Home For Funerals



Welcome to the Carafa Family Funeral Home. Our family owned and operated funeral home will guide your family in creating a meaningful ceremony to honor the life and memory of a loved one. We commit ourselves to provide the highest level of service, dignity, tenderness and respect to all of the families we serve. During this difficult time, we strive to provide a selection of personalized services to meet your family’s needs and customs.

Our website is designed to introduce you to our funeral home, our staff and provide information about our available services during this difficult time. If you have any questions concerning the information you may find on this site, please do not hesitate to contact us anytime.

Also, we are very excited to announce our change in name. For almost 40 years the community has known us as the William R. Carafa & Son Funeral Home. In 2010, William Jr’s daughter, Amy, became a Type 3 licensed funeral director and embalmer. She will continue to carry on the family name and serve the families and friends that entrust us with their loved ones. In doing so, we thought it was a wise decision to change the funeral home name to one that reflects the dedication, the commitment, the loyalty and sacrifices of all the members of the Carafa family, who have helped make the business what it is today and moving forward in the future.
