Personalized funerals

How will you honor your loved one’s legacy? At Mitchell Funeral Home at Raleigh Memorial Park, we are experts at creating unique and memorable tributes that celebrate a person’s passions and personality.

If your loved one was a world-class grill master, we can put together a celebratory 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 details like photos and funeral favors to custom decor and a live band—whatever the case may be—we can craft a memorial that warms hearts, lifts spirits and deeply reflects the life of your loved one.

We offer many planning ideas and resources.

Cremation in Raleigh

Signature dedication at Mitchell Funeral Home at Raleigh Memorial ParkThere 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 facilities for outdoor services, 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, Raleigh Memorial Park, is among the prettiest in the area.

And for those who wish for something more momentous, 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.

"Steven Mitchell could not have been any better!! As someone who has never been through this before, Steven was very professional and not pressuring us to do anything we did not want for our Father. He also brought up ideas we would have never thought of that we implemented into the service right down to the smallest detail. The entire staff was also more than happy to cater to our needs as well!! Thank you all!!!"

"My funeral director Stephen Mitchell was there for me throughout the entire experience of planning for my son's memorial service and cremation at Mitchell's funeral home. I knew and still know I am not alone and can still call on Mitchell's if I need anything else. After burying my father also this year and using Mitchell's for his services, I can highly recommend them to anyone needing a caring professional team who will be there for you all the way."

"I had heard many people talk about experiences at funeral homes that included high pressure, inflated prices, etc. The experience we had a Mitchell was not like that at all. The staff there took what was an extremely difficult time for our family and made it a little bit easier. We would highly recommend their services."
