More About Newman Funeral Homes

At Newman Funeral Homes, we offer a complete choice of services from traditional funerals to direct cremation.

A traditional funeral service includes embalming, a one or two day viewing, a funeral service, either at our facility or in a church, procession to the cemetery, graveside service and burial.

A traditional cremation service involves embalming, a one or two day viewing, funeral service and cremation of the body and container with a graveside service at a later date if requested.

The graveside service includes embalming, viewing if requested and a service at the place of burial.

Direct cremation involves holding the body the necessary period of time as required by law, transfer to the crematory and a container for the body. It does not include a memorial service, however, the services are often desired.

We have provided large areas for viewings and funerals. Families are encouraged to make the services as personal as they wish by displaying pictures, mementos and meaningful items.

Arrangements are made at our Oakland, Grantsville and Salisbury locations. Each facility has a new concept of casket selection. Quarter and Eighth cut casket sections are offered to view in place of a display of full size caskets, this allows for a greater selection of caskets in a much friendlier environment.

The Oakland, Grantsville and Salisbury locations have designated children’s areas and coffee lounges, and all facilities offer coffee. We extend an invitation to visit us anytime and see our facilities.
