The tradition of Wylie-Baxley Funeral Home dates back to 1894. For more than 70 years, we were the only funeral home serving central Brevard County, and we built a reputation for compassionate, professional funeral and cremation services—a reputation that we uphold to this day.

"I'd never experienced having to fly someone out-of-state for their Funeral. Wylie-Baxley Funeral Home walked me through the steps, explained the purpose for the steps, answered all my questions & ensured me everything was finalized, for Mom to return home for her Funeral. Wylie-Baxley Funeral Home is compassionate, patient , ensures you understand the entire process, they don't push to sell their extras, & takes the time to answer any questions concerning your subject matter.
