Our History

Since 1917, Allen Funeral Home has been a part of the Bloomington and Monroe County community, standing ready to assist families at a time of need. Through a series of locations, first at 4th and Walnut St's to 6th and Washington St. and for many years at 3000 E. Third St. to our new location at 4155 S. Old State Rd. 37, we have continued to offer the families we serve the most modern and convenient facilities.

The name Allen has stood for five generations in the Bloomington business community as a symbol of reliable and trustworthy service.  In 1917 W. Walter Allen and his brother established the first funeral home in Bloomington which is known today as the Allen Funeral Home.

This firm has progressed through the years and now maintains one of the most attractive, most modern and one of the largest funeral homes in Southern Indiana to serve your family.  We are proud of our staff of directors who are dedicated to their profession.  They stand ready to assist your family at your time of need with care, compassion and expertise at a time when you need them most.

The staff of Allen Funeral Home is committed to providing each and every family with professional, caring service. When you call upon Allen Funeral Home, you may rest assured that your family will be provided with the care and compassion families have come to expect for over 90 years.
