About

Exceptional individuals deserve equally special memorial tributes. As one of the oldest funeral homes in Michigan, Muehlig Funeral Chapel in Ann Arbor continues more than a century of creating lasting memories for those we serve.

Personalized funeral services

We start by listening to you. Tell us about a distinctive personality trait—a lifelong hobby, passion for a vocation or a favorite genre of music—and we will work to incorporate memorable aspects of a personality into a service to be treasured by all who attend. Imagine a red-carpet premiere held in honor of your family’s biggest cinema buff, with a video tribute and buttered popcorn. Envision a gallery of greenery grown by the neighborhood’s favorite gardener, with imprinted packets of seeds for guests to take home and plant in remembrance. Your imagination inspires us—and we always do our professional best to fulfill almost any final wish.

Whether you choose a traditional religious service, military funeral honors or a contemporary celebration of life, trust us to present your options without pressure. Our flexible reception space adapts to guest lists large and small. Our interfaith chapel warmly welcomes celebrants of all faith traditions. We also offer cremation services and maintain close relationships with local cemeteries.

History

Florian C. Muehlig, a German cabinetmaker, founded Muehlig Funeral Chapel to create a funeral home in Ann Arbor. Born in 1810 in Rossbach, Bavaria, Muehlig came to Ann Arbor in 1840. Muehlig Funeral Chapel enjoys the distinct honor of being one of the oldest funeral homes in the state of Michigan, steeped in a tradition of community service and compassionate care.

We continue this tradition today as part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. We’re committed to exceeding expectations and delivering a standard of service that is 100-percent guaranteed.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Our situation was unique, our dear mom, a registered nurse, had donated her body to the UofM Medical School. We wanted all moms wishes to go smoothly. A few years ago we prepaid the $1000. delivery to the UofM Medical School fee. At that time, I also gave Muehlig's a nice photo of mom and wrote an obituary while not stressed. They had all organized

and ready when the sad time came. We are most thankful to them."

"The short lead time we provided to the Muehlig staff (and St. Francis Church) left no time for error. The proper viewing, cremation and burial was due to Kevin, Ryan and the Muehlig staff's hard work. The May family is eternally grateful."
