A welcoming Indianapolis funeral home

Lobby at Williams & Bluitt Funeral HomeThough some things have changed in our 20-plus years in business, one thing has not: Williams & Bluitt treats people like family. Our professional funeral directors prioritize personal attention and deep compassion. With an understanding of the special care that families need after losing loved ones, they offer professional guidance every step of the way.

Located on East 38th Street, between Audubon Gardens and Devington, our red brick two-story building is a comfortable place to plan a funeral or cremation. Someone will always greet you at the door with a smile—and a hug if you need it. 

The funeral home has plenty of parking and a chapel with flexible seating for more than 200. It can be set up with rows of chairs for a traditional memorial or tables and chairs for a more contemporary funeral and reception. For the latter, we are happy to arrange catering—from a breakfast buffet to a sit-down dinner, cake and coffee to an ice cream social. We can decorate the room any way you choose, turning the space into a racing fan’s paradise, a outdoorsman’s dream, an artist’s tribute or a movie lover’s last red carpet event. Our mission is to create memorable memorials that tell unique stories and celebrate life.

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.

Pre-plan a funeral at Williams & Bluitt

Arrangement room at Williams & Bluitt Funeral HomePlanning a funeral ahead of time allows you to make clear-headed, stress-free decisions about the kind of service you’d like. When you pre-plan your funeral, you select the things that will tell your story best and relieve your family of the emotional and financial burden of planning for you. You also lock in today’s prices—something that inevitably saves money. Pre-planning discussions can sometimes be awkward, but we can help with hard conversations. A dedicated team member knows just how to explain your options and support you the whole way through.
