History & Staff
We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
In this year, 2017, we proudly celebrate 100 years in business in Bloomington and we remain Bloomington's only locally owned funeral home and crematory.
In 1917 W. Walter Allen and his brother established the first funeral home in Bloomington to carry the Allen name, which is known today as Allen Funeral Home and Crematory.
Since 1917, Allen Funeral Home has been a part of the Bloomington and Monroe County community, standing ready to assist families at a time of need. Through a series of locations, first at 4th and Walnut St's to 6th and Washington St. and for many years at 3000 E. Third St. to our new location at 4155 South Old State Road 37, we have continued to offer the families we serve the most modern and convenient facilities. We are the only funeral home or cemetery located in Bloomington and all of Monroe County to offer an onsite crematory.
Our firm has progressed through the years and now maintains one of the most attractive, most modern and one of the largest funeral homes in Southern Indiana to serve your family. We are proud of our staff of directors who are dedicated to their profession. They stand ready to assist your family at your time of need with care, compassion and expertise at a time when you need them most. In 2016, we expanded our facilities to accommodate the cremation of pets to our expanding line of services we offer.
The staff of Allen Funeral Home is committed to providing each and every family with professional, caring service. When you call upon Allen Funeral Home, you may rest assured that your family will be provided with the care and compassion families have come to expect for nearly 100 years.
