Saunders Funeral Home is an outgrowth of a dream by Hubert and Willie Saunders that became a reality on March 6, 1990. Confident that God was with them, they obtained a building at 212 Bell Fork Road Jacksonville NC, for the purposes of providing efficient, dignified and sympathetic funeral service to families in the Onslow County community of all economic levels and faiths, regardless of race, creed, or color. They chose the motto "Meeting Needs Exceeding Expectations."


Employees work under the premise that "Service is friendship in action. The Business has grown rapidly and because of its growth and service demands, in 2004 the Saunders moved to its new facility at 210 Bell Fork Road Jacksonville NC. Hubert Saunders is a graduate of the McAllister Institute of Funeral Service, in New York and has been licensed as a Funeral Service Practioneer for over 25 years. Willie Saunders is a graduate of the Fayetteville Technical Community College, in Fayetteville, NC and has been licensed as a Funeral Director since 1995. Their knowledge, guidance, and compassion has helped many bereaved families get through one of the most difficult times in their lives.


"Our commitment to our community and indeed to your family is to treat you as we ourselves want to be treated fairly and compassionately. We are grateful for the confidence that the public has placed in us and pledge that we will continue to work diligently to maintain that trust."
