Thank you for visiting our web site. 
The John H. Taylor Funeral Home is dedicated to providing compassionate, dignified, affordable services. We are an independent, family owned and operated funeral home and we take pride in the fact that each family we serve is treated with the utmost respect.  We provide a wide range of services in price ranges to fit every budget and we give families the opportunity to arrange for personalized services for their loved one.


We are thankful for and have great respect for all the men and women who have served in our country's armed forces.

Did you know that honorably discharged veterans are entitled to military honors provided by an Honor Guard from his or her respective branch of service? In addition, a veteran may be buried in a National or State veterans cemetery at no charge for a grave space, outer burial container, opening and closing of the grave, and a monument?  If cremation is selected, a niche or space for cremated remains and a memorial plaque is offered free of charge in the chosen National or State veterans cemetery.  We can assist you with any of these options for honoring a veteran.

In addition to the National Cemeteries for Veterans that are located in Grafton and Pruntytown, WV now has a State Veterans Cemetery, the Donel Kinnard Memorial State Veterans Cemetery, that provides burial spaces for Veterans and making it more convenient for the families in the southern counties of West Virginia.


If you have already made pre-arrangements at another funeral home, and you would like to transfer those plans and funds to our funeral home, it's a simple and easy process that we can handle for you at no additional cost.  It makes no difference where the other funeral home is located, we can take care of all the aspects of the transfer.  All you need to do is call or stop by our office. 


If you have questions or need further free information regarding funeral services, pre-arrangements, memorial services, cremation, or monuments, send us an email or call us to schedule an appointment to meet in our office or in the convenience of your own home.
We welcome your questions or comments.
