Celebrating Charlotte Memories Since 1946

At Hankins & Whittington Funeral Service, nestled in the historic heart of Dilworth, we have provided families in the Charlotte area with customizable memorial services for many years. Our services are crafted to honor your loved ones in ways that are both deeply meaningful and healing.


Our rich history began in 1946 when Irvin W. Hankins and James B. Whittington took the reins of the Crouch Funeral Home. The growth of our service and the community's support led to our move in March 1963 to the current location—once St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, built in 1930. Our chapel, a cherished historic landmark within the storied Dilworth neighborhood, is renowned for being the only funeral home in Charlotte graced with its own chapel, echoing with decades of history and serenity.


More than the beauty of our historic location, we are known for the compassion and dedication our staff extends to every family we meet. The creativity and personal touch we bring to our services have become a hallmark of Hankins & Whittington. Celebrating memories since 1946, we are honored by the reputation we've established and by the trust the people of Charlotte place in us, decade after decade.

Hankins and Whittington was very nice and polite throughout our whole experience. Morgan was very helpful in guiding us through the experience. She was always available to answer any questions we had. Joe was also very helpful the night of visitation and for the funeral. When we discovered a problem at the cemetery Joe stayed and made sure that it was corrected. We have used Hankins and Whittington services as long as I can remember and will continue to use them.
