What Sets Us Apart

Service and Experience

We understand that death is difficult and each situation is unique.  The families we serve are always our primary consideration.  The funeral directors at Trahan Funeral Chapel have extensive experience in facilitating meaningful ways for families to celebrate the memories of their loved ones and grieve their loss. While providing information, options, and guidance with the highest level of compassion, dignity, and respect, we provide respectful and affordable funeral, cremation, and memorial services in a comfortable environment.  In all that we do, we hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and practices, always striving to exceed the expectations of each family we serve. 



Welcoming All Cultures

The funeral directors and staff at Trahan Funeral Chapel have extensive experience serving families from many diverse cultural backgrounds. As funeral experts, we have the knowledge necessary to ensure that your family's services are carried out seamlessly and with the utmost respect.


Well-Appointed Facilities

Centrally located in Bay County, our funeral home is all on one floor with no steps to climb. It is completely handicapped-accessible without the need for an elevator or special equipment. Our chapels are intimate and personal and provide an inviting and comfortable atmosphere for families and visitors.



Honoring Veterans

Trahan Funeral Chapel understands the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. Our staff is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran's ceremony that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one. We complete all the necessary benefit forms and contact local and federal branches to provide military honors.


Preplanning Services

Whether you need to plan ahead or you have an immediate need, we're here to guide you through the funeral process. Our staff welcomes the opportunity to answer all of your questions, including costs, visitation, types of burials and cremations, and also nearby cemetery locations.

In 1987, we established the Trahan Prearrangement Center designed to provide Funeral Preplanning with our No-Payment and Prepayment options. Our Medicaid-Approved plans guarantee that your prepaid funeral arrangements are an exempt-asset. We are registered with the State of Michigan and Michigan Insurance Division to offer funeral insurance and funeral trusts to ensure that your funds are safe and secure. Under state law, we are audited annually. You can be assured that we take this responsibility seriously and know that trust is a tradition at Trahan.


Aftercare Services

Trahan Funeral Chapel offers a monthly grief support group to the community free of charge with a professional counselor. By understanding the grief process and interacting with others who have experienced the same feelings, one is better able to live life anew.


Monuments & Markers

Since 1974, Trahan Memorials has offered discounted services to design and manufacture personalized monuments and markers to remember those who have died in a permanent place.  A variety of granites as well as bronze memorials are available. We also can arrange for honorably discharged veterans to obtain a VA provided marker. We offer all sizes, designs, and prices from which to select.
