A welcoming Texas funeral home

Navarre is a comfortable venue to plan funerals, memorials, remembrance receptions and cremations. Located on Rollingbrook Drive, our newly renovated funeral home has a residential look and feel inside and out, and it includes a nondenominational chapel and space for catered events. Whether you are looking to hold a traditional funeral service, contemporary celebration or cremation gathering, we are here to guide you every step of the way. Our goal is to tell unique stories of unique lives and create opportunities for communion and healing.

Residents of Baytown since 1967, the Navarre family built their business on personal attention, value and compassionate service. Our team understands the importance of community. We are your friends and neighbors—and we are always here for you.

Personalized memorials that celebrate life

The professionals at Navarre pride themselves on asking good questions and anticipating needs. We specialize in creating services that deeply reflect your personality or that of your loved one. With a custom memorial, you can celebrate in the way that fits your family’s traditions and preferences. Just let us know what you need.

We are happy to arrange catering—from a breakfast buffet to a sit-down dinner, cake and coffee to a taco social. We can decorate virtually any way you choose, creating a fisherman’s paradise, a sports fan’s dream, an artist’s studio or a fashionista’s closet. We also provide honorable and distinguished veterans services.

From a butterfly release to a barbecue, a fireworks display to a military salute, the list of what we can do is nearly endless. Start with a story—we’ll take it from there, arranging every detail from venue to food to music and more.

Cremation services at Navarre

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation choices. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different memorial and burial options. From a direct cremation without a service or a witness to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice.

Lean on us

We are always available to take your call right away, day or night, and we welcome you to tour the funeral home. Please don’t hesitate to reach out, whether you are planning ahead or have an immediate need.

History

Jess and Clara Navarre moved to Baytown from Dayton in 1967 with their three children, Mike, Chris and Judy. In their new hometown, they established Baytown Ambulance Service, which they ran until 1994. In 1984, the family acquired Paul U. Lee Funeral Home, which had served Baytown and the surrounding area since 1923. Jess and Clara had worked in the funeral business in Dayton, and when they purchased the Baytown funeral home, they changed the business name to reflect their own. Today, Navarre Funeral Home & Cremation Services is part of the Dignity Memorial® network. As North America's largest group of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, the Dignity Memorial brand is your assurance of quality, value, caring service and exceptional customer satisfaction.
