Welcome to Lankford Monuments

In 1950, W. Clyde Lankford and his wife, Eleanor, opened Colonial Funeral Home at 220 E. New York Avenue in DeLand, FL. They lived above the funeral home on the second and third floors and began raising their children, Cheryl and Larry. In the late 50's, the Lankford's changed the name to Lankford Funeral Home.

By 1965, the business had grown forcing them to expand with the addition of a chapel that would seat 175-200 people in comfort. Today the business has undergone a total renovation to lend a more home like appearance and comfortable surroundings for the families they serve.

Clyde Lankford passed away in March of 2000 and Eleanor in March of 2006. Cheryl L. Lankford, Clyde and Eleanor's daughter, now owns and operates the funeral home on a daily basis.
