About Us

In 1954, Alfonso Dawson and his wife Elizabeth Latimer Dawson opened their first funeral home in Warrenton, Georgia. Their dreams lead them to the 'big city" of Atlanta. With Alfonso's phenomenal business sense and vision, Elizabeth's grace and style, Alfonso Dawson Mortuary opened it's door for service at 3000 Gordon Road (presently Martin Luther King Jr. Dr.) in December 1965. Our family firm has served the Atlanta, metropolitan community for over 50 years. With the second generation of Dawsons at the helm, the business is evolving just as the funeral industry and the changing desires of the families we serve. Families are also more budget and consumer conscience. All of which we welcome, because we realize that as 21st century funeral professionals, we must stay informed, educated, creative and in touch with our community. We also offer pre-need arranging, financing and grief counseling, serving all religions and nationalities. When you step into our mortuary, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. The warm colors and beautiful furnishings often surprise, and actually relax, all who visit our firm. Cadillac Limousines and hearses are the preferred choice of our firm. Alfonso decided that from the beginning. We must admit, they do make a beautiful presentation. Understanding the importance of a first class, educated staff, we employ several licensed funeral directors and embalmers, a full time accountant, drivers, a licensed barber-cosmetologist, a licensed insurance agent and a Spanish interpreter. When a final tribute to your loved one requires the service of a professional funeral firm, consider Alfonso Dawson Mortuary, Inc. We are committed to offering caring, personalized service to each family as we honor our past while looking toward the future.
