Building relationships

As a locally operated funeral home in Norwich, we focus on providing families personal attention throughout the funeral planning process. Several staff members grew up in the area and continue to call it home. This enables our team to offer compassionate care while meeting the needs of our community. At R. J. Fahy Funeral Home, your family becomes a part of ours.

Celebrate your loved one

As we carefully guide you through the planning process, we'll discuss affordable funeral and cremation options as well as suggest innovative ways to honor life.

Whether you prefer a contemporary celebration, simple cremation or traditional burial, all of our services are fully customizable. We respect your values and traditions, and we work to design a service that showcases individuality. Tell us about your loved one, including their hobbies, achievements and personality. While planning, we'll design a service with these in mind, so friends and family can experience a true celebration of 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.

Future planning

How to Plan a Memorial ServiceIn addition to serving families who have an immediate need, our staff can also help plan ahead a funeral service. Preparing for the future keeps costs managed and ensures your wishes are met. We can arrange every detail, including casket or urn choices and final resting places in nearby cemeteries and mausoleums. Those who plan in advance also spare their loved ones from making important decisions during a difficult time.
