Our Story

Boles Funeral Homes and Crematory, Inc. was founded in 1984 by James L. Boles, Jr. Boles takes great pride in being independently owned and family operated.

The mission of Boles Funeral Homes and Crematory is to give families the most caring, complete, and professional services in their time of loss. Our desire is to assist in the recognition of the value of a life lived and to facilitate meaningful ways for the family and community to celebrate the memory of their loved one. Our entire staff is committed to providing this level of service to all families that we are privileged to serve.

Boles Funeral Homes began with the first funeral home location in Southern Pines, North Carolina. As our communities have grown, we have grown along with them. In addition to our professional services, we feel that having the choice of a funeral home conveniently located to you is another way that we can better accommodate our families. We have nine funeral home locations in Southern Pines, Pinehurst, Seven Lakes, Red Springs, Rowland, Sanford, Saint Pauls, Fair Bluff and Lumberton. We also own and operate Longleaf Crematory on our premises at our Southern Pines location as well as The Good Shepherd our pet cemetery and creamtory located in West End.


If you have made arrangements or prepaid with another funeral home we can easily assist with the transfer of those services and benefits on your behalf to be used at any of the Boles Funeral Homes locations.

It is our great privilege to be a part of these communities and to be given the opportunity to serve you. You will find that we are dedicated in our service to you both before and beyond the day of the funeral.
