Our Story

French Funerals & Cremations was founded in 1907 by Chester T. French, and continues to be one of the largest and longest-running funeral homes in Albuquerque, NM. Our mission when we began remains the same today: To honor and remember every life with dignity and compassion, and to guide families in New Mexico through the difficult journey of loss.

Our Services

The French Family of Companies is the only full service continuum of care establishment in our community. With our Albuquerque funeral homes, Rio Rancho funeral homes, cemetery, pet cremation services and cremation society, we are experts with over a century of dedicated service to our local communities. We help families remember and memorialize their loved ones according to your own customs, traditions and beliefs.

We offer a full selection of:

  • Funeral and memorial services, and celebrations of life ranging from traditional to uniquely innovative and personal
  • Burial services and cremation options
  • Celebrant Services

Although there are many decisions you may have to make, we assure you that we will guide you through the process every step of the way. We promise to help you:

  • Design the most fitting memorial or funeral service to honor their memory and pay tribute to their life achievements and experiences
  • Select the most appropriate products, including a casket, burial vault, cremation urn, cemetery or mausoleum, to fit your budget and suit your needs and desires
  • Write a fitting obituary to honor your loved one’s life experiences and social connections
  • Assist in the publication of the obituary in the newspapers of your choice
  • Welcome your family and friends to our funeral home for your planned services, including a viewing, visitation, funeral or memorial service
  • Make all arrangements with regard to the services whether they are held at your place of worship, our funeral home, cemetery, or alternate gathering place
  • Provide you with beautiful print materials, including memorial folders, prayer cards, and book marks. We also offer personalized note cards for you to acknowledge the emotional support you received from friends, co-workers, and community members
  • Provide an elegant hearse and funeral cars, as well as arrange for escorts
  • Help in the selection and on-site arrangement of floral tributes
  • Provide access to grief education and support materials, and referrals to counseling services

We also offer online memorials to share with family and friends, a touching tribute video to keep and play at the services or part of an online memorial, and helpful services such as daily grief support emails.
