About Us

Personal Service, Peace of Mind, Pleasant Memories

We understand that life is different for everyone and each person's life is special. For this reason, our family is committed to help you through special memorials and through helping family and friends celebrate special moments at Metropolitan Funeral Service.

Metropolitan Funeral Service was established in 1966 and has remained family owned and operated to preserve the quality and unique nature of our services. I, Kenneth Alexander, am the second generation to uphold the family tradition to provide comfort and support during the loss of a loved one through Metropolitan Funeral Service.

We understand the despair and grief of loss, which is why we provide a unique one-stop funeral service that offers total commitment to you, true family values, pre-planning, and so much more.

Security & Responsibility

At Metropolitan Funeral Service we understand how important it is during your time of loss to feel secure that your wishes are followed. We take on the responsibility of fulfilling your wishes or your family members pre-planned wishes to the fullest extent and will exceed your expectations. Metropolitan Funeral Service will relieve you of the details of ensuring your flowers, headstone, urns, memorial reception, or any other memorial events are handled properly.

Your security in knowing that your arrangements will be fulfilled is definitely a huge responsibility that we do not take for granted. More and more people are discovering the thoughtfulness and practicality of planning their funerals in advance. At Metropolitan Funeral Service we want to make sure you feel secure with your plans, whether a family member has pre-planned their service or you are planning a service.

Trust & Understanding

Metropolitan Funeral Service offers the confidence in knowing your wishes will be followed in a beautiful homelike facility that serves all families. We understand that you are facing difficult decisions during a time of loss. For this reason, we offer a one-stop funeral service for you. Cremation, flower arrangements, obituaries, after care support, music and more is offered to you. You have numerous choices with us and can trust us to handle your services for you.

Our belief is that the funeral helps provide a climate for mourning and the expression of grief, allows the sorrows of one to become the sorrows of many, is a vehicle for the community to pay its respects and is a celebration of a life that has been lived.

We provide the confidence in knowing that your wishes will be followed, the trust that we will serve you responsibly and the understanding that this is a time for you to share your sorrows and celebrate life. With our one-stop service you are relieved of many of the details and can trust us to make sure everything is taken care of in the quality you deserve.
