80 Years of Service

Since 1935

Welcome to the Ellis D. Jones & Sons Funeral Directors website.  We offer this site as a continual effort to provide professional, caring, and quality service to the families we serve and the public.


For 80 years, since my grandfather Ellis D. Jones, Sr. (pictured right) started the business, we have provided service to the families of Durham, North Carolina and the surrounding areas of Chapel Hill, Rougemont, Bahama and Hillsborough, North Carolina. It is such an honor to serve the community for four generations and we discussed that with Black Enterprise Magazine.
