A Beautiful New Cape Coral Facility

In 2019, a brand-new Coral Ridge Funeral Home opened on the grounds of Coral Ridge Cemetery. Designed to reflect the community's easy Florida culture and with every modern comfort, the state-of-the art facility comprises 8,500 square feet and includes a gorgeous events center.

A light-filled foyer with 25-foot ceilings sets a contemporary tone. The versatile events center holds up to 175 guests and can be arranged for a traditional funeral, a cremation memorial or a celebration of life. A smaller room hosts more intimate gatherings of family and friends. Decor draws on the natural environment, and the sound system is second to none.

The new space was conceived not only as a place for funerals, but also as a community gathering space and venue for events such as weddings, birthday parties and reunions. Our experienced team can help you plan for all kinds of important life occasions.

Personalized funeral services

Chapel at Coral Ridge Funeral Home & CemeteryWith facilities unmatched by any other funeral home in the county, we are honored to help you plan a celebration that reflects her personality and passions of yourself or a loved ones. We can help you find inspiration almost anywhere—in a favorite song, hobby or even an iconic style—and turn that inspiration into a memorial filled with thoughtful and meaningful details.

Whether you are seeking a basic cremation with a champagne toast and cremains scattered in the Gulf of Mexico, a traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial, or a creative event complete with live music, favorite foods and drinks, and funeral favors, we take care of every detail. We are here to help you and your family celebrate life like no other.

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.

History

The oldest existing building in Cape Coral first appeared on the county tax register in 1947. Back then, the city it was a destination for winter visitors searching for relaxation and good fishing. The building was a hotel, which eventually served for years as the offices and chapel for Coral Ridge Funeral Home and Coral Ridge Cemetery.

In 2019, on the grounds of the cemetery and very near the original building, Coral Ridge Funeral Home opened a state-of-the-art events center to better meet the needs of its contemporary Florida community.
