About

For more than 65 years, Fillmore & Whitman Funeral Home has provided families in Sydney Mines and surrounding areas with funeral, burial, cremation and cemetery services. But beyond that, we have provided the community with the highest level of care and compassion you will find anywhere.

We take caring for your family to heart. Our welcoming and comfortable facility resembles exactly that—and it is staffed by experienced professionals.

Personalized touch

We know losing a loved one is hard, and we're here to guide you through planning a funeral or memorial every step of the way. We offer everything from a wholly traditional church funeral and cemetery burial to a modern celebration of life with live music, catering and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one.

Whatever your vision or your loved one's wishes, we go the extra mile to make it happen. Do you want a dove release? You got it. How about personalized sparklers as a memento? You can have those, too. What about cupcakes with purple frosting? The list is literally endless.
