We understand that today the cost of most things is important to everyone. Our "family owned" philosophy of providing the best service, facilities and care at the most reasonable price is our goal. We serve all Oregon coastal and surrounding communities. The Original Bateman Funeral Home was founded around 1914 by the Bateman family. Some of the Bateman family members continue to reside in Lincoln County. Offering meaningful personal service since 1914, we are a local family owned company providing the most reasonably priced memorials, funeral, cremation and cemetery services for all Oregon coastal communities.
Our ownership and management is with Brian Norris, a licensed funeral director and celebrant who is active in his community and resides in Newport with his family. Brian's business partner, David Schroeder is also a licensed funeral director and a long-time Oregon Coast native, born and raised in Tillamook County. We are unique in the fact that our local family owned and managed funeral homes and cemeteries operate the only certified “on-site” crematories with certified technicians in Lincoln County. This assures no out of town transport costs and the highest private professional standards available. Our family is also associated with three other convenient family owned locations serving the greater Portland Metro Area. Our entire facilities have undergone design reviews with a focus on developing the most unique, modern and pleasant memorial event centers in Lincoln County, while maintaining reasonable prices.
What separates us from many other funeral homes?
We are family owned and operated and have chapel and reception areas for your convenience while offering Lincoln County's lowest published prices for funeral and cremation services. We also own and operate the only two certified "on-site" cremation centers in Lincoln County. They are located at each of our facilities in Newport and Lincoln City. Other funeral homes are required to transport to a third party crematory operator and have little control over when the cremation takes place or when the ashes are returned to you. We can assure no out of town transport costs and your loved one does not leave our care. Our certified crematory operators assure the highest possible standards right here in your community.
Each of our properties offers mortuary, funeral home, cemetery, personalized memorial arrangements and private crematory services at their individual locations. For your convenience, arrangements can be made at your home, over the phone or at one of our convenient locations. You can reach any of our locations by simply calling our local phone at (541) 265-2751.
