Our Story

FRENCH  Funerals & Cremations, Albuquerque's largest and oldest family-owned funeral service company, was founded by Chester T. French in 1907. His tradition of caring for New Mexico families began at Fifth Street and Gold Avenue in downtown Albuquerque and continues today at our five locations across Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.         

We are one of the few remaining locally-owned and operated funeral and cremation businesses serving this community.  Currently the FRENCH Family of Companies has four owners:

Chester French Stewart, Chairman Emeritus and grandson of Mr. French

D.F. "Duffy" Swan, Chairman 

Tom E. Antram, President and CEO 

Robert H. Stewart, grandson of Mr. French
