Gross Funeral Home

For more than 125 years, Gross has served Hot Springs families and is one of the oldest funeral home establishments in the state. The business now known as Gross Funeral Home first opened in 1874 and has been at its current location since 1981. Although the names and faces have changed over the years, one thing has not. We are people to depend on. Gross Funeral Home offers beauty and comfort during your time of need. It is designed to provide you and your family with an atmosphere of quiet dignity. Comfortable sitting rooms, a lounge, and a visitation room are available for your loved ones to gather. Our spacious chapel can comfortably host large gatherings, yet still retains the charm for those more private services. Gross also offers The Simplicity Plan® prearrangement program, an easy way to handle an important family responsibility. As a note of interest, the service for Virginia Clinton, mother of President Bill Clinton, was arranged by Gross Funeral Home in 1994. We also offer our comfortable surroundings to area groups and organizations for events such as meetings, seminars, classes, fund-raising events, school or church socials, concerts, off-site company gatherings, cook-outs/barbecues, dinners/receptions, and even weddings.
