Heritage Funeral Service and Crematory was founded in 1999 by owners Ed Plemmons and Andy Thompson as a funeral home to serve Valdese, Morganton, and surrounding areas. It is their goal as funeral directors to guide families through what can be a very difficult process, with flexibility and compassion for their families needs. Ed and Andy are dedicated to helping people when the most tragic circumstance of life occurs. Above all, you have the Heritage commitment to honor the individual integrity of the deceased and their circle of family and friends. With the most modern and finest of area facilities, Heritage is honored to serve your family with the home town service they deserve.

With over 60 years of experience serving Burke, Catawba, Avery and Caldwell County families, the owners and staff of Heritage Funeral Service and Crematory is committed to helping families plan a personal and meaningful ceremony that celebrates life, and launches the much-needed healing process.
