Our doors are open

Sparrow is a full service contemporary funeral home with offerings ranging from the traditional to the unique. Located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Sparrow is a light-filled space, consisting of two ‘celebration rooms’, a street facing retail store, and a staff that is compassionate, thoughtful and thorough.

With an emphasis on meaningful remembrance and true celebration, at Sparrow our goal is to help you plan and execute a significant experience at the end of life and after death, for yourself or your loved one, while still taking care of the traditional services of a funeral home from death certificates to burial.

Whether you are planning a traditional memorial service or a memorial a year after the death of a loved one, have a terminal illness and want an ‘Exit Party’ so you can attend your own funeral, seek a Death Doula to help guide your family through the process of death, or want a dance party celebration, Sparrow's doors are open and we are here to support you through the entire dying and grieving process.

Sparrow is available 24/7 365 days/year to help with any and all of your needs.
