Furneaux Cemetery was founded by William Furneaux in 1884. Feeling that the rural community was in need of a cemetery, he donated the property that is now our cemetery. Roughly a month after establishing the cemetery, Mr. Furneaux himself was the first internment. He was buried under a favorite tree that only recently died. From its base a new tree has risen to take its place, continuing to provide shade over the Furneaux gravesites.
The Furneaux Cemetery Association continues to operate as it has since it founding. A dedicated group of volunteers whose all have family members within the cemetery. For us, its a personal mission to make sure that our family members continue to have a safe and beautiful place to rest.
The cities around us have grown in the last 125 years! A country cemetery until the late 1970's, we have continued to maintain the cemetery in that style. Traditionally, most of our families have come from Carrollton and Hebron with a few from Lewisville but we have always been open to families from around the Metroplex.
