About Us

Ransdell Funeral Chapel was established in February of 1963 by David and Lois Wilson Ransdell.  The Ransdells purchased the former Glave Sims Funeral Home and property, later building a new facility and chapel designed specifically as a funeral establishment. 

Ransdell Funeral Chapel is truly a "family" operation.  The Ransdell's oldest child, C. David (Sonny) Ransdell IV, joined the firm following college in 1986.  Soon thereafter, daughter, Sonya Shannon, and her husband, Tim Shannon, began working for the funeral business.

The Ransdells have built their business from the ground....up, establishing a reputation based upon trust.  They are proud of the VALUE they bring to the folks in Harrodsburg and Mercer County. 

"We understand what it is like to struggle from week to week.  Our early years were difficult.  We worked hard and treated every family the way we would like to be treated, earning the confidence of our community.  We understand, and genuinely appreciate, the sacred trust people place in us." says David Ransdell
