About Us

Our History

The founder, Henry W. Anderson, started this funeral home 85 years ago in Minneapolis at the start of the depression in 1931. Through the years we have worked hard to earn our commendable widespread reputation, walking and working with the families we serve through this, typically, very difficult time to create an honorable and meaningful tribute for their loved one.

At Henry W. Anderson Mortuary, we take great pride in what we do. Our purpose is to:

  • Help families make well-planned preparations in their time of need
  • Provide a peaceful and soothing environment where people can gather to honor a loved one
  • Preserve longstanding traditions and customs
  • Offer personalized and affordable services and products
  • Reach out to the greater community

We believe that the success of any business requires dedication and professionalism. In our business, in particular, it also requires a great deal of kindness, compassion and attention to detail. You’ll find these qualities in each and every member of our staff here at Henry W. Anderson Mortuary.

Put your trust in us to make this experience as comfortable as possible.

Henry W. Anderson Mortuary,  Funeral Home and Cremation Services is proud to be a third generation, family owned and operated funeral home with two locations.
