History & Staff

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

Our roots in the community started many years ago and although we remember the past, we look forward to the future and all its promise. It was a dream fulfilled when we purchased the property at 12012 Hwy 190 West and made it our own, Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Homes. In October 2011, we opened a second location at 1190 Hwy 51 North in Ponchatoula. Our new ideas and concepts, along with superior service, exceedingly meet the needs of today’s generation. Caring for others is much more than a job to us, it is our way of life.
