About

As members of the Baldwin-Fairchild family of funeral homes and cemeteries, as well as the Dignity Memorial® network, Baldwin-Fairchild Oaklawn Chapel and Oaklawn Cemetery in Sanford provide the finest funeral ceremonies and cemetery services in the Greater Orlando area. We believe that people deserve flexibility of choice and a personalized experience. To that end, Baldwin-Fairchild Oaklawn Chapel and Oaklawn Cemetery provide flexible options for people of all backgrounds.

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.

History

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.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Everyone I encountered was very professional and filled with compassion. We brought in a ton of memory things and pictures. Everyone commented on how beautiful the design staff pulled everything together for the service. In these COVID times, there were a lot of people that preferred not to travel, so having the streaming service was a huge plus for our out of town family and friends. The food service was also very nice and delicious - the shrimp were a big hit! Thank you so much. Charlotte Smith-Wilkes"
