Our Heritage

The Major Funeral Home & Chapel and The Major Cremation & Funeral Center (Alpha Crematory Services) is a family owned and operated corporation. We are centrally located within Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex with our headquarters located in Arlington, TX.

Our Founder

The Major Funeral Home was founded by Major H. Williams, Sr.,1st Sergeant.  Ret. Sgt. Williams volunteered for 2 tours of duty in Vietnam. He understands the issues that face each family which experiences a loss.

The Major Funeral Home was founded to meet the needs of families by providing them with affordable funerals without sacrificing quality, dignity and respect.  Ret. Sgt. Williams designed The Major Funeral Home to be the home of the unique "Not One Penny More" philosophy towards funeral services.

Unlike other funeral homes, The Major Funeral Home was designed to serve a diverse population--local, national, and international. Because he is well traveled, Ret. 1st Sgt. Williams is sensitive to the funeral rites of diverse cultural and religious groups both near and abroad.

Our History

The Major Funeral Home was formerly the McGowan Funeral Home which was in existence 45 years.

The name was changed to The Major Funeral Home & Chapel in May of 2000.

Our Mission

Serving the community through guilt-free affordable funeral services.
