About

Swan Funeral Home began as C. Carl Swan Funeral Home in Guilford, Connecticut, in 1917. Our funeral home in Old Saybrook has served the local community since May 1963. We are here to celebrate life, supporting families through difficult times, providing caring funeral and cremation services, and creating lasting legacies.

Our team and services

For more than a century, Swan Funeral Home has provided professional, compassionate funeral care, offering a personalized experience for families. We offer a broad range of services and welcome people of all faiths and cultural backgrounds. Maybe you are seeking a basic cremation with a scattering in a personally meaningful place, or maybe your loved one wanted a full traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial. Or perhaps a creative outdoor celebration complete with live music, personal tributes and funeral favors is the order of the day. Whatever you need, we are here to help you and your family remember and honor a life.

In addition, we host community events annually in honor of our veterans and work closely with local veterans organizations. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran’s memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

"It was very helpful having the ' one stop shopping' experience where the church, cemetery, obituary, limousine, and other services were included in one invoice with Swan. The staff took care of all the details so the family would not need to worry."
