Rooted Deep In

family

The Newcomer family entered funeral service in 1893, with the belief that every family deserves the best service at a fair price. Over a century later, this belief continues to guide our family and the leadership of Newcomer.

Whether you are just starting out or have years of experience, if you have a passion for caring for people in their time of need, we are the right fit for you. Our family-owned company is big enough to provide our associates with the support they deserve, but small enough to keep the needs of families and associates first.

We are very proud to be privately-owned and known as one of the most progressive, growth-oriented funeral service providers in the country. We do this by buying and building funeral homes throughout the country, and are always looking for new opportunities.

Hear from our team

“I used to be a Funeral Director at a small, family-owned funeral home. It was a very nice place, but as the youngest/newest director, I found myself constantly on call. Working at Newcomer has made my job fun again. At work I am part of a family atmosphere that runs like a well-oiled machine to manage all the details involved in a caring, traditional funeral service. I also love the fact that when I am home with my husband and cats, I have the time to enjoy them. ”
