McGann Hay Granger Chapel

Elegance and Tranquility 

 




Our facility in Granger is our newest location, open in November of 2005.  Often admired for it's beauty of the building and landscape outside by passersby, people are usually impressed by the "Wow Factor" when they enter through the front doors into the Grand Entrance Hall.  Many within the funeral industry say this is one of the largest, most elegant funeral homes in the whole country.  It's custom design features a full service kitchen, buffet and lounge decorated in an Italian Tuscan theme. The Children's Room has an X-Box/DVD Player with a Hot Air Balloon and Sports Theme to give kids a place to get awa
y and enjoy themselves and not misbehave. Our fire places add warmth, tranquil outdoor gardens with waterfalls, ponds, and a unique outdoor sanctuary allow for a peaceful place to stroll and sit to gather composure or chat.  We have three viewing rooms: The Presidents Room (decorated with Presidential Portraits and Memorabilia), The Chrystal Room (it has a chandelier with 10,000 little crystals that is lit 24/7 and has become a Granger Landmark, visible at night in the middle of our building)  and the Waterfall Chapel (just outside the windows are the headwaters of our Waterfalls Pond on the corner of Cherry Rd. & SR 23). This allows configurations to be sized perfectly to honor a small family or to accommodate an extremely large funeral service of a young person or public figure. We are fire rated for 1,000 people. You must stop by to take a look around at this truly beautiful and unique facility.

Lounge / Community/
Gathering Room/Restrooms


Positioned in a separate area from the chapels, but adjacent to the foyer, our Lounge / Community Gathering Room will truly make you feel like you are in a home, rather than a commercial building.
A buffet table to present food & drinks, comfortable chairs, sofas and small café tables & chairs are available sit, eat, talk and tell stories and just get away.  A real working fire place and fluttering butterfly collection add to the warmth of this room.  Ample private stall bathrooms with interior separate full-doors allow family and friends to collect themselves if necessary in a private setting.
We are really proud of the Ladies Room which features faux painted walls and a "new mother's" nursing area.

Full Kitchen























                   

Our Full Service Kitchen available for everyone's use will allow your family and friends the option to stay and gather after the visitation or funeral service, therefore eliminating the need to quickly clean your home or coordinate last minute restaurant arrangements.  We are able to cater a full meal after a funeral or memorial service or a veggie, fruit, cheese & cracker, desert or sandwich trays to put out during visitations. Stainless Steel appliances, light Maple cabinets with dark crown molding, and an island with stools and beautiful counter tops will make you feel at home.  As in most homes this is a great place to talk and enjoy a snack or drink.  We always have free pop, water, premium regular and decaf coffee, hot chocolate and hot tea at all our funeral homes
.

Children's Room

 

Our Children's Room is a nice get away where kids can be kids. The Children's Room has an X-Box/DVD Player with a Hot Air Balloon and Sports Theme to give kids a place to get away and enjoy themselves without parental worry of misbehaving. A comfortable baseball glove chair and big soft pillows as well as a kids table and chair set for reading and coloring adorn the space.  Located adjacent to the Lounge it allows for parental supervision with plenty of windows looking in and not too much privacy.







Community Meetings, Weddings & Gatherings
Riding the crest of the wave, we built this facility with the idea of other non-funeral uses in mind our Granger Chapel is one of the first in the country and the first in this are
a to be built with this purpose in mind.  A new trend nationwide is for funeral homes to make better use of  their facilities in otherwise "DownTimes"  when they do not normally have funerals or produce income.  This is primarily Saturday Evenings and Sunday Mornings for large events.  Smaller groups can be accommodated at other times and days often without charge.  To date, we have hosted weddings and meetings up to 350 people, receptions and dinners up to 250 with a dance floor or 275 without a dance floor.  Our Outdoor Chapel for weddings has seating for about 85 people, with "back up" right inside if it rains.  When you think about it we have weddings AND funerals in most churches and places of worship.  Once your guests see how beautiful our facility is they will forget
any negatives.  You must schedule a time to came see our wonderful possibilities.
