Traditional Services

McCrery & Harra Funeral Homes and Crematory has provided funerals in the Wilmington community for over 100 years. We are equipped to offer any type of service. If you do not want a church service, we offer two convenient, tastefully appointed, locations that accommodate any number of guests.

Service enhancements can be accomplished by a number of products we offer including:

  • Free online obituaries with online condolence and vigil wall features
  • We work closely with several celebrants who meet with the family to discuss eulogies
  • Laminated obituaries
  • Photo prayer cards
  • Service Brochures/Memorial folders


We are dedicated to providing the finest service to our families who choose cremation which is why McCrery & Harra is proud to say that we are the only funeral service provider in New Castle County licensed to provide the Cremation with Confidence™ Guarantee.

Our Cremation with Confidence™ Guarantee brochure outlines our 10-step cremation process that ensures your loved one’s cremation is handled according to only the highest professional standards. In addition, you can rest assured that our crematory is located in our facility. While many funeral homes utilize third party crematories, at McCrery & Harra Funeral Homes and Crematory, your loved one is always under the care of our licensed funeral directors, who are also certified crematory technicians, and personally supervise every detail of the cremation process.

Several choices should be considered when a family desires cremation; these choices determine the type of service it will be:

  • The gathering - where family and friends come together either at one of our locations, church or another setting.
  • Time of cremation - will cremation occur before or after the service?
  • Memorialization - what will the final disposition of the cremated remains be? Interment or entombment, placement in a memorial garden, scattering, permanent possession or a combination.

Celebrant Services

Many families choose a non-traditional, humanistic service. This is an alternative to a religious service and focuses on the life your loved one. A funeral celebrant will meet with the family to discuss eulogies, readings, music, poems, and other features that can be incorporated into the service to make it a meaningful celebration of life.

Many humanistic services incorporate items from our remembrance service selections.


Preparing For Death Is A Gift To The Living.

Pre-arranging your funeral is a considerate, compassionate gift to your loved ones. It relieves them from the burden of having to make many choices at an emotionally difficult time. While preplanning is a thoughtful gesture, it is also practical. Pre-planning enables you to:

  • Have peace of mind
  • Establish your personal wishes ahead of time
  • Free loved ones from making those decisions
  • Select easy payment options that lock in costs at today’s price

If you simply wish to make your choices known in advance and have them on file, we would be happy to help you with this at no charge. And if you choose to prepay your service through one of our guaranteed and insured financing plans, you protect your family further… from unexpected expenses. Contact Anne Rowan for further information on pre-planning and you can be confident your final wishes will be fulfilled.

Grief Counseling

As part of our service package, McCrery & Harra offers three complimentary grief counseling sessions with Dr. Rosemary Castelli.

Dr. Rosie Castelli lived in Wilmington, Delaware for over 20 years before moving to New York in 1993 to pursue a career in the SUNY higher education system. There she served as Vice President for Academic Affairs at SUNY Adirondack in Queensbury, NY. When she retired in 2008 she moved back to Delaware to enjoy her children and grandchildren. Upon retirement, Dr. Rosie retrained and became a certified grief counselor (American Institute of Health Care Professionals) and Certified funeral celebrant (Insight Institute). She also became certified as a Funeral Services Associate and Pastoral Thanatologist (dealing with death issues). She also began teaching online courses for the American Academy of Grief Counseling, a branch of the American Institute of Health Care Professionals. In 2015 she became a sister in the Anglican Dominican Order, a faith community in the Episcopal Church of the United States. As Sister Rosie (as she is now often called) she serves as prior of Albertus House, the northeast priory of the Order. Sr. Rosie’s biggest joy, however, is being with her son Chris and his family, especially her three grandchildren, and with her very spoiled senior Dachshund, Gabriella Marie. Families who have been served by McCrery and Harra may know Sr. Rosie as the author of “Fifty Two Weeks of Grief Support,” an online program for grieving families offered by the funeral home. She also wrote, “Now That The Funeral Is Over,” a grief workbook available on Amazon and at McCrery and Harra. Although retired, Sr. Rosie is always available to her friends at McCrery and Harra to offer grief support for those suffering the pain of grief.
