“Obviously Aurora shares our commitment to funeral service with the Barrott and Backman families remaining family-owned and operated for five generations,” Starnes added. “In this sense, our partnership is a perfect fit.”

“Kaye and Dennis are well respected by funeral professionals throughout the Southeast. By working together, we can serve our customers better than either of our companies could do working alone,” said Bill Backman, III, president of Aurora Casket.

Capital City operates out of Cayce, South Carolina. Edgecombe Casket Company operates out of Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Customers will continue to have access to the Edgecombe or Capital City products, in addition to Aurora products and services.
