Tell us about your loved one’s passions, personality, hobbies and interests, and we’ll capture the little things that made them special.

Whether you'd like to arrange a traditional funeral service or modern celebration of life, large gathering or more intimate service, we'll work with you one-on-one to ensure your needs and budget are met. From floral arrangements to music selections, decor and more, we guide you through your choices with care.

Cremation in Raleigh

Signature Dedication at Brown-Wynne Funeral HomeThere are many options for cremation in Raleigh—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.

"With my husband's sudden passing, Ryan Mancini, of Wynne Funeral Home immediately came to my aide. With tender compassion, and no pressure, Ryan shared all of my options for my husband's burial. It was an exceptional experience during a very difficult time and I was very impressed with her attention to detail. I would highly recommend Wynne Funeral Home to anyone experiencing the death of a loved one."
