Prices for Thatchers Funeral Home:

Thatchers Funeral Home at 1520 North Fifth Street serves the African-American community of north-east Kansas City. Convenient for I-70 access, the funeral home is within 30 miles of two cemeteries.

The chapel can seat approximately 200 guests. An elegant hospitality room equipped with tables and chairs can accommodate any size of catered funeral reception. Home-like family lounges provide privacy and comfort before services begin. The facility has a cheerful, home-like atmosphere throughout.

Thatcher's Funeral Home is the oldest African-American owned and operated funeral business in the State of Kansas. Founded by the present owner's great-grandfather Nathan Thatcher Sr. in 1912, the facility has provided "homegoing" services that celebrate the lives of loved ones for over 100 years.

Today, great-grandson Robert L. Davis, General Manager, Licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer, continues this legacy under the watchful eye of his grandmother Myrtle Thatcher, who may be officially retired, but continues to be a pillar of the community and therefore very much a part of the funeral home's “hands-on” approach to helping neighbors in their time of need. Personalized funeral service options include veterans services, pre-planning, direct cremation, cremation with memorial services and traditional burial with chapel, visitation or graveside services.
