Posey Funeral Directors is a funeral home dedicated to great service and unwavering support. As a member of the North Augusta community, Posey Funeral Directors strives to build a personal and stress-free experience for all of its client families.
Posey Funeral Directors offers a variety of services, including traditional funerals and burials, cremation, and pet services.
For funerals, families can decide to follow the traditional format with visitation, memorial service, and graveside service or follow a relaxed format with a memorial service in the comfort of their own homes. Posey Funeral Directors will work directly with all cemeteries in the area to ease the burden on families.
Cremation services may vary, including a graveside service for those that want cremation but also want a final resting place for the family to gather and visit. Families can also choose a committal service as a gathering in the cemetery after a memorial service in a home or chapel. Posey Funeral Directors can also help coordinate a scattering service for families that want to scatter their loved one’s remains in a thoughtful area.
Posey Funeral Directors believes that each life is unique and honoring life in a unique way promotes healing during a time of grief. Families can choose a variety of different events to memorialize their loved one, such as a traditional burial, a gathering in a favorite location, or a celebration based on the loved one’s favorite sports team or family keepsake items. Families can even choose to scatter someone’s ashes in the ocean or send them to space.
These unique tributes set Posey Funeral Directors apart. Families don’t have to have a memorial service like any other because funeral directors at this company will help make each service unique to the individual.
In addition to a unique memorial service, families can look into webcasting services for the funeral, a video and photo tribute to be played, personalized photo programs, and even a memorial website for their loved one.

A beautiful arrangement can add color and elegance to a funeral service. As part of the online store, Posey Funeral Directors offers a personal floral service to make supporting your loved ones easy. Not all funeral homes provide this service. The online store offers multiple style options from casket flowers to vase arrangements. If can't decide on a flower arrangement, let our local florist decide with a florist choice bouquet. All flower arrangements are guaranteed to be hand-delivered with a same-day flower delivery option.
Posey Funeral Directors’ website offers a wealth of information and helpful videos, but pricing information is difficult to find. Website visitors have to go to the “Selection Guide” section and flip through an ebook to find standard pricing rates. The book feature is aesthetically pleasing, but the print is difficult to read. The best way to find funeral costs is to set up an appointment with one of the staff members to discuss specific options and details.
