McFarland Funeral Chapel provides funeral and cremation services to the families of Western North Carolina and to the Upstate of South Carolina. Our handicap accessible, Williamsburg style facility features a Chapel that seats 235 and large, tastefully decorated visitation rooms which can be divided for smaller gatherings or services. Our on-site crematory was one of the first serving Western North Carolina and the Upstate of South Carolina, assuring your loved one never leaves our care. From the traditional funeral to a simple gathering of remembrance, with prices to serve every family's needs, McFarland’s strives to provide meaningful services celebrating life. We encourage you to browse the many choices and information available.
