Modern, compassionate funeral services

Chapel at Oaklawn CemeteryBaldwin-Fairchild Oaklawn Chapel is a contemporary Sanford funeral home that includes a large chapel with flexible seating and plenty of room for gathering with friends and family. Should you wish to host coffee and tea, wine and cheese, or even lunch or dinner, we will handle food and beverage catering to free up your personal time. We know that losing a loved one is hard and are here to guide you through planning a funeral or memorial every step of the way.

We offer everything from a wholly traditional church funeral and cemetery burial to a modern celebration of life with live music, catering and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one. Whatever your vision or your loved one's wishes, we go the extra mile to make it happen.

Cremation arrangements

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.

Oaklawn Cemetery

Cemetery grounds at Oaklawn CemeteryWith lush sweeping lawns, a variety of mature trees and shrubs, paved drives and nature-inspired water features, Oaklawn Cemetery is an especially picturesque property. There is even a pavilion for small outdoor services.

Our cemetery offers numerous burial options, including in-ground interment with flat markers or upright monuments, private or public mausoleum entombment or a memorial choice specific to cremation. We have selections ranging in price and style to accommodate all needs.


Baldwin-Fairchild Cemeteries and Funeral Homes opened in 1972, when Richard O. Baldwin Jr. founded the first Baldwin Funeral Home in the Goldenrod area of Orlando. In 1974, he expanded to Altamonte Springs, and in 1978 he added All Faiths Memorial Park in Casselberry.

In 1980, Richard acquired 3 more funeral homes in the Orlando area: Fairchild Funeral Home and Crematory located on Lake Ivanhoe; Bray Funeral Home in Apopka; and Hoequist Funeral Home in Winter Garden. He then renamed all 5 of his funeral homes to Baldwin-Fairchild.

Our founding principle is to serve all families regardless of faith or circumstance, providing unwavering respect and dignity throughout the entire funeral process. Today, Baldwin-Fairchild has 10 chapel locations and 4 cemeteries serving all of the Greater Orlando area.

"The attention I received was very Professional. The care Connie showed me, helped me navigate the experience with ease. Even though, it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. I was allowed to take my time, never pressured, never forced to make a decision, unless I was sure of what I wanted. Best experience I could have asked for, in such a heartbreaking moment. Thank you isn't enough but, Thank You with my whole heart."

"I was very pleased with the professionalism, very knowledgeable, caring and making you feel like one of the family. Offered advice when asked and did not pressure you in any way. The themed service was over the top and gave insight to the deceased and a more relaxed atmosphere."

"Thad and Julie W. are the go to people to sit with discuss who your loved one was and making choices regarding cremation vs burial, flowers, coffin, urn, memorabilia, repass, etc. Trust me when I say they listen to everything you say. They make themselves available to answer your questions at anytime throughout this process. Julie B and Diana are amazing at decorating for the repass. Every detail about my father was captured and represented in the room. My kids, family and friends are still talking about it. They all say they have never seen or experience anything like this before. We all agree that you every detail of my father was represented. Bobby, Kirk and Jack are patient and understanding with allowing you to say that final goodbye and not rush you out the facility. My sons got caught in bad weather and they gave us extra time so they could say goodbye. Noel is great at greeting you and making sure your messages are routed to the correct person and a callback is received in a timely manner. Dignity at Baldwin-Fairchild Sanford, FL is the place to go in your time of loss. My mother has already pre-paid and I am working with Julie W to make my arrangements for my passing so my children don't have to worry about anything when I pass. Definitely recommend Dignity @ Baldwin Fairchild located in Sanford, FL"
