Today, we uphold a tradition of compassionate care that spans more than 8 decades, and we are here to guide you through every step of memorializing your loved one.

A neighbor and neighborhood institution

Front Exterior at Frederick Funeral HomeOccupying a full city block on Northern Boulevard in Flushing, Frederick Funeral Home can’t be missed. We’ve been in the same location since the 1960s and have played a vital role in the lives of thousands of Queens families.

We can be easily accessed from major highways including Clearview Expressway and Long Island Expressway, as well as public transportation and the Long Island Railroad. Parking is plentiful in our corner lot, and the building is not only handicapped accessible but also includes an elevator.

Our large funeral home is a flexible space that can easily adapt to your family’s needs. Every service is specifically tailored to the wishes of your family, and the people we serve are as diverse as the colorful neighborhoods of Queens itself. From the moment you walk through the doors and into our lobby with the sweeping marble staircase, you will feel welcome.

Highly experienced team

The associates at Frederick Funeral Home in Flushing have more than 100 years of combined experience. Members of our team have lived in Queens and served at the funeral home for 3 decades or longer. We are your trusted friends and neighbors, and there’s no one better to care for you in a difficult time. Several team members are bilingual, and each and every one of us is dedicated to celebrating lives in unique and personalized ways.

Caring, personalized funeral services

Lobby at Frederick Funeral HomeBy working closely with you and asking insightful questions, we discover your loved one through the stories you share. A personal eulogy, thematic decorations, a special song or thoughtful keepsakes all may be part of a memorable funeral service.

This approach keeps us open to traditional religious rites as well as contemporary events. Whether you want a basic cremation with cremated remains scattered in a personally meaningful place, a service at the funeral home with cemetery burial or a memorial followed by fellowship in a neighborhood restaurant, we are happy to facilitate.

Maybe your brother was a hunter or your sister was a tennis player. Maybe your father was passionate about classic cars or your mother performed on Broadway. Whatever the case may be, we bring these unique details together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.
