Carriage Services Announces the Acquisition of Heritage Funeral and Cremation Services and Forest Lawn East Cemetery
“When we started considering our options for a succession plan, we knew exactly the type of company we had in mind. We wanted a company that would respect us and what our team had built and would allow us the flexibility to continue operating as we always had to achieve our goals and serve our families. We were able to find all that and more with Carriage and the transition has been seamless thanks to their approach in blending us into their operation. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for all of us,” stated
"As we have gotten to know Harris and Carolyn, we have had the good fortune to learn more about their passion for Heritage,
The addition of Heritage, as a leader serving more than 1,200 families a year in one of the fastest growing markets in the country, aligns well with our focus on partnering with the best remaining independent funeral and cemetery businesses in high growth strategic markets. We are honored that Harris and Carolyn have selected Carriage and we look forward to supporting the Heritage team in the years to come," stated
