Our History

Peachtree Cremation Services is honored to serve Newton County and all of Metro Atlanta.  We have been serving families since 2013.  Peachtree has a proud tradition of taking care of families during the loss of a loved one with care and professionalism.  

Peachtree Cremation Services in 2017 merged with Covington Crematory.  Covington Crematory was started by Bill Wheeler and served families of Covington for years.  Peachtree Cremation and Covington Crematory merged in order to fulfill a larger vision of serving families throughout the Metro Atlanta area.  We want to provide direction, help, and service to more families from all of the Atlanta region. 

We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have about the death of a loved one.  It will be an honor to help and serve you during your time of grief.
