About

For more than 50 years, Fountainhead Funeral Home has provided funeral and cremation services to families in and around Palm Bay, Florida. We believe that there's no greater honor than telling the story of someone's life. Our team of funeral professionals takes great care when helping families create memorable memorials for their loved ones.

Your dedicated Palm Bay funeral home

Established in 1966 by J.J. Finnegan Sr., Fountainhead Funeral Home serves families from Palm Bay, Melbourne, Malabar and beyond. Located on Babcock Street, adjacent to Fountainhead Memorial Park, our funeral home is a comfortable place to plan a service. With an abundance of natural light and flexible areas for services and catered receptions, it also has the latest technology, so your music selections and tribute videos can be played to perfection. Need us to create a tribute video? We take care of it all.

Details displayNot only does the team at Fountainhead Funeral Home understand that losing a loved one can be a difficult experience, we also know that every life is unique and every family is different. That's why we take time to learn about your loved one. How did she live her life? What was their favorite pastime? What made them smile?

Let’s plan a memorial as special as the person it honors. We can find inspiration almost anywhere. Simply start with a story. We'll take it from there.

Traditional and contemporary services

Standard reception venue at Fountainhead Funeral Home & Memorial ParkAt Fountainhead Funeral Home, we are committed to helping families create meaningful tributes that celebrate everything that makes loved ones extraordinary. From a simple cremation with a scattering at a personally meaningful place to a full traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial and a coffee-and-cake reception, we handle every detail.

Host a clambake, complete with a live band and personalized mementos, or invite friends and family to a hot-rod-themed cocktail hour where guests can snap selfies with his beloved muscle car. A funeral or memorial service can be as simple or elaborate as you desire.

We have lots of ideas.

Cremation in Palm Bay

Signature dedication at Fountainhead Funeral Home & Memorial ParkThere are many options for cremation in the Palm Bay area—and they're not all equal. We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our all-inclusive 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.

If you're interested in cemetery placement, our sister cemetery, Fountainhead Memorial Park is the prettiest in the area. For those who wish for something more momentous, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida.

And what's more appropriate for a space fan, NASA employee or contractor than Celestis Memorial Spaceflight, which takes ashes into space for a little while or forever?

"I am thankful first to my Daddy who chose Fountainhead Memorial as the place that would prep his passing. Although he had arranged this service years in advance, I'm impressed that they were able to measure up even under the circumstances of a pandemic."
