Cherokee County and Spartanburg Cremations
J. F. Floyd Mortuary has several locations in Spartanburg, South Carolina. It is the largest city in its namesake county, and the twelfth largest city in the state. The area was once a highly cherished hunting region by the Catawba and Cherokee tribes, and therefore boasts quite a bit of beautiful scenery. Popular attractions include Lawson’s Fork Creek, the Cottonwood Trail, and Hatcher Garden, and Woodland Preserve. Combined with a temperate climate for much of the year, Spartanburg is undoubtedly a beautiful choice for the location of a cremation ceremony for a cherished loved one.
Founded in the 1800s by an Irish immigrant, Gaffney, South Carolina is one of the largest cities J. F. Floyd provides cremation services for. The city, located in the northernmost part of the state, has only a modest population, but quite a bit of history. Gaffney also hosts a popular farmer’s market weekly, and also offers a very popular summer concert series.
Additionally, Gaffney is known as ‘The Peach Capital’ of South Carolina, and boasts of its love for the fruit with a 150-foot tall peach-shaped water tower that has become a popular tourist attraction, known as ‘the Peachoid.’
Blacksburg Cremation Services
North of Gaffney sits the small town of Blacksburg. Just off Interstate 85, and just four miles south of the North Carolina border, Blacksburg was founded in the 1800s and it owes its early growth to a discovery of iron ore in the area. Though Blacksburg was incorporated into the state in 1888 with its current name, it still holds the nickname ‘Iron City.’
Cherokee Falls Cremations
Just south of Blacksburg lies an unincorporated community called Cherokee Falls. Sitting aside the Broad River, Cherokee falls was formally a mill town, until disincorporation in the late 1990s. Once the Cherokee Falls Cotton Mill, this historic place is now a large distributor of Herbie’s Famous Fireworks.
Cremations in Kings Creek
Kings Creek is an extremely small community located in Cherokee County, South Carolina. It is best known for its glorious set of trails and waterfalls in the area, popular with hikers and nature-lovers alike. Kings Creek, Cherokee Falls, and Blacksburg are but a few minutes away from each other, and they are about a half an hour north east of Spartanburg, South Carolina, the heart of J. F. Floyd Mortuary’s operations.
To J. F. Floyd Mortuary’s north lies the extremely small town of Chesnee, whose last recorded population was just 1,003 people. Despite its size, Chesnee has much to offer visitors, including the historical Cowpens National Battlefield, Strawberry Hill USA, the Zeno Hicks House, and the more eclectic Carolina Foothills resort, a family-oriented nudist camp.
J. F. Floyd Mortuary’s experienced staff recommends a full funeral and/or memorial service before choosing to have a loved one cremated. With a focus on helping devastated families move through the grieving process and heal, choosing to have a ceremony beforehand is said to help this immensely, as someone’s need for a healing experience is not lessened by their decision to choose cremation. They stress strongly that cremation is simply a way that a family has decided to deal with remains, and the best decision for a family is to choose services that help them to grieve and heal in the best way. They have a very wide range of services available that can be held before the cremation ceremony, and the way you wish to honor your loved one at J. F. Floyd Mortuary is proclaimed to be ‘only limited by your imagination.’
