Hendryx Mortuary - family owned and operated for four generations
The Hendryx Mortuary, located at 11636 E. Washington Street, started in New Palestine in 1888 and also has a location in Cumberland/Indianapolis on the old National Road in the Old Towne Historic District in Cumberland.
During their 118 years of serving the public, Hendryx Mortuary has worked to make families feel at home in their beautifully decorated facility. Their motto is, "Our Home is Your Home."
Hendryx Mortuary is a full-service facility, and can help with at-need plans, pre-need planning, monuments and cremation services. They provide services worldwide, and work with all local cemeteries. Because they are family owned and operated, families are treated to individual attention during their time of need, with customized services and affordable pricing.
Owner Thomas K. Hendryx is the fourth generation to carry on the Hendryx tradition in the community. Max Hendryx, licensed in 1941 and Tom Hendryx, licensed in 1978, have decades of combined experience. Currently, Mr. Hendryx works with cemeteries, churches and other groups and individuals to fulfill the needs of the family and the community.
The philosophy that has guided the family is to uphold traditions and respect new methods and approaches to funerals and memorials. They cater to all faiths and nationalities.
"You will grieve in your own time, and the event of death of your loved one is painful and difficult," said Tom K. Hendryx. "Let's not forget the celebration of the life that the person had, and remember the good and happy times shared with that person."
To that end, Hendryx Mortuary offers a range of options for families to choose from to create a fitting memorial. Your family traditions and customs are honored, and your family is treated with dignity and respect during a difficult time. The staff members use all their available resources to assist you in planning the type of a funeral service you want.
In addition to memorial services, Hendryx Mortuary has recently opened The Cumberland Room, a large room available for meetings, weddings, service groups, parties, and much more. Catering and set-up options for The Cumberland Room are available.
