J. Todd Hardee at the South Carolina State Capitol

Welcome to our web site.

If you came to visit because of the death of a loved one, please accept our deepest sympathy. Working with families suffering the loss of a loved one is our business. But it is never easy for those involved... and that includes us.

As Darlington's first funeral home, and after serving more than 14,000 families in our nearly one hundred years in business, you can understand that we personally know many of those we lay to rest. We often experience many of the same emotions that you do because your loved one was our friend, also. So as you grieve, please know that we grieve with you.

If your visit here is for other reasons, please take your time to look around our site. We have put a great deal of time and effort into making sure that it is sensibly organized and that it delivers a wealth of information and resources about funeral topics. From helping a friend through grief, to funeral service pre-funding options and important information for those who may be traveling from out of town, you'll find your answers here.

You're invited to take an inside look at Kistler-Hardee Funeral Home. We've created a special online video tour to help you become familiar with some of our facilities, including our exclusive Children's Nursery, the T. C. Kistler Memorial Chapel (the largest funeral service chapel in Darlington County), and our modern showroom featuring an impressive array of caskets, urns, and vaults.

Finally, we want you to know that our greatest desire is to earn your trust. The principles of our founders, honesty and integrity, have stood the test of time. We continue to stand on those principles as we seek to humbly serve you and your family. Call or visit us today.

What about grief?
