MELANCON FUNERAL HOME - OUR HISTORY

Melancon Funeral Home - Chapel Location

Established in 1907 by Edmond Melancon, Sr., the funeral home has been locally owned and managed by a member of the Melancon Family since its inception, serving families in Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin and Acadia Parishes. We are one of the oldest continuing family owned funeral firm in Southwest Louisiana and the first Funeral Home-Cemetery Combination in Lafayette Parish. During our century of service, four generations of the Melancon family have served the people of Acadiana.

Members of our staff are required to attend continuing education seminars each year in order to uphold the highest standards in funeral service that families have come to expect from us.

Evangeline Memorial Gardens, an affiliate, received its Certificate of Authority to operate a perpetual care cemetery in Carencro, Louisiana from the Louisiana Cemetery Board on February 3, 1988. The cemetery offers outstanding features such as paved roads with curb and underground drainage, concrete walks, underground sprinkler system, a computerized record keeping system and a beautifully designed mausoleum. The cemetery is unique in its own way, which allows a family to honor the life of those whose memory should not be forgotten.

Melancon Funeral Home offers traditional funeral services, funeral merchandise, cremation services, urns, memorial services, pre-arranged funerals, limousine service, and other funeral related products and services.
