We’re so excited to announce their recent addition of McClain-Hays Funeral Service in Philadelphia, Mississippi. The funeral home, which was founded 85 years ago, was formerly owned by Charles “Chuck” A. McClain, Jr. and his wife, Kim.

Greg Rollings said “Starting with Chuck’s grandfather in the 1930s, the funeral home has become synonymous with exceptional service in Philadelphia. As a family organization since its founding, Chuck has helped continue that legacy of service and family values and I know this partnership will be a great fit for our company.” Greg also mentioned that this marks our first location in Mississippi.

McClain-Hays Funeral Service was founded in 1937 by Jack McClain (Chuck’s grandfather), Willard Hays and Jethro Holland. Since its beginning, the funeral home remained in the McClain family when direction was later passed on to Charles A. McClain, Sr. and longtime partner, Barney M. Nowell and then eventually being passed on to Charles A. McClain, Jr.

Speaking with Chuck McClain, he mentioned that he and his wife wanted to start looking at options for the future of McClain-Hays. Their biggest consideration when choosing a partner was being able to continue to serve and care for their families and their community in the manner it has come to expect, which led them to Greg. “We didn’t want a large corporation partner. We wanted to be able to continue our 85 year legacy and we felt like Greg best represented our values and the concentration on service to families,” mentioned McClain. In this new partnership, McClain is looking forward to what being a part of a greater organization will mean for the funeral home, saying “We’ll now be able to take advantage of new resources available to us that will help us serve our families better.”
