About

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.

Your trusted funeral provider

Funeral service options have evolved in our many decades in business, but our commitment to high standards remains unchanged. Our funeral home in Merritt Island has responded to changing times, and you can expect to find our team dedicated to your every need.

Whether you seek a direct cremation; traditional funeral with a graveside service and cemetery burial; or a modern celebration of life with live music, catering 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 it with a high level of care.

Do you want a dove release? You got it. How about the best seafood in Merritt Island? You can have that too. What about personalized golf balls as mementos? Yes. The list is virtually endless. Our team will take the time to visit with your family and help plan a personalized memorial honoring your loved one's life.

"My Mom when she was alive made all the arrangements with the funeral home for her and Dad. When she passed, and now Dad, it was easy to just pick up the phone and execute against their wishes. There wasn't any second guessing and everything was done as planned."
