawn Pounders along with his parents Bro. E.G. and Betty Pounders began construction of Lowndes Funeral Home and opened on August 1, 1997. During the initial construction it was very important to provide most spacious facilities and have the most abundant parking for the families we would serve. Our 11,500 square foot facilities at this time would include a front foyer/lobby, an office area, conference room, casket selection room, preparation rooms, coffee room, two spacious parlors, a 200 seating capacity chapel, and vehicle garage.

On January 1, 2007, in a continuing effort to provide the best service to our families, Lowndes Funeral Home constructed a cremation facility. We now offer cremation services with Lowndes County's ONLY on-site crematory. Until this construction, no other funeral home within a 60 mile radius of Columbus, MS was able to provide on-site cremation. In August 2012, we completed an expansion which includes additional offices and Pre-Need Counseling/Ministers Room. This is in addition to our 200 seating capacity Chapel, On-site crematory, spacious parking and handicap accessibility. In 2016, we completed an additional expansion to our cremation facility, in an on-going effort to provide the best facilities in the area.

At Lowndes Funeral Home and Crematory we are continually updating our facilities and sharpening our skills in order to provide, the families we have the honor of serving, the best and most professional experience during a time of sorrow.

We invite you to visit us at your convenience and experience how truly dedicated Lowndes Funeral Home & Crematory is to serving you and your family.
