It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
Established in 1855, Ridout's Brown-Service Funeral Home is the oldest funeral home establishment in Decatur, Alabama. We have been serving Decatur and surrounding Alabama communities at our present location since 1964. Our professional staff of licensed funeral directors and embalmers continue the tradition of providing families with care and devotion during their time of need.
The story of Ridout's Brown-Service Funeral Home would not be complete without mentioning James Birdsong, the late funeral director and former manager. He came to Decatur on May 10, 1969, and was hired by John C. McBride at the funeral home, which was then known as Brown Service Funeral Home. Before his death in 2010, he lovingly served the Decatur community more than four decades.
