About French Funerals-Cremations, Inc.

Chester T. French moved to New Mexico from Tennessee in 1904, in hopes that the arid climate would help cure his brother’s tuberculosis. His brother succumbed to his disease, but Chester fell in love with the beautiful city and its people, anddedicated himself to helping families in their times of need. He opened French Mortuary in 1907 in downtown Albuquerque at the corner of 5th and Central. Twenty-two years later, he established the first perpetual care cemetery in New Mexico, Sunset Memorial Park, a non-profit 501(c)(13) facility.

Today, French Funerals & Cremations is the largest and oldest family-owned funeral company in the greater Albuquerque area. Along with four locations to better serve our communities, French Funerals provides a full-service continuum of care for families in their time of need.

It is our legacy and our calling to continue to serve families during one of the most difficult milestones in life, and to help them honor their loved ones with dignity, compassion, and a deep respect for their needs and unique pathways through grief.
