Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our doors we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Learn the legacy.

Al Jenkins Funeral Home is proud to be family owned and operated. We trace our community roots to our inception in 1969 when Alphonso Jenkins opened a funeral home on Elloree, South Carolina.

​We believe in the importance of a locally owned choice and a name you can trust. Though much has changed in last 40 years, our commitment to providing the highest quality burial, cremation and funeral services to Orangeburg families of all faiths, beliefs, traditions and cultures has never wavered.

​For this reason we are one of the most preferred family-owned funeral homes and crematorium in the Orangeburg, SC area. We pride ourselves on serving families with the highest level of care, compassion and personal attention at a reasonable price. It is our tireless dedication to supporting and guiding our community during a time of loss that makes us unique.
