About

Smith-McCracken Funeral Home in Newton, New Jersey, provides affordable care that exceeds expectations. Our team of committed associates treats every family as our own and always has your best interests at heart. We’ll guide you through the process of planning a funeral or cremation from start to finish, meeting your needs and honoring your family traditions and personal preferences.

We know that losing a loved one is an emotional and challenging experience, and our mission at Smith-McCracken Funeral Home is to alleviate as much stress as possible. By devoting ourselves to the utmost care and attention at the time of need, guiding your family through the grieving and healing process, and sharing the benefits of pre-planning, we build lasting relationships.

A welcoming Newton funeral home

Smith-McCracken Funeral Home, situated in the heart of Newton, has been serving families of all faiths and from all walks of life for over 100 years. Our four-story, Prairie style dwelling, with Renaissance style architecture, boasts of two spacious chapels and a reception area, giving us the ability to accommodate funerals and memorials of all sizes.

Traditional and contemporary funeral services

When you first meet with a Smith-McCracken Funeral Home funeral director, we'll ask questions about your loved one: what he liked to do, what she cherished, how he thought about the world, how she liked to spend time. From there, we create a service that speaks to the unique life of your loved one, whether that's a traditional religious funeral or a contemporary and upbeat celebration of life. You can inspire us with a memory of your loved one, a hobby that grew into a passion, a favorite music genre or a signature style, and we will work to gracefully incorporate as many personal elements as you would like into the service. Start with a story—we’ll take it from there.

Imagine it: From scrapbooking to sailboats, guitars to golf balls, prize-winning roses to prize-winning roadsters, we take the things that mattered to someone and string them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial.

Our team is experienced in planning catered events. Whether it's a breakfast buffet after a morning service, cake and coffee in the afternoon, or a full dinner reception, just let us know what you have in mind. We'll handle food, drink, decor and more. We will also help you write an obituary, create a multimedia tribute video for the service and assist you in choosing music.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in this increasingly common decision, the funeral home team can explain the process and different choices. From a direct cremation without a memorial service to a witness cremation or a full funeral service before or after the cremation, we help you understand this tradition—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

Cremated remains may be picked up at the funeral home or we will deliver them to your home. We also offer cremation jewelry, which is a special way to keep the memory of a loved one close.

Planning ahead

At Smith-McCracken Funeral Home, we also recognize that funeral arrangements and associated expenses can be overwhelming. In addition to assisting during a time of immediate need, our funeral directors specialize in working with families to plan ahead. By preparing in advance, you provide a sense of relief, peace of mind and comfort for your loved ones while ensuring your wishes are met and your budget is maintained. A complimentary planning guide comes with no obligation.
