About Us

Our Story

In 1997 McDonald and Son Funeral Home and Crematory began serving the Cumming/Forsyth County area and surrounding communities. Sympathetic understanding and complete attention to detail have characterized our services.

Over the years we have had the privilege of serving many families from the Dahlonega, Lumpkin County and Dawson County area. So we committed to building a new state-of-the art funeral home in Dahlonega.

As a Division of the McDonald Family Funeral Homes at Dahlonega Funeral Home, we take pride in our profession and being able to provide any special services in a caring and comforting way before, during and after the service. When a family suffers the loss of a loved one it is comforting to know that the funeral director and staff will take the time to make your service unique, reflecting the loved one who has died.

While many families will consider traditional funerals,we also can provide a variety of cremation options. Our crematory, is located next to our sister funeral home, McDonald and Son Funeral Home in Cumming. Our professional staff operates it and we are certain, no other local funeral home can provide families as much comfort and peace of mind with cremation services.

As a family-owned and operated business, we know the importance of family. We are thankful for the support we receive and we appreciate the trust many have placed in Dahlonega Funeral Home. We pledge:

TO HELP families celebrate a life and mourn the loss of someone they loved;

TO PROVIDE caring, professional service to families experiencing a death;

TO SERVE families of all faiths and cultures with sensitivity and compassion;

TO DEVELOP a relationship of trust withand the community so that informed decisions can be made during times of vulnerability and emotional stress;

TO ENCOURAGE families to consider the value of pre-planning and pre-paying funeral arrangements; and

TO SERVE families as we would treat our own families with tenderness, dignity and respect.

We invite you to visit our beautiful funeral home and talk with our professional, caring staff about questions you may have about our facilities or our services.
