Welcome to Austin & Barnes Funeral Home and Crematory
Thank you for visiting our website.
We are a locally owned and operated full service funeral home since 1954. Centrally located in downtown Boone, we serve Watauga, Avery, Ashe, Caldwell, Wilkes counties in North Carolina, and Johnson County Tennessee.
We are a full service funeral home, and have the areas only on-site crematory. At Austin & Barnes Funeral Home and Crematory, we offer a wide range of services, including traditional full service funerals, memorial services, celebrations of life, cremation services, monuments, grave markers and mausoleums. In addition to these services we offer advance funeral planning.
Our commitment is to serve our community with care and compassion. We recognize that no two persons are alike, and that a funeral should be as unique as each individual or family we serve. We will assist you in planning services tailored to your specific needs, be it at need, or pre-need. We are committed to serve you 24 hours a day.
Grief never ends, but it changes.
Whether a death is sudden or expected, the loss of a loved one is indescribable. When you are in a heightened emotional state, even the most basic decisions can seem staggering.
A funeral director will guide you through all of these steps, using your wants, needs and desires as a foundation to create a memorable funeral for your loved one. From here the funeral services can be personalized. Did your loved one have a favorite sports team? What was their favorite type of music? What activity was your loved one known best for? Sharing these memories with the grieving process and will allow you to pay tribute to the life of your loved one.
Please contact us at anytime if a death has occured.
It's a passage, not a place to stay.
Taking the time to arrange your funeral now leaves one less thing your loved ones will need to worry about once you’ve passed. We are here to help you every step of the way.
While people spend months planning events like weddings and trips, few think about the one event that is certain to happen: their funeral. While most people do not want to think about their own mortality, the time to pre-plan your funeral is now. The primary advantage of pre-arranging your funeral is to relieve the burden on your loved ones in an emotional time, and to ensure your funeral is carried out according to your wishes, eliminating the task of second-guessing what you would have wanted. Pre-planning and pre-paying your funeral is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give to your family.
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith.
