Welcome

At the GILPATRIC-VANVLIET FUNERAL HOME, we consider it an honor and the highest form of trust to answer the call to serve you and your family.  One call to 845 338-1200 will insure that all details are promptly addressed in the most compassionate and professional manner.

For over 140 years, our funeral home has served families in all communities including Kingston, Port Ewen, Ulster Park, Esopus, Hurley, and Lake Katrine. We pledge to compassionately serve your family with the highest degree of professionalism.

Our Cape Cod style funeral home is located 3 just minutes south of Kingston, NY near the majestic Hudson River and offers a spacious chapel designed to provide a warm, comforting "home-like" atmosphere for gathering and remembering a life lived and loved.

Do you consider yourself spiritual but not religious?
In addition to religious services, we offer an "on staff" Certified Funeral Celebrant. A Funeral Celebrant serves by providing a funeral service, memorial service or tribute that is personalized and individualized to reflect the personality and life-style of the deceased after consultation with the family.  The Celebrant can also plan a moment for "family time" for the sharing of stories and memories.
 

Transfer Prearrangements:
Your funeral prearrangements are never "locked-in" another funeral home, they are always portable. Simply
contact us and our professional staff will facilitate the transfer process.
