Facilities

We pride ourselves on the functionality and appearance of our Wilmington facility. We are constantly updating and improving our premises and equipment to keep our facility within the highest of professional standards.

Whether it is our Chapel, Visitation Rooms, Coffee Lounge or Reception Facilities, the flexibility of our layout allows us to accommodate a broad range of services. Our facilities can support everything from very large assemblies to the smallest of quaint gatherings.

Simply choose from the menu on the left to learn more about the individual features of our facilities, and the reason why Evan W. Smith Funeral Services is known as a leader in our profession.

The funeral is an important opportunity to pay tribute to someone you loved. It is a time for relatives and friends to gather tell stories, to share memories, to acknowledge your loss and support one another. We are open-minded in providing a more personal arrangement to suit your needs and reflect the life of your loved one.

We've worked hard to make the surroundings as comforting as possible for you during this difficult time.

Visitation Rooms
Are you curious about the differences between a viewing, a visitation and a wake? It's not just about knowing proper definitions: if you're planning a funeral for a loved one and need to choose between the three, you'll need to understand their subtle differences.
Our Chapel
Although our chapel is not intended to compete against the reverence and respect of the church, it has been tastefully designed as an option for those who do not wish a formal church setting.
Reception Lounge
Our reception lounge can provide a convenient setting for a time of fellowship and light refreshments after the funeral service.
