Salyer Funeral Home on Chincoteague Island has been serving the community and surrounding areas for over 70 years. Started in 1949 by William (Bill) and Leone Salyer, it is now a third generation funeral home owned and operated by their granddaughter, Amanda (Mandy) Betts and her husband, Rick.

Offering traditional and cremation services, pre-planning, veteran services, and pet cremations all in a comforting atmosphere that the Salyer family and Chincoteague Island are known for. When a loved one passes away, it is so important to feel safe and secure knowing that the preparation will be handled by a dedicated, professional, licensed, and trained staff to help navigate you through the process of making sure your loved one is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

Salyer Funeral Home strives to provide services that exceed your expectations while also meeting your vast range of needs. From the most basic service to the most complex, you and your loved one will be treated with sensitivity, empathy, and respect that was all started and passed down from generation to generation. 

If you find that you need our services, please call us to set up a time to meet at our funeral home or we can meet at any setting that is more convenient for you and your family. In addition to providing our professional services, we also have access to several grief counselors and support groups to help you along in this journey.

We also provide video tributes for your loved one, create customized online memorials, and offer references for floral tributes and daily support emails, if desired.

If you are contemplating pre-planning your service, Mandy and her staff can guide you through the process to make this journey easier on your loved ones. With pre-planned, pre-paid services, you will have lifted the burden off of your loved ones and also will benefit from the savings by doing so. Please call and set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning your services.
