Modern funeral home services

Lobby at Kraeer-Fairchild Funeral Home and Cremation CenterOur North Federal Highway funeral home has a contemporary, beach atmosphere. We are a non-denominational, multicultural funeral home representing all traditions, with years of experience caring for people from all walks of life. We operate our own crematory, which offers traditional cremation or no-flame cremation, known as calcination.

The staff at Kraeer-Fairchild Funeral Home and Cremation Center understands that losing a loved one is a difficult experience, and we are committed to compassionate, professional care. When we sit down to plan a funeral, we have a simple goal: to create a fitting, memorable and affordable service. Together, we explore the variety of options as well as creative ideas.

Personal services that celebrate life

Whether you seek a direct cremation, traditional funeral with a graveside service or a modern celebration of life with a band, food and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one, we go the extra mile to make it happen. And we do so with a level of care and compassion that our families trust.

Want a dove release? An ice cream social? Personalized golf balls as mementos? A memorial service on the beach? Whatever you need, we carefully plan a celebration of life that is as unique as the life it honors.

"I was charged with overseeing my aunt's funeral arrangements, the issue was that she lived in FL and I live in VA. The professionalism that the staff displayed made the whole process easy, like we were in the same room."
