Rollings Funeral Service Announces Acquisition of Georgia Funeral Home

TYRONE, GA – Rollings Funeral Service is proud to announce the recent acquisition of McNeill Funeral Home & Cremation Service in Martinez, GA. The funeral home was formerly owned by Kevin McNeill, Sr.

“Having been owned and operated by Kevin McNeill and his family and founded on family principles, the funeral home is exactly what I look for when adding new firms to our organization,” said Greg Rollings, president & CEO, of Rollings Funeral Service. “Although the funeral home was founded only 17 years ago, the McNeill family has built a solid reputation of quality, compassion, and reliability for their community,” Rollings continued. He also noted that Rollings Funeral Service is now almost up to 20 locations in Georgia.

Speaking with Kevin McNeill, Sr, he mentioned that he established the funeral home in 2004 but has almost 50 years experience in funeral service. Looking to slow down though and plan for the firm’s future, McNeill began to look at setting up a succession plan. Wanting a trustworthy and honest person to continue the McNeill legacy, he ultimately sold his firm to Greg and Debbie Rollings. “I know Greg personally and he was up front and fair with me throughout the entire process,” mentioned McNeill. He also mentioned that he is now looking forward to taking a step back from the ownership side of the business and being able to focus more on just serving families.

Annually, McNeill Funeral Home & Cremation Service serves around 400 families.
