James H. Cole Funeral Home for Funerals is located near Wayne University campus and New Center. Serving families in the downtown and south-west Detroit area, the funeral home is one of two chapels, the other being Northwest Chapel on Puritan and Schaefer Highway. Both facilities are within a short drive of two cemeteries.
The single-story, gray main chapel with its large glass fronted entrance can seat up to 200 guests comfortably; the modern facility also provides elegant visitation and reception rooms.
No direct burial is offered, but traditional funeral service includes burial and cremation and direct cremation without ceremony. The family-owned and operated business was founded by James H. Cole Sr. in 1919. Today it is run by James H. Cole Jr. and his youngest daughter Karla - both are supported by Karla's sons Antonio and Brice Green.
The family firm was originally located on the lower east side of Detroit on St. Aubin (known as “Black Bottom”), but moved to its present location in 1982. Now in its fourth generation, the funeral home is proud to be Detroit's oldest African-American owned funeral home. The firm is an Authorized Remembrance Provider and offers pre-planning.
