|About||Carter Funeral Home- Ellerbe is a locally owned Funeral Home serving families of Richmond and surrounding counties.|
Carter Funeral Home was founded in 1958, but our roots go back even further to 1946 when Don and Ruby Sedberry opened the doors of their home on Fayetteville Road as the Sedberry Funeral Home.
The Sedberry’s served families of Richmond County with the utmost care and compassion. When they decided to sell the family business, a young Ellerbe native agreed to purchase the business. Eldridge and Mary Carter purchased the stately Hamer residence in the Watson Heights section of Rockingham to begin their long careers in funeral service as Carter-Sedberry Funeral Home. For 40 years the Carters maintained the integrity that had been started by the Sedberry family. In 1998 the Carter family made the decision to sell the business to Jack and Joan Briggs, funeral directors from nearby Candor, Denton and Lexington, and to Gary Overcash who had formerly worked with the Carter’s.
Jack Briggs serves as President of the company, Gary Overcash is Vice President and Genral Manager, Joan Briggs serves as Secretary and the Briggs son Dan serves as company Treasurer.
Maintaining the firm heritage of care and compassion that has been the backbone of the business since its founding in 1946 remains today the number one priority of the owners and staff of Carter Funeral Home.
