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.

careers

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

“Like most funeral directors, I work very hard during the workday, but I’m always home for dinner with my family. Family time is extremely important to me, and my employer understands that. They value me as an employee and want me to be successful and happy.”

Adam Byers

Funeral Director in Charge
Columbus, OH

“I feel very valued and respected as an employee. I'm young, and a lot of young directors don't feel that way and their superiors don't make them feel that way. When I have an opinion or a suggestion, I actually feel like I'm listened to.”

Alexys Gribble

Funeral Director
Cincinnati, OH

“I think I am lucky to get to come to a job where they care about their employees.”

Julie Garrison

Senior Accounting Services Representative
Topeka, KS

“I chose Newcomer because I liked the diversity, how many families they serve, all different types of families they serve. There are directors here all from different walks of life, varying levels of experience, from other states. It has been a great opportunity for me to learn different skills and techniques to help families.”

Jamie Greenfield

Funeral Director
Albany, NY

“I chose to work at Newcomer because for me, it offered the autonomy that I had felt when I worked at other smaller firms, but then also had resources of the larger places I've worked with. Having both of those things together at one place was something that drew me to Newcomer.”

Alex Mock

Area Manager
St. Louis, MO

“When something comes up, when something needs to change or something needs to be addressed, there's always someone, whether it's IT, Human Resources, Accounting, any time that there's a concern, there's always a direction where you can go where someone's going to help you.”

Nick Kimmey

Funeral Director in Charge
Albany, NY

“I actually get to do something incredibly rewarding. I have more time with my family at home and have begun to spend a little more time with families who have lost a loved one. I feel at home and it is hospitality in a very rare, genuine form.”

Barbara Capriotti

Assistant Manager
Syracuse, NY

“Working for a family-owned company is like no other, and the Newcomers truly care about the families that we serve, and you can see that in every decision that they make for the company. They allow us to do our jobs, they trust us to do our jobs and to make the right decision for families, and they treat us really well and care about our wellbeing.”

Julie Gould

Cemetery Manager
Topeka, KS

“Joining Newcomer straight out of college as an apprentice allowed me to return home to Akron. I am now the Managing Funeral Director and am truly impressed by the dedication our associates show each and every family we serve on a daily basis. Our team goes above and beyond to provide high-quality service at an affordable price. There’s no place I’d rather be.”

Robyn Deterling

Managing Funeral Director
Akron, OH

“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. ”

Jessica Olson

Funeral Director
Orlando, FL

“I think I am lucky to get to come to a job where they care about their employees.”

“I love assisting families. Nothing makes me more satisfied than when a family leaves the funeral home in better spirits than when they came.”

David Wilcox

Funeral Director

“I chose to work at Newcomer because for me, it offered the autonomy that I had felt when I worked at other smaller firms, but then also had resources of the larger places I've worked with. Having both of those things together at one place was something that drew me to Newcomer.”
