Our History

Our History

The opening of Deerfoot Memorial Funeral Home in Trussville in December 2015 brought a new modern funeral facility to area residents and a new philosophy in providing affordable funeral services.

Deerfoot Memorial was founded on the premise that many times families of loved ones are overwhelmed by the high price of funeral services being offered by other establishments.

The staff at Deerfoot understood that families deserved a more affordable option when choosing a funeral home to take care of their loved one. At Deerfoot these options not only include saving thousands of dollars on Traditional Funeral Services, but also tremendous savings on American made caskets and vaults.

Members of the Deerfoot staff have strong ties to the Trussville area as parents of children growing up in this community, worshiping with neighbors and working with other residents to make the city one of the best areas to live and work in the country.

We are honored to be a part of the Trussville family and would also be honored to serve our friends and neighbors in their time of need..
