I talked with Jerry Beyer who used to be part owner of Roth.. He said that Lindsey and Roth are owned by a corporation and that Jeremy guy was just a stock holder,, you can check at the courthouse and see who owns them...NOT LOCAL,, also John Barker said the same thing....I got my fact straight....

Hughes Funeral Home on the southside and Morrow Funeral Chapel on the west side. They both are small family owned by good christian people with hearts as big as the sky. They will do a great job at a fair price. The others seem a bit too impersonal and feel like they are run by big business.
At both places, you can get your head stone at the same time and not have to go some where else. The prices on those are a whole lot cheaper and you can design your own the way you want. The quality of work is fantastic...
HUGES. IS THE WAY TO GO! The nicest people and good family.

TO: "NEED TO KNOW" Lets look at why Jerry Beyer would tell you a lie.

A: His crematory is in direct competition with the Crematory Lindsey openend in Oak Grove.

B: He lost his job at lindsey and roth because he is an idiot with short man syndrome.

And in closing, a majority stockholder = the local owner!!!

If its a REAL business it has to have a stockholder and a registered agent to get Licence??

Dude, I don't hav a dog in this fight.. I hope I don't need any funeral home for a while. I told my wife who I wanted to handle my services...and she agreed. We are going to that new crematory place on park ave.. Just simple services...As for Jerry Beyer, I didn't know he had a crematory.. I thought he worked for some concrete co.. John Barker would not have a reason to lie....Roth used to be a nice place,, but its is outdated...and Lindsey's is just as bad...

John Barker, Chuck and Amanda that all work at Milner and Orr used to work at Lindsey's and Roth! I cant remember if it was on or the other....since they were owned by different owners, then got bought out by a company and then sold again to a man in Murray...to only be sold again.
Jerry Beyer, also worked at Roth..
Ricky Huges...worked at Lindsey's
And Tony Keeling started out a Roth, then when owners changed moved over to Lindsey's. When the Corp. bought them out they let him go.....So he opened his own.
I have to say I know for a Fact that Mr. Keeling is a local born and raised boy from Paducah and is GREAT at helping families.

Sounds like a soap opera to me.. would make a good tv show. As the funeral home turns and turns.. As for me.. change of plans wife and I discussed cremation with our children.. went over like a lead baloon. they want us to have the full meal deal..guess we are gonna shop around and find the best for the best price.. we can get our casket on line from walmart.. save some bucks there..

I would use anybody in Paducah except Lindseys & Roths who are owned by a large corporation that isn't even in Paducah. I had a very bad experience at Lindsey's when my mom died in 07. Keeling, Milner and Orr are all very good funeral homes to use.
I agree. I had a horrible experience at Lindsey's and will never go back. I sure wouldn't trust their funeral directors around your wives. Very unprofessional.

I lost both of my parents last year..my Mom in January and my Dad in May and for both I used Keeling. Tony Keeling is a great man and very kind hearted. When it came time to fill out insurance forms Tony was right there to help me with everything and this was AFTER everything had been paid for so he wasn't helping just to make sure he got his money. All of my grandparents were at Lindseys and have been to a few services at Roths but out of all of them I would go to Keeling...just hope I don't have to go again anytime soon!!!
I agree that Tony Keeling at Keeling is the best place to be they have the biggest chapel in Paducah .. Great person to work with ..

Hamock Funeral Home: read to see why it's the best in Paducah.

Charles "Speedy" Atkins is an American folk figure. Not much is known about his life. He was born in Tennessee and moved to Kentucky to find work. He settled in downtown Paducah, Kentucky as an hourly employee at a plant with ties to the tobacco industry. He gained the nickname "Speedy" because of his speed at working in tobacco, and was also said to be a womanizer. He was single without known relatives and befriended funeral home attendant A. Z. Hamock, who, at the time, owned the city's only African-American funeral home.

In May 1928, Speedy went fishing and fell into the Ohio River along with his line, where he drowned. His body was turned over to Hamock's Funeral Home for a pauper's burial, but Hamock had a better idea. He had created a powerful preservative and decided to experiment on Speedy's body with it. It turned Speedy's body into a wooden-like statue, and turned his black skin a reddish color. It also preserved his facial features, and he still remained recognizable.[1] Rather than bury Speedy, Hamock put him on display at the funeral home. The body was only away from the funeral home one time: when it washed away during the Paducah flood of 1937, and was returned to the funeral home as a flood victim.

Hamock died in 1949, and his wife Velma took over custody of the body. Mrs. Hamock had originally planned to bury the mummy in 1991 on her late husband's 100th birthday, but waited until May 1994.[2][3][4][5] "Speedy" Atkins has been featured in Ripley's Believe It Or Not, the TV program That's Incredible, and the National Enquirer[6] His story was also told on the Discovery Channel.

Atkins is buried in Maplelawn Cemetery, in Paducah, Kentucky

Lindsey and Roth were bought back by a very nice guy who lives in Paducah. He only hires local people and has done a good job at bringing the place local. So check your facts folks.
Milner and orr are the conglomarate that has 7 or 8 funeral homes and you are only a number to them.
Hughes is also a nicel local owned guy who treats people good.
The evergreen group ownes it. you need to check your facts!

It might matter to the family of the deceased, moron. Also, many people take care of their own funeral arrangements before they die, because they don't want to be a burden on their family. Dumbass.

I have had family at Hughes Funeral Home on Husbands Rd. I was EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH everything they did. Everyone was very helpful, caring, professional, and they were not constantly trying to talk you into buying more expensive items. There was not a bill waiting in your mailbox the day after the funeral like some places I have known to do to people. They filled out all insurance forms and waited for a reply from them before they sent a bill. Very caring, people like you need in such a sad time. A grieving family does not need extra pressure, they only need compassion and help. That is what you will get at Hughes.
