Bentley’s Funeral Home was founded in 1923 by the late Deacon J.E. Bentley Sr. and his wife Mrs. Ida Carson Bentley in Reynolds, Georgia. Their motto; “Let me stand by the side of the road and be a friend to man” became the foundation on which their business has stood for generations.

Bentley-Carson Memorial Funeral Home is locally owned and operated and we stand ready to meet your needs and provide attention to every detail when you and your family need it most. We have a good understanding of your needs during the hardest of times. When a death occurs, there are details to take care of, decisions and arrangements to be made. Our professional, licensed staff assumed those responsibilities for you, and you can depend on us to provide a service that is truly memorable, flawlessly planned, and accurate to the smallest detail.

Bentley-Carson Memorial Funeral Home of Cordele, Georgia was established when Mrs. Lockhart and her late husband Mr. Abraham Lockhart moved here in the 1990's.
