Proudly Serving Southwest Nova Scotia since 1860
Sweeny's Funeral Home and Crematorium is located in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and was founded in 1860. This is the oldest business operating under the same name as when it began in Yarmouth.
The present building has a few additions since Jacob Sweeny owned the business, but still has part of the original Sweeny house in use. In 2011 we added a new state of the art crematorium in order to better serve the needs of the people of Southwest Nova Scotia.We offer traditional or alternative services for any religious denomination, ethnic culture, or language group. Talk to our friendly and professional staff about pre-arranged funerals, onsite cremation, and graveside and memorials services.
Sweeny’s funeral home provides high quality Nova Scotian made monuments and headstones as well as funeral webcasting and memorial tributes.Ask about grief counselling and funeral aftercare.  Were available 24 hours a day by calling 742-3245

We provide our families with an open door policy. Please feel free to contact us 24 hours a day.

I had the unfortunate experience of having my father pass away suddenly and unexpectedly. For the first time in my life, I was in a position of having to make funeral and end of life arrangements. Charles MacIsaac thoughtfully helped facilitate all the details including; transporting my father from another province, funeral and interment planning, bulletins and monument design, as well as obituaries. I could not have been happier with the support that Sweeny's Funeral Home provided to me as well
