Our home is your home

Chapel at Mitchell Funeral Home at Raleigh Memorial ParkMitchell Funeral Home at Raleigh Memorial Park meets all of your memorial, cremation and hospitality needs in one welcoming place. Unlike some funeral homes that offer clients only one room or designated area, we want families to consider all our spaces theirs to use as long as they need it.

The funeral home’s Glenwood Center specializes in catered receptions and nontraditional services. The center accommodates up to 75 for a seated dinner or up to 200 for a standing reception. Our professional, compassionate funeral home team is here to create an experience that celebrates each individual’s unique qualities.

Custom funeral ideas

Was your loved one a world-class grill master? We can put together a cookout. Maybe her recipes for banana pudding and chocolate chess pie are worthy of a dessert buffet? We can display a collection of paintings or quilts, dress up in sports jerseys or theatrical costumes, or release 100 red balloons.

From small touches like photos and funeral favors to over-the-top decor and a live marching band—whatever the case may be—we can craft a memorial that warms hearts and lifts spirits. Let's start with a story and go from there.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements. If you wish, cremated remains can be placed at Raleigh Memorial Park.

"Like many people, it was my first time having to make funeral arrangements of any kind. The funeral director was very sympathetic of my emotional state and explained carefully all the available options and asked my opinion of what I thought my loved one wanted. Everything was covered with none of my questions left unanswered. I was really nervous about having to do this but Robin quickly made me feel comfortable and gave me the knowledge I needed to make my decisions. The follow up phone calls were very well done."
