Carriage Services Expands Its Presence in Northeast Kentucky With the Acquisitions of Carman Funeral Home and Roberson Funeral Home
HOUSTON, TX — Carriage Services, Inc. (NYSE: CSV) announced today that it has acquired Carman Funeral Home and Roberson Funeral Home, both in Northeast Kentucky. Carman Funeral Home was established in 1913 by James Stewart Carman. Beginning in 1933 Herbert J. “Herb” Greene (Mr. Carman’s Son-In-Law) joined the firm and from that point the business was operated by members of the Carman and Greene family and ownership eventually rested with a local operator. This business will continue to be managed by a Carman/Greene family member, Bob Greene.
Roberson Funeral Home was established in 1940 in South Shore, Kentucky by S. M. Roberson and his son James Roberson. Over the years the business has changed hands several times with a series of local operators. James R. Osman, one of the business’ original employees and a prior owner, will stay involved with the business on an ongoing basis.
Melvin C. Payne, Chairman and CEO of Carriage, said, “We are excited about the addition of these two high quality businesses, which will extend our presence and service reputation within the Ohio River Valley. Carriage will now have four highly respected operations in this traditional market area, which already includes Steen and Marshall Steen Funeral Homes in Ashland, Kentucky.”
Carriage Services is a leading provider of deathcare services and merchandise in the United States. Carriage operates 158 funeral homes in 25 states and 33 cemeteries in 12 states.
