History

Roane County’s Funeral Home Since 1914

 

In 1914, the Vandale Funeral Home began serving Roane County’s funeral needs with a Main Street location. The business moved in 1929 to its present location on Beauty Street, in what was formerly the Roane County Hospital and later the Lowe Hotel.

 

Since 1929, the funeral home has undergone extensive remodeling and renovation, always with serving our customers in mind. A portion of the original porch was enclosed in the 1950’s to create an indoor lounge area, wings were added to the structure so that the building would be handicapped-accessible, and in the early 1970s an additional memorial chapel, which seats 200, was added to handle the growing business.

 

Properties adjacent to the funeral home were purchased and converted into large, lighted parking area and a garage, monument room was constructed next to the funeral home.

 

In addition to the building itself, many other changes were made over the years and now a wide variety of casket colors, styles, and materials are available to meet most everyone’s needs.

 

A full line of burial vaults is available as well as a beautiful section of granite and bronze memorials.

 

As we begin another year, we take this opportunity to thank all of our many friends for their support over the past 100 years. We changed our name to Taylor-Vandale Funeral Home in 1995 in efforts to reflect the current ownership while retaining the Vandale name you have counted on for all of these years. Not affiliated with any other funeral home, locally or nationally, we remain committed to providing courteous, friendly and caring service...just like we have since 1914.

 

A lot of things have changed in Roane County over the past 100 years, but one thing has not...

 

“We are, and will be, here when you need us.”
