Our History

In 1938 John B. Ratterman decides to open a second funeral home in Louisville's emerging east end community of St. Matthews. He asked two of his sons, Carl and John Jr. to operate the new facility and it opened in 1939.

This new business grew along with St. Matthews, Carl and John Jr. added on and remodeled the original building several times over the years. Now under the direction of Carl's sons and grandson, Ratterman Brothers has just completed its latest update to make the spacious surroundings even more comfortable for the families it serves.

The Ratterman family, now in its fifth generation of service, has taken care of thousands of families with compassionate care for nearly 150 years. The Ratterman's know that families need to have confidence with experienced professionals in a comfortable and dignified setting at this most difficult time.
