COVID-19 and Funeral Services
Shelton Funeral Home has implemented several changes in response to the current Coronavirus situation. We are following mandates and guidelines from the Alabama Department of Public Health, the State Health officer, and CDC, as well as utilizing a common sense approach to serving our families while protecting them and our staff. Additional procedural changes may be required at any time and we will provide updates as they occur.
When a death occurs, we will obtain as much information as possible from the responsible family member via phone, email, and/or fax. When the family does physically come to the funeral home, we are limiting the number of family members in the arrangements conference to three persons unless otherwise required (surviving spouse, or deceased's children).
Gatherings are no longer limited in number but social distancing (6' apart) is required and masks are recommended. When health restrictions are no longer required, we will be happy to assist our families in traditional celebrations of life, visitations, and military honors. We will continue to prepare obituaries for newspaper publication, and obituaries will be posted on our website at no cost (according to family preference).
We ask for your patience and understanding during this difficult time of dealing with this pandemic, and encourage our families to practice social distancing, wash and sanitize hands, and take all recommended precautions. In consideration of all family members, guests, and staff, please refrain from wearing strong scents of any kind while attending arrangement conferences and/or services.
Shelton Funeral Home was established in 1972, and is still family-owned and operated. We strive for excellence, and the family is our first priority. If you do not find the information you need on this site please feel free to call or email us.
Our goal is serving the needs of families who have suffered the loss of a loved one. We take great pride in meeting the needs of the family and helping make this time as easy as possible.
We offer a wide range of service options from traditional funerals, cremations, and graveside service, just to name a few. Please feel free to contact us for more details on these and other options.
