Where To Start

When planning a service, you have many options available to you and we will do all that we can to provide a beautiful and respectful ceremony. No matter your choice, we can offer you a space to join with family and friends in grief, comfort and love. And above all, we will do our utmost to honor your loved one. We will be happy to go over all your options and answer any questions that you may have.  

Funeral Services

A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique. Many cultures and religions have special funeral traditions and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. This is a moment for you and your family and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.

Memorial Services

Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.

Arranging burial and funeral services is seldom simple, but at Wells Funeral Homes, we aim to assist your family as you make important decisions under challenging circumstances. That’s why we offer a range of personalized burial services designed to honor the lives of the dearly departed.

Compassionate Service and Versatile Options

Wells Funeral Homes has proudly served residents of Canton and Waynesville with personalized burial services since 1888.

To cater to the unique needs of the region’s residents, we offer the following options:

  • Visitation: Commonly known as the “wake” or “calling hours,” visitation offers an opportunity for friends and family of the deceased to say goodbye.
  • Funeral/Memorial Services: Typically held at a funeral home or within a church, these services include ceremonies that celebrate the life of the dearly departed.
  • Graveside/Chapel/Committal Services: These ceremonies take place at the cemetery before the burial occurs.
  • Immediate Burial: This process involves burial without a funeral, visitation, or any other gathering.

Uncertain whether burial and cremation services suit your circumstances? Reach out to Wells Funeral Homes, and we’ll provide the compassionate assistance you deserve.

At Wells Funeral Homes, we complement our selection of funeral services with a range of cremation options designed to suit the varying needs of the Waynesville and Canton area.

Our Cremation Services

We understand that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to cremation, and that’s why we provide several cremation options. Much like traditional burial options, our cremation services can be coordinated with funeral ceremonies and any related events. If you’re uncertain which burial and cremation services suit your circumstances, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for caring, compassionate assistance.

Cremation services available through Wells Funeral Homes include:

  • Interment: This process involves cremation followed by burial or entombment of your loved one’s remains.
  • Graveside Services: Similar to those services that occur alongside a ground burial, these services involve a ceremony that celebrates the life of the dearly departed prior to burial of the cremated remains.
  • Scattering: This post-cremation option lets you honor the wishes of the deceased by dispersing their remains in a meaningful location.
  • Multiple Urns: Cremated remains can be placed in multiple urns, which can afford a welcome measure of comfort to those family members who would otherwise be separated by distance.
