Legacy

Beyond a service, we're committed to helping families create lasting tributes that transcend generations.

Our story

H. Roger Cauthen graduated from the Gupton Jones School of Embalming in 1932. He and his wife, Ruby Lloyd Sistare Cauthen opened their first Funeral Home in 1940 in Lancaster. As their family grew, so did their business. Roger and Ruby Lloyd, as they were known, opened a funeral home in Kershaw in the mid 1940's. Their sons become funeral directors like their parents. Under the guidance of Hazel Cauthen and his wife Kay, the business grew even more, opening a funeral home in Rock Hill, and purchasing Wolfe Funeral Home in Fort Mill.
