Our Story Since 1914

Bob Harrell current Funeral Director/Manager has been serving families in the surrounding communities since 1982.

Higginbotham Funeral Homes of Texas began in 1881 in Dublin, and now serves the communities of Cross Plains, Gorman, Comanche, Stephenville, Robinson, Waco, Cleburne, Burleson, and Joshua. 

The Cross Plains location at first operated as the Undertaking Department inside Higginbotham Bro. & Co. General Merchants which opened June 1, 1914.  

The photograph above was taken in 1960 when the funeral home was still located in the Higginbotham store on the left side of the building.

The current funeral home was built in 1968. The picture above was taken just after it was completed.

Until 1976 the funeral home also furnished the only 24-hour ambulance service for this area.  This picture shows the ambulance, which also doubled as a hearse, ready for a call.

The new funeral home included a spacious chapel with new pews and beautiful custom wood paneling.  

The tree-covered lawn helps the Higginbotham Funeral Home have a homelike look and feel.

The Higginbotham hardware firms and funeral homes became separate corporations in 2000 with Higginbotham descendants still the majority stockholders. Ryan Ramsower, who manages one of the family’s Waco firms, represents the fifth generation of Higginbothams in the funeral business.

Since our founding, the guiding principle of Higginbotham Funeral Home - Cross Plains has been the commitment to treating each family who comes to us as our own. With sincerity, pride, and dedication, we are committed to this time-honored tradition.

Our family opened the doors of the funeral home years ago. Our reputation for providing the highest quality of service grew, and today we are privileged to serve hundreds of area families each year.  

In recent years, we’ve gathered together a staff of highly-qualified and deeply caring individuals to assist us in continuing the funeral home’s mission of providing excellence in funeral services to families in their time of need.

Whether you have an immediate need for our services or you wish to begin pre-planning a funeral arrangement for you or someone you love, call us. We will be proud to serve you.
