Compassionate staff

At Fairhaven Memorial Services, we understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience. As a member of the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, all of our services are designed to help you through one of the most personal and challenging stages of life. Our team can help with the decisions and arrangements that make for a unique and meaningful remembrance, a loving reflection of the person's life.

Welcoming funeral home

Unique features at Fairhaven Memorial ServicesFrom the minute you step into our funeral home, it is our promise to make you feel at home. Our beautiful indoor and outdoor reception center allows families to create a memorial of your choose, conveniently gathering before or after a service to share food, drink and memories. Our chapel invokes Spanish-style architecture with large wooden beams, traditional pew seating and stained glass windows.

Personalized funerals

We also make it our mission to help families create personalized funeral and memorials. This approach keeps us open to traditional religious rites as well as contemporary gatherings that deeply reflect a person's life. Whether you want a basic cremation with cremation remains scattered in a personally meaningful place, a funeral at the funeral home with cemetery burial nearby, or a modern Life Well Celebrated® memorialization complete with live music and a special one-of-a-kind send-off, we are here to deliver. If you can imagine it, we will make it happen. 

Serving the community

Maintaining strong connections to the local community is also a key part of who we are. Our community outreach program includes free workshops, seminars and remembrance events intended to enhance the well-being of the southern Orange County area communities throughout the course of the year.

To honor veterans who have served our country in the Armed Forces, Fairhaven Memorial Services inscribes their name and branch of service on our Military Memorial Monument with a yearly unveiling on Veteran’s Day. 

We also support our local partners in care to provide free continuing education credit events for nurses, case managers, social workers, RCFE administrators, chaplains and fiduciaries.

"Fairhaven is amazing. Michael & his team went above & beyond for us. They took great care of both my mom & my dad. Both services were beautiful, but my dad had military honors done for his & it was just the most touching experience. I will never forget how beautiful it was. At Fairhaven, they treat you like family. If I needed to reach Michael after hours, he was there to answer any questions or assist with anything I needed regarding the care of my parents. I would recommend Fairhaven to anyone for their loved one's service."
