Celebrating life since 1927

As a proud member of the Bainbridge community since 1927, we're honored to help families celebrate their loved ones. We pledge to ensure that every funeral and memorial service is deeply personal, fostering healing and remembrance.

What we stand for

Our promise

Today, tomorrow, and forever, our commitment to you stays the same.


Every life is unique, and we promise to honor and respect each journey, crafting ceremonies that reflect each individual.


Navigating grief can be overwhelming; we stand by you, providing direction and solace every step of the way.


Beyond a service, we're committed to helping families create lasting tributes that transcend generations.

Our story

Cox Funeral Home was founded in 1927 by  Mr. E. W. Cox.  He, along with his sons Walter Cox and Ronnie Cox, served Decatur County and the surrounding areas with loyalty and pride.  In 1931, Cox Funeral Home was moved to a boarding house on West Street in  historic downtown Bainbridge  where we continue to be located.   In 2011, Andy and Christy Cadwell  became the co-owners of Cox Funeral Home.  Having worked at Cox since his high school years, Andy and the staff continue the tradition of service with compassion, dignity and professionalism  provided to our community since 1927.
