Barky Wright

Owner/Funeral Director

A funeral is more than just a single day in a lifetime, it's a lifetime in a single day. Therefore, recognizing the trust placed in us, it is our commitment to treat each family with dignity, respect and compassion.

We will assist you in planning a traditional or memorial service that celebrates the life of your loved one and respects their, and your, wishes.

Independently owned and family operated, Wright Funeral Home & Crematory has been privileged to serve the residents of Franklin and surrounding communities in their historic Downtown Franklin location since 1976 and from their Southampton County location in Boykins since 1999. We offer traditional and cremation services and have our own on-site cremation facilities. We also have an on-site pet crematory for those pet parents who want professional care and individual pet cremation.

Wright Funeral Home & Crematory is on Facebook for an interactive way to communicate with the community,post obituaries, and share condolences.
