About Us

A Long-Stand Tradition of Exceptional Cremation and Funeral Arrangements.

South Brevard Funeral Home opened its doors in 1971 when George W. Ammen, Jr., a Florida funeral director for nearly 60 years, established the business. In 1973, George’s son, Michael W. Ammen, joined his father. George and Michael then opened East Coast Cremation in 1981, followed by the Palm Bay Funeral Home in 1984 and installed Space Coast Crematory in 1994.

In 2011 we changed our name to show our family commitment and now operate as – Ammen Family Cremation and Funeral Care.

Over the years, we have grown into the leading independent provider of cremation and funeral services in Brevard County. In a time when large, impersonal corporations own many local funeral homes and crematories, we are proud to say that all of our locations remain locally owned and operated.

Serving with respect and dignity

We at Ammen Family Cremation & Funeral Care are firmly dedicated to a respectable mission: To care for the deceased with respect and dignity and the living with compassion and understanding-and to accomplish this goal with the highest professional ethics. Our unfailing effort to fulfill this mission keeps our entire staff focused on providing superior, considerate service.

Plus, we realize that every family faces their own unique situation when a loved one passes. That’s why we offer a variety of first-rate services and work with each family to customize services to fit their distinctive needs. We are dedicated to designing memorable, fitting tributes that truly reflect the lives of those who have passed.

Caring for Brevard families since 1971

Because we’ve been working in Brevard County since 1971, we feel that we are especially qualified to serve this community. We strive to provide the most personal, first-class service to each and every one of our special clients. We’re here because of you, and we’re here for you.
