About Cotrell Funeral Service


“The Right Choice When It Matters Most”

George Begley and J.J. Frank had been providing mortuary services to Butler County and the surrounding area since the founding of Cotrell Funeral Service in 1879. For more than 100 years, Cotrell Funeral Service has helped families and friends memorialize loved ones, assisting with every detail, from professional burial to cosmetizing and dressing. As one of the oldest funeral homes in the state, Cotrell Funeral Service is also one of the most prestigious, known across Southern Missouri for its high professional and ethical standards.

In 2009, Cotrell became the first and only local funeral home in Southeast Missouri to offer live webcasting of funeral services to family and friends unable to attend, an offering that’s especially beneficial to mourners in college or in the military. In addition to its advanced amenities, Cotrell Funeral Service is also a licensed member of the Missouri State Board of Embalmers & Funeral Directors.
