Our funeral home and caring team

Our dual-licensed funeral directors serve families from Laurel, Delaware to Princess Anne, Maryland and everywhere in between. Our central location in Salisbury is convenient to Mardela Springs, Pittsville and Willards.

Personalized funerals and memorials

Lifelong leisure pursuits, passion for a vocation or an affinity for a particular part of pop culture can provide the perfect inspiration for a custom-tailored memorial service. Whether you prefer a traditional religious ceremony, a contemporary celebration of life, military funeral with honors or a simple cremation with remains scattered in a personally meaningful place, we have a range of options to suit personal preferences and family traditions. Inspire our team of talented funeral directors with the elements that defined a personality, and we’ll work to create a fitting final farewell.

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.

"Bounds Funeral Home explained the entire process to me. I never felt under pressure and they answered all of my questions, and discussed different options if necessary. They were very patient and understanding."

"In our particular situation, there was a need to arrange for international, cross-cultural coordination of services. The Team at Bounds Funeral Home handled every step of the process. How would people in our family's position have been able to anticipate all the details related to transporting a loved one across the planet if it were not for the people at Bounds? There aren't enough words to speak to how much the team at Bounds Funeral Home created a sense of ease and trust and relief during a very difficult time within the context of a global pandemic."

"We expected my fathers death so we had discussed his arrangements prior to his passing. Bounds allowed us to take care of all the arrangements by phone and we provided the obituary & photo via email. It was a seamless transaction and allowed us to grieve at home privately. This was a graveside only service so our only other staff encounter was to load & unload my fathers casket & attendance of the service itself. The pall bearers were given clear instructions for loading & unloading so that went seamlessly. As for the graveside, the Bounds staff was closely to attend to our every need and advise us of protocol- something one thinks they know but at a time like this may forget or overlook. Geri Anne, Aspen & Ernie couldn't have done anything more for us and this family will be forever grateful for their guidance through a most difficult time in our lives."
