All too often, families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly don’t want you to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process.

n the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be ‘easier’ to just take care of things as simply, and as quickly, as possible. But easier, especially in this circumstance, isn’t always better. It is important to set the stage for the future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.

Our motto has always been "Helping Families Heal."  Through this commitment to our community, we provide all families we assist an eight chapter leather organizer to assist in the questions that follow services. These include Social Security, the transfer of assets, death certificates and much more.  In addition, we provide you a personal concierge to assist in navigating through the days, weeks and months to come.  We stand committed to assisting you through every step of the process both prior, during and well after a death occurs. 

Below you will find Funeral and Burial Services available through our funeral home.  All options provide an all-inclusive funeral and burial pricing method to eliminate confusion and "add-on's" as you design the one of a kind event to honor a life lived. 

Funeral Services

Traditional Funeral Services

Traditional funeral ceremonies serve to provide comfort in tradition, often involving one's religious customs. Praying for the deceased and their survivors can offer necessary healing throughout the grief processes. Ceremonies such as these can be performed at a location of your choosing or our facilities.  We work closely with all local religious affiliations and provide the necessary assistance to carry out the religious customs of choice. 

Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation; whether you select a formal funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, the need for acknowledgment of the loss with family and friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one.

We offer families a beautiful setting in which to come together to honor your loved one. But, you may certainly choose to celebrate their life in a more unique setting. No matter where you decide to gather together, such a service will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.

Commonly selected options are listed below.

Visitation or viewing, public or private, can be held before the funeral service. This can be the day before services, an evening before services, or immediately prior to the funeral.  Following the funeral service two options are available:

     A. Cremation process followed by permanent placement of the urn. 

     B. Casketed burial immediately following in a cemetery.

Private Identification of the deceased can be performed at our funeral home for fewer than ten immediate family members shortly after passing occurs. Cremation is scheduled at our privately owned crematory and cremated remains placed into an urn of choice.  We encourage you to select a determined amount of time to host a memorial gathering before holding a memorial service. Permanent memorialization, in the ground or a columbarium niche, of the urn can occur after cremation services have concluded.

What local families are saying about us

Green Funerals & Burials

Green Funerals & Burials

Many people are searching for more natural solutions to end-of-life care, and at Fellows, Helfenbein, and Newnam, we are proud to offer those families the choice of green burial.

Learn more about our Green Funeral & Burial services and prices by downloading our educational Services and Pricing guide.

A green burial ensures the burial site remains as natural as possible in all respects. Interment of the body can be done in a bio-degradable casket or burial shroud. Traditional embalming chemicals, caskets, and outer burial containers are avoided entirely in natural burial. The simplicity of a green burial is in tune with nature and need not be expensive.

Our family of funeral homes are the only funeral homes in Maryland to offer an all inclusive style to true natural burial.  We offer this at two of our privately owned cemeteries: Bestgate Memorial Park - Annapolis, MD  and Woodlawn Memorial Park - Easton, MD

If green burial is in keeping with your personal values, please contact us to assist you in making this a reality for you or for a loved one. Please Contact Us to speak with a funeral professional about your decision to “go green.” We also invite you to visit the Maryland Green Burial website to learn more.

We’re here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together before your loved one's interment in the cemetery of your choice.
