With a long, proud history of serving Denver’s African American community, Caldwell-Kirk Mortuary was started in Denver in 1949 by the late William H. Kirk and his late wife Ruby Kirk-Gray as Kirk Mortuary. It moved to its current site in 1960. In 1984, the mortuary was renamed Caldwell-Kirk Mortuary when Elvin Caldwell, Jr., purchased it and became president and general manager. With its sale to the Archdiocese in February 2019, it acquired a new name, Archdiocese of Denver Funeral Home at Caldwell-Kirk.
The Archdiocese of Denver opened its own funeral home in 1981 located on the grounds of Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Wheat Ridge, CO. We were the first Catholic diocese in the United States to own and operate its own funeral home. Since that time, we have served over 20,000 families.
As part of our guiding philosophy of Filling the Void of Loss with Faith, we assist families with planning and facilitating the funeral services of their loved ones.
Our caring funeral home staff stands ready to assist you with all your funeral related needs.
As a non-profit ministry of the Archdiocese of Denver, we are committed to offer innovative programs that provide financial assistance, FREE options, and unique programs that meet the needs of our local community.
