Thank you for visiting Schepp Family Funeral Homes.

   For generations, we have provided “traditionally fine service & facilities within the means of all”.  This simple statement, through decades of service since 1850, has been our foundation:   provide personalized services with dignity and respect from comfortable and convenient facilities, at the best value and at a price that is the same or less than you will find elsewhere– guaranteed. 

  We designed this site to meet the general needs and requests we receive from the community. You can easily navigate the site to read current obituaries and leave a condolence message if you wish; see maps indicating our three convenient locations, receive detailed driving directions from anywhere in the country, and review a list of local florists to order flowers. There are even links to area restaurants, hotels, and churches.   For additional guidance, please give us a call and we would be pleased to assist you.

  For those who are interested, we are one of the few funeral homes in central New York who has published their federal and state required “General Price List” on their website enabling you to get a general idea of what a service of your design would cost, either at need, or pre-need. There is also an area displaying some of the caskets, urns, and vaults most commonly selected by the families we have served, also with the pricing. Remember, however, funerals and memorials are very important events in our lives and we believe they are best planned in person where we can listen to your requests and fully explain your options. Should you be interested in exploring our many options and versatile pricing guides further, please give us a call and we can send you more detailed information for your review or you can make an appointment for a personal consultation at your convenience.



With the arrival of large national funeral conglomerates new to Syracuse, huge amounts of money are now being spent in advertising, especially about the price of funerals. While we agree that price is a very important factor, what you receive for that price and who provides it is just as important, if not more so. We would suggest you ask yourself who would you be more comfortable with in arranging these very important services– a family home with roots in the community going back over a century and a half who has served generations of families in our hometown, or a conglomerate where decisions are made at a corporate headquarters in another state based solely on what can be provided for one predetermined price? After you view the price survey( click here to view survey),and see that the prices at our family owned funeral homes are quite similar to even the large discount conglomerates, is there even a question as to where you would be most comfortable? We are so confident that you will not be able to find all of the options and features of our offerings anywhere, let alone at our very affordable pricing, we guarantee to provide the service you want at a price that is the same or less than you will find elsewhere.  It is part of our unconditional satisfaction guarantee that our predecessors have always offered through the decades.

Funerals and memorials can only be done once, and they must be crafted carefully and with attention to detail. Please take a moment to consider the wide range of offerings we present to customize and personalize your service.

Again, thank you for visiting our site; we hope you find the information you’re looking for. If we can be of any further service or you desire to speak with us directly, please contact us at any one of the three facilities of your choice.
