Why Choose Milam?


Before choosing a funeral home, ask “Is the funeral home independent, and locally owned and operated?” We are proud to be a family owned and operated funeral home. Established in 1926, we are third generation in the Family funeral service. It is very important to choose a funeral home and a funeral director you have faith in. The time surrounding the death of a loved one is difficult, and the most important responsibility of any funeral director should be to have empathy, and make this difficult time a little easier and less stressful.

Choosing a professional funeral director who handles every family and every request with compassion and understanding may be the most important decision a family has to make. Please read our comparison chart below for FUNERAL SERVICE PROFESSIONALS and DIRECT DISPOSERS.

(F.S. Chapter 497.601)

There can be many reasons why prices vary amongst providers. As a licensed funeral home, we can provide many things that the direct disposer cannot by law offer to you, such as announcements of memorial services in the newspaper, opportunities for family members to gather and say goodbye, as well as professionally conducting memorial services.

Per Florida Statutes, F.S.497.601(2):

Direct disposers or funeral directors functioning as direct disposers may not, in their capacity as direct disposers, sell, conduct, or arrange for burials, funeral services, memorial services, visitations, or viewings; hold themselves out to the public as funeral directors, or use any name, title, or advertisement that may tend to connote that they are funeral directors. These prohibitions shall apply regardless of the fact that such individuals may be licensed as funeral directors.
