Service Options

Since 1881, everyone associated with Parker Bros. Memorial and Cummings Funeral Homes has understood the value of courteous service and attention to detail. To maintain the high standards people expect from us, we are always looking for better ways to serve you. Through the years, we have seen how families' needs have changed in regard to funeral service options. As leaders in our profession, we have progressed along with you, to better meet your needs by offering more choices and continually improving our facilities.

Choice in Locations
Our funeral homes are located in the heart of the Capital District and are easy to locate. Parker Bros. Memorial and Cummings Funeral Home are just off Interstate 787 and only minutes away from Albany, Troy and Schenectady. Parker Bros. Memorial is a spacious facility with a choice of tastefully decorated visitation rooms and lounges. Ample parking and street level access make entry and exit convenient. Cummings Funeral Home, a one-time private residence, offers a comfortable home-like setting for the largest and most private of visitations and funeral services.  Bowen and Parker Bros. Funeral Home is located in Latham, New York- easily accessible from the Northway and providing support to families in the Latham, Loudonville, Watervliet and Troy areas.  Recently renovated, the facility at 97 Old Loudon Road continues to provide the wonderful tradition of fine service in a beautiful setting.

All of our facilities are completely accessible to those who are physically disabled.

Service Options

Every family we serve is unique. We listen carefully to your needs and wishes, so together we create a service of remembrance unique to you and your family. Sometimes it means a favorite musical selection,  a memory board with pictures, or a personal video tribute.  Whatever your wishes are, you can be assured the service will be meaningful and arranged exactly as you want.

Affordable Cost Options

We believe the families we serve should not feel reluctant to discuss different cost options. We offer a wide choice of services, each with dignity and personal attention no matter what the cost.

Cremation Options

Many families considering cremation do not realize the many services available. We offer memorial services or a full funeral with visitation, followed by cremation. We can also assist with arrangements for those families preferring immediate cremation with no ceremony.

Pre-Arrangement Options

More and more families are making funeral arrangements in advance. They find peace of mind knowing the details have been taken care of without burdening their children or other family members. We make pre-arrangements at no expense for those who simply want the information on file. However, many choose to pay in advance because it can save money. We endorse several pre-payment programs that are designed to simplify pre-payment through a guaranteed plan. We are always available to meet with families in the privacy of their home or at any of our funeral home locations to discuss options and answer your questions. For more information, we encourage you to visit our Pre-planning page.

We encourage you to contact us at any of our convenient locations should you have any questions about the services we can offer to you or your family.

Book of Memories™

Memorialization at its best, any family member or friend can take advantage of this free service by creating an account and a book to memorialize their loved one.


Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?

Expressions of Sympathy

It can be difficult to find the right words, so we have hand-picked a collection of sympathy and remembrance gifts that will be cherished.
