Who we are

No one likes to think about loss, but it is a part of every person’s life. It is a natural process, but it doesn’t mean it is an easy one. When you are grieving over the loss of a loved one, it can be especially hard to make funeral arrangements. Having a professional and caring funeral home to help you make the necessary arrangements is very important.

Fretthold Funeral Home is a premier full service funeral home. Our goal is to provide our families with the support and guidance they need throughout this difficult time. We provide 24 hour on-call services should you need this. We are always available to help in any way we can. If you are in need of preneed funeral services we are the right funeral for you. Our preneed funeral services include preplanning with the New York State funeral plan and Medicaid.

The Fretthold Funeral Home is committed to provide direction, encouragement, give hope and comfort to those in need at the time of loss of a loved one. We fully understand that our future rests upon the quality of service we provide our families, the compassion we extend and the promise to provide dignified funerals in a warm atmosphere of genuine love and concern.

For the past 14 years the Fretthold Funeral Home has secured over $250,000 in grants from the York Children’s Foundation of Houston, TX for needy children’s organizations throughout Western New York. James Fretthold (pictured on the right) presents a check for $2,000.00 to Kids Escaping Drugs. The York Children’s Foundation is a non profit corporation and is managed by the casket manufacturer, The York Group, Inc.

We are proud to be the exclusive giver of the Memory Tree in the Tonawandas. The MEMORY Tree: A symbol of Hope and a Living Tribute to your loved one.
