New business venture for Davenport Funeral Home

Davenport Funeral Home of Walhalla will keep its highway 11 location at West Union. But the funeral home, owned by Larry Hendrix, is branching out with a new office near Seneca. Plans call for the Blue Ridge Cremation Society office to open Monday at 10708 Clemson Boulevard near Blue Ridge Orthopedics. According to Hendrix, Blue Ridge Cremation Society will be the place where you can sign up for cremation services or immediate burials at less than the cost of traditional services. It’s going to be a place where people can make their final arrangements for basic services. Davenport Funeral Home on highway 11 will remain the location for traditional funeral services and actual cremation. But Blue Ridge Cremation Society will now be the place to make cremation arrangements.
