Every life is unique. Every funeral should be too. The team at Bounds Funeral Home in Salisbury, Maryland, works to add a personal touch to each memorial service we create. Tell us a story. We'll take it from there.

Our funeral home and caring team

Sitting Area at Bounds Funeral HomeBounds Funeral Home offers 8,000 square feet of space that includes comfortable arrangement rooms, a viewing room with a fireplace and a chapel that seats up to 200 guests with adjacent family and clergy rooms. 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.
