Let's celebrate life

How will you honor your loved one’s legacy? At Brown-Wynne Funeral Home in Cary, we are experts at creating unique and memorable tributes that celebrate the little things that made a person special.

For instance, if he was an avid golfer with a heart of gold, we could host a tournament in his honor with proceeds going to charity. If she loved to travel and take photographs, we'll transform our reception space into a trip around the world, complete with her gorgeous photos on the walls and as centerpieces.

We can find inspiration almost anywhere. Just start with a story and then leave the details—no matter how big or small—to our imaginative team.

See how we celebrate life.

Cary cremation services

Signature Dedication at Brown-Wynne Funeral HomeThere are many options for cremation in Cary—and they're not all equal. We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our all-inclusive 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 something more momentous, 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.

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.

"Robert York is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met. There were many things that he said and did that simply cannot be taught on the job. Robert understood the shock and trauma I was experiencing and because of his kind and caring nature, he made the very difficult process as easy as it could be, under the circumstances. I am very grateful to Robert and staff for their professionalism and for their humanity."

"This is a team of experts that have great regard for how hard the experience of setting up a funeral is on the family of the loved one. They take all the time you need to explain what is needed, listen to you talk about your loved one, and generally they gave me a very strong shoulder to lean on when I was in need of strength and support."
