Our story begins with our founder, Brian Poole. After 24 years in the funeral business, Brian dreamt of having a funeral home where someone involved in our community made the decisions. He has experienced first-hand the effects of corporate ownership on the funeral industry. Funeral prices continually rise with no regard to the needs of the community. Families' needs go unmet because decisions are not made locally. As Brian has said, "After spending 24 years working with families, I believe the best way to serve is when a funeral home is locally owned. We can give back to the community we know and love. That is what we will do here in North Georgia."
Because of Brian’s vision, hard work, and dedication to our community, we now have such a place. Poole Funeral Home and Cremation Services at Woodstock is a locally owned facility, built specifically to serve the people of our community. Here we provide funeral services, cremation service, caskets, and urns, always bearing in mind our commitment to provide service and value to our clients. Brian put it this way, “We are local people serving local families. This is our home. We want everyone in our community to feel welcome here.”
