Since 1875, the Billow family has been serving the residents of Akron with unmatched precision and experience. As the first funeral home in Akron, Billow set the standard for how funeral service should be done. In 1964, we moved from our location in downtown Akron to our current location in Fairlawn, which is conveniently adjacent to many quality hotels, restaurants, parks and businesses. Between this and our close proximity to I-77, families will find that our funeral home is simple to find and just minutes away from anything you might need.
Families will also find that our facilities are both the largest and most well-appointed among the funeral homes in Akron, perfectly suited to serve funeral or memorial services of any size. And with our own on-site crematory, we are the only funeral home in Akron that can truly guarantee your loved one will never leave our expert care throughout the cremation process. Whether burial or cremation is chosen, our exceptional staff will be happy to work with your family to plan the perfect services for your needs.
We do our best to serve Fairlawn and surrounding communities both inside and outside the funeral home. The Billow family has taken great pleasure in being part of Akron’s network of institutions including the Rotary Club, the Board of Akron Round Table, the Greater Akron and Fairlawn Chambers of Commerce, St. Paul’s Episcopal Endowment Foundation and many more. We take great pride in being an integral part of such an iconic city, and we thank families for trusting us with their loved ones. Our funeral home is open to all families looking for the best funeral and cremation services in Akron.
We are pleased to share with our community our newly renovated Fairlawn Chapel. Renovations began in May of 2022 and concluded in Fall of 2022, which included a complete interior remodel, all new furnishings, and the addition of a tranquil decorative stone water feature in the main foyer.
For the last 147 years, Billow’s has taken immense pride in offering the highest level of service to the community. Updates were made from floor to ceiling throughout the funeral home, modernizing every element, adding all new furnishings and décor, and bringing an atmosphere of brightness, elegance, and comfort. Please feel free to take the time to tour our Fairlawn chapel to see the new renovations.
You are welcome to call us any time of the day, any day of the week, for immediate assistance. Or, visit our funeral home in person at your convenience.
