Cremations in Waynesboro, GA

One of the cities serviced is Waynesboro. Waynesboro is a nice little city with a modest population of 5,766, according to the 2010 census. Well worth seeing is the Waynesboro Commercial Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Waynesboro is 5.5 square miles in size and located in the center of Burke County. The city was officially incorporated as the City of Waynesboro in 1883, and it is known as the “Bird Dog Capital of the World.” The city got its name from General Anthony Wayne, a local revolutionary war hero. There is also a stone monument marking the site where George Washington spent the night in 1791.

Cremation in Blythe, GA

Blythe is a hidden gem. It is only 2.8 square miles in size, and according to the 2010 census has a population of merely 721 people. Blythe occupies both Burke and Richmond counties. It is a growing city with very low poverty rates and a high quality of life – perfect for any young family looking for a stable situation. Blythe is home to all walks of life, and residents are more than welcoming to tourists passing through or people looking to plant roots in a blossoming and thriving area. Platt’s Funeral Home provides all of its services to Blythe.

Sardis Cremations

Not quite able to break into four-digit territory, Sardis came in with a population of 999 people in the census of 2010. The wide variety of services offered by Platt’s Funeral Home is not limited to these cities, however. Everything offered is also available in Girard, Coleman Lake, Greenway, Herndon, Midville, Gough, Keysville, Munnerlyn, and Shell Bluff.
