Bay Springs Funeral Home has been here in this community for the past 65 years. It has been under many different ownership,managers but only one location. Bay Springs funeral home was built and established by George Harper who was the founder, and wanted to do something in the community that has a black heritage in the Bay Springs area, but was shortly lived.

In the mid fifties the funeral home was bought out by Alexander's Gatewood who was also the owner of the white funeral home in Bay Springs at that time, the funeral home name then became Dixie Funeral Home. Many struggles had taken place since the time of purchase with staff, management, and ownership changes. During this time blacks setup cemetery sites for the white funeral home while at the same time conducting the black funerals and making there own cemetery setups.

Men who have been in charge of carrying out the funeral services for our families doing these transitions were TJ Huntley, Nathan Hodges, and LJ Holder. In 1973 I (Jessie Lee Crosby) came along the month of June the 6th day.Since that time many other changes have been made. The Funeral home burned in March of 1986 at this time the funeral home was restored, and remodeled to a more modern facility.

A chapel was added,the building was bricked, and a complete paved parking lot was also added to the Bay Springs Funeral Home establishment. In November of 1994 Bay Springs Funeral Home became Bay Springs Funeral Home, Inc. The first name change since the early sixties. It had always been Bay Springs Funeral Home ,but it had never been incorporated, nor had it stood on it's own income, and with a full service staff to the people that we are serving.

We would like to thank you in advance for choosing Bay Springs Funeral Home to render services to you, and your family.
