to Warren McElwain Mortuary & Cremation Services

It is our sincere desire that you feel comfortable visiting our site

We’ve made it easy for you to learn more about the services that we provide, and get to know more about us.

Since 1904 Warren-McElwain Mortuary has been locally owned and operated. We are known for providing the best in funeral services to all families.

Warren-McElwain provides a full range of services including burial, cremation, in our own crematory, entombment or body donation.

We offer a complete line of granite, and bronze markers and arrange the installation in any cemetery. Complete pre-planning in advance of immediate need is also available.

The most important thing to us is staying current with funeral consumers and providing them high quality services at a reasonable price. We are committed to that.

For all these years, we have remained independent and family owned. This has remained true during a time of national and state consolidations, mergers and corporate ownership of funeral homes, mortuaries, and cemeteries, unprecedented in our history.


Thank you so much for helping our family through a difficult time. Your kindness and compassion didn’t go un-noticed.
