Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
In 1879, J.M. Posey entered the funeral service in Aiken County with the goal of providing quality, professional funeral service to those in need. Over the course of 65 years, Posey revolutionized the funeral business in Aiken County through the implementation of modern embalming techniques learned at the hands of Dr. Joseph Clark, founder of the Cincinnati College of Embalming. In addition, Posey built the first modern funeral facility which included a chapel and was the first to provide modern funeral transportation through the use of a motorized hearse and family cars. J.M.'s innovation and true love of service led to five sons working in the family firm.
