Carson-Speaks Chapel

We are proud to announce the addition of the Carson-Speaks Chapel. This Independence, MO, funeral home has served area families since 1900.  We took over operations of George C. Carson & Sons Funeral Home in January of 2003 and, along with redecorating, have given the funeral home an updated name. In the summer of 2006 the front of the chapel received a well deserved facelift. We look forward to continuing to serve the Independence community at this location.


Resource Center

At Speaks we believe that our funeral home offers more services than any other funeral home in the Independence, Missouri, area. As part of that commitment, our online Resource Center provides much needed death-related information for the community.
