We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

Welcome to LeCompte-Johnson-Taylor Funeral Home. We have been a family-owned funeral home since 1978 and have become trusted members of the community serving the Franklin, Anderson, Shelby, and surrounding counties.

LeCompte-Johnson-Taylor Funeral Home is dedicated to providing families with compassion and dignity in their time of need. We have been doing this for over 30 years. The goal is to treat each and every family as if they were our own. We do this by honoring each family's wishes -- whether traditional or non-traditional -- and by understanding that every family has a unique history, their own beliefs and financial position.

This website gives you the opportunity to learn about the facility, the staff and our service. You may review the current obituaries and/or leave a condolence message in the guest book. By using the pre-planning form, an entire service can be arranged from the privacy and convenience of your home.

The professional, caring and experienced staff is always on call and ready to assist, please call if we may be of service!
