History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

About Us

We are located on Millbrook Road between Capital Blvd. and Atlantic Avenue.  For your convenience, our staff members are available for consultations at our office location or the comfort of your home. We offer a Traditional Chapel for services or you may prefer for us to provide services at your church or graveside location. Our newly added Reception Center is equipped for large accommodations to receive family members and friends before or after a service.

Our Beginning

Our sister company of 40 years, Cremation Society of the Carolinas, was established in 1973 and has been assisting families in the Triangle area with quality Cremation Services.  During this time, it has also been our honor to assist families with their Burial Funeral Service needs, and in 2000, Capital Funeral Home was established to further our professional offerings to all families requesting Traditional Burial options in the Triangle area.
