L ocated conveniently in the Historic Midtown District, Cochran Mortuary & Crematory features an on-site crematory and the Chapel of the Roses, Wichita's most beautiful funeral chapel.
A sign once said, "Back door friends are the best friends." Maybe its a bit ironic that the main entrance to our mortuary is in the back. William F. Cochran, Sr. once said that people do not come to mortuaries easily so let's keep it like a home. You can park in our lighted parking lot, (located behind the mortuary off of Market Street) and already you can sense the homey atmosphere of this old victorian home. Visitation occurs in a stateroom where the original living room was located.
The Chapel of the Roses was added in 1959 and seats 175 family and guests. The foyer commonly is decorated with photographs and memorabilia. Guests may choose to view the casket or step over and view the Video Tribute as they mingle and recall fond memories.
