Moore Funeral Service, a family owned and operated business, began serving the Hattiesburg, MS area in 1959 when Ethan Moore purchased the Quigley Funeral Home in Hattiesburg. It was operated as Quigley-Moore Funeral Home until 1965 when the name became Moore Funeral Service. In 1967, Moore purchased the Dees Funeral Home in Wiggins, and, in 1972, the Hattiesburg and Wiggins facilities were incorporated as Moore Funeral Homes, Inc. Steve Moore joined the firm in 1974, and Greg Moore came aboard in 1978, thus creating a family partnership.
The Purvis chapel was built in 1980. With the opening of the Petal chapel in 1994, Moore Funeral Services now proudly serves the South-Central Mississippi area with four locations. Each facility has been equipped to provide state of the art services for the entire vicinity which it serves.
With the additions of Brett Moore in 2007, Steven Moore in 2011 and Alexa Moore in 2016, the tradition of serving our families and community continues for a third generation.
The family-held corporation also includes Moore Funeral Insurance Company.
