Soller-Baker Difference

Planning a funeral is difficult; we’re here to make it easier. We’ve been serving Lafayette families since 1865, and our unmatched experience ensures we will meet your needs, wishes, and budget.

When comparing funeral homes, you might assume all funeral homes and crematories offer the same services, value, and care. That could not be further from the truth. Here are three of the ideals that set Soller-Baker apart from the rest:

1. We’re a family-owned funeral home.

We treat all of our staff and neighbors like family –  but our family-owned mentality extends well beyond our staffing. At Soller-Baker, we pride ourselves in giving back to our community by supporting our schools, 4-H, and other local organizations. We are committed to using our own embalmers, ensuring your loved one never leaves our care. Additionally, we make it a practice not to use third-party pickup companies. If we do use a third-party company due to unusually high volume, a Soller-Baker staff member will be present. We hope this gives you confidence that your loved one will always be cared for with  respect and treated with dignity.

2. We save you money.

At Soller-Baker, we keep our services in-house. We never take short cuts such as outsourcing life insurance filings or marking up third-party sales like flowers or newspaper notices. Our in-house life insurance processing ensures that a third party will not take 3% of the payout from your policy, as is a practice at other funeral homes. This is just one of the many ways Soller-Baker Funeral Homes and Crematory works to save you money.

3. We provide value.

At Soller-Baker Funeral Homes and Crematory, we give every family the same high level of service, regardless of their budget. Our value packages grant you the same access to chapels, vehicles, and staff services such as Cremation with Confidence™, in-house embalming, and our in-house life insurance filing. We believe every family deserves quality and peace of mind when it comes to funeral planning. That is our value promise to you.

From our staff to our facilities to our funeral transportation, you will see the Soller-Baker difference as soon as you walk through our doors.
