We’ve designed our entire facility to help your family smile again.
The newest and most modern funeral home and cremation center in Bryan College Station and the entire Brazos Valley is now open. The all new Callaway-Jones Cremation Funeral and Cremation Center has been 106 years in the making. Your family and guests will now experience large spacious areas, towering ceilings, and oversized windows allowing natural sunlight to fill the space. Brand new beautiful furniture provides elegance and comfort to your family and all your guests.
Here a few of the many features you will notice when you visit our new Funeral and Cremation Center:
Parking: We now have almost 100 parking spaces including handicap. Convenient parking is available on all four sides of the funeral center. Stay dry when it’s raining by pulling under one of our 2 drive through porte-cocheres. Our parking lot is lit at night by large LED poles.
Bluebonnet Community Event Room: Our multifunctional funeral room can seat 300 guests comfortably in row style seating. If your family prefers a banquet style set-up, we can accommodate 20 banquet style round tables, with 8 guests at each table. Within the room we have installed multiple flat screen displays and 2 wide screen projector systems. If you prefer a more intimate space, our hideaway walls help shrink the room to a size more manageable for your preference.
Magnolia Cremation Suite: Our serene, secure onsite cremation viewing area, with optional window view (open or closed), so you can be present in privacy when the cremation process is happening. Our 3rd Crematory, this one is located within our new cremation center. It’s not everyone’s first choice, we understand, but when we visit with friends about cremation as an option, people appreciate all we offer.
Receptions Celebrating Lives: Extends the experience of a personal and meaningful remembrance event into a time of food and sharing allowing family and friends to remember their loved one in a personal and inspired event celebration. These receptions are uniquely themed around the life story of the person being remembered. These take place on-site, in the funeral center’s Bluebonnet Community Event Room, or at other locations. Catering is available which comfortably seats up to 160 guests in a banquet style setting.
Themed Remembrance Events: Helps facilitate the sharing of memories and telling of a life story using themed visuals such as mementos, photo collages, props, softly playing music, and unique activities. Every detail is thoughtfully and uniquely utilized to share the individual story of a loved one’s life, creating a meaningful and personal experience.
Legacy Lounge: The Legacy Lounge is a separate area offering your family and guests a chance to sit and relax during visitation and other events, while enjoying coffee, juice, cookies, and other treats.
Welcome Lobby: We offer the largest lobby space of any funeral home in the greater Brazos Valley area. Our lobby also easily accommodates large crowd gatherings during visitations, services, and other events. It’s also large enough to use as an overflow area. The lobby has a 90″ Flat Panel LED TV to show your loved one’s tribute video. Also, you won’t be able to miss our double sided fireplace with floor to ceiling stone.
Family Conversation Suites: Two Family Sized Conversation Suites. Our family conversation suites are spacious and the most comfortable of any local funeral home. Each suite comfortably sits 10 family members or more. When your family sits down with one of our directors, certified celebrants, or event experts, you won’t feel confined and pressured. These rooms are designed to lower the anxiety of your family and to increase the ability to plan a meaningful remembrance event within a warm, non-threatening environment. Using technology and a large screen format, families are able to participate in the arrangement conversation with access to all options and total transparency on products, services, and cost.
Certified Celebrant – Story Tellers: Our Certified Celebrants, or specially trained speakers, present a meaningful and personalized service that tells the life story of your loved one. A Storyteller leads the service and creates a beautiful remembrance event that captures the wonderful memories of a person’s life and can be the single officiant for the event or work alongside a member of the Clergy.
Technology: Free WiFi is offered throughout the funeral center thanks to multiple powerful wireless hotspots. Flat panel Tv’s located throughout the facility allow guests to view Tribute Videos and services. Our full screen video wall is a one of a kind display providing the perfect compliment to any Celebration of Life Ceremony with SuperHD Video Tributes and scenic backdrops.
