The Cox Family has been serving the needs of our community for more than 100 years. We feel that the pre-arrangement of a funeral may be the single most important asset to a family at the time of a death of a loved one. Some people today feel that a pre-arrangement is as important to family as the planning of a will.

When you decide to pre-plan your funeral, you join the growing ranks of Americans who have discovered a simple, satisfying way to lessen a future hardship for their families. Too often, the task of arranging for a funeral falls to survivors who are unprepared for the important decisions they'll need to make. However, your survivors will take comfort in knowing you have wisely taken this opportunity to put all your affairs in order. The anguish and stress it will save them is priceless.

Planning ahead gives “peace of mind” in knowing that family members will not be required to make difficult decisions during time of loss, and that one's personal wishes and desires will honored.

Cox Funeral Home History

Original 1907 Cox Funeral Home Horse Drawn Hearse

Lewis Cox 4th Generation, and Robert L. "Bud" Cox 3rd Generation in 1990 With Original 1907 Cox Funeral Home horse drawn hearse.

Mr. William H. Cox, great great grandfather of Lewis Cox opened a wagon-making shop in the Wellhope section of Rockcastle County, Kentucky in 1862 and quickly became known as one of the areas finest craftsman. His son William A. Cox later joined him in this business. William H. was particularly well-known for the sturdy wagons that he made and soon families began to request that Mr. Cox handcraft caskets as they needed them. This led to the involvement of the Cox Family in the funeral service practice that still continues.
