Affordable Burial & Cremation Service- Falcon Family Funeral Service

Comments

A while back we were asked how come we have a different name on our funeral coaches than ‘Affordable’.

The answer is simple. We want your family to know we are a family caring for your family. The Falcon Family has for over three generations owned and operated businesses in Austin and Central Texas. Just because you called a place named ‘Affordable’ we do not want your family to feel that because you want a lower price that somehow less service comes with that. We also want families to know it’s the Falcon Family that is there at any hour to help. That’s why it’s important we have those nameplates in our funeral coaches.

FAMILY Matters! The Falcon Family is here to help create a dignified service at a much more reasonable cost. Affordable doesn’t mean cheap, it means a family cares to not spend needless money to say goodbye.
We are honored to provide 100 Thanksgiving meals for families in need in Austin. Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce , gravy and roll.

These will be available first come first serve by delivery. If you know of a senior citizen, a family in need or homeless individual who needs a meal please reach out to our owner Robert Falcon

We are proud to be a native Austin family caring for Austin Families. No other funeral provider does more for less.
Most funeral homes do not use a funeral coach for airport transfers. None make sure a Veteran is properly honored as they are transferred to and from the airport. Little things that’s separate our family service from the others for a lot less.

Respect…
The Falcon family is honored to help families from outside of Austin get their loved one home

UPDATE:

Effective 9:00am today We are able to accept all new cremation calls and resume limited operations.

At this time, the crematory is still working through a large backlog of cases and families are advised to please be patient as cases are permitted and cremations can safely be performed.

A crematory machine can only cremate one person at a time and the process can take from 1-4 hours depending on the size of the deceased. This is critical information for your family to understand and if a Funeral Home is giving you timelines that are short, then they do not understand the cremation process or how to safely operate the equipment. Make sure the Funeral Professional you are talking to is also a Certified Crematory Operator and is familiar with the equipment they operate.

01/21/2021

UPDATE:

We are able to provide services where embalming of remains is selected. We are able at this time to accomodate families who are in need of burial or shipping services. Additionally if you have a prepaid cremation plan and a death occurs we will be able to bring your loved one in our care.

Our crematory staff advises that we should be able should be able to bring services online in the next 48 hours.

We Thank You Central Texas for your patience and understanding as navigate uncharted waters. Our family and staff are working diligently to help our Hometown.

A message from our owner:

We are experiencing an unprecedented demand for service in the Central Texas area. We are temporarily suspending accepting new deceased calls due to reaching capacity in our refrigeration service.

We acknowledge this makes a difficult time even more difficult for families and it is never our intention to add to that, but we must look at how we safely care for deceased and provide proper storage as we wait for cremation slots to open up.

At current the State of Texas has ignored our industry’s plea to relax permitting regulations to facilitate a shorter path to permitting for cremation. We have installed a new cremation machine to help in getting back to a more timely process however our emails and phone calls to TCEQ have gone ignored for over 6 weeks. Until the leaders in Texas Government step up and recognize what is going on right in their front yard Texas families are left to face a difficult time with no help.

We will do our best to open capacity for new calls ,as soon as we can and we again ask for patience with families currently in our care. These are unprecedented times and we can only pray for relief to come sooner than later.

Robert Falcon,
Funeral Director

Milestones we all face. Today we are Thankful for the many families who have trusted us. Even as we sit down to a table with an empty chair, we hurt with you. We are prayerful that today your family finds comfort on that first Thanksgiving without your loved one. As we hurt we are reminded that we find comfort in knowing Dad would want us to serve you even as we are having a bad day ourselves. 🙏🏼🙏🏼

Happy Thanksgiving from the Falcon Family

11 months ago today our Patriarch passed away.

Over 1600 families have trusted our family this year. The most difficult part is caring for others as we grieve and put our family second. We are grateful for the many Central Texas Families who have trusted our firm and we know sometimes we fall short.

As we enter this Thanksgiving week our continued prayers for comfort to you and your family. Losing a family member is difficult and we know the feeling too well. We are hurting but continue to serve. We hurt with you, we pray for you, we wish you a peaceful Thanksgiving.

We are thankful for the many lessons Dad taught us. The most important was to continue to care even though we are having a bad day.

Yesterday we were honored to provide burial services for two Veterans. Two hearses made the solemn somber trip up IH-35 and then to Hwy 195 to the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery.

Because of the COVID-19 shelter in place restrictions no family was present or Military Honors were rendered. One of the Veterans was an unclaimed Veteran and we had worked tirelessly to locate family to no avail.

We were honored to provide our casket and services for this Veteran at No cost.
