Welcome to John M. Oakey & Son - Salem's only locally owned and operated funeral home.
Since 1866, John M. Oakey & Son has provided caring service to Salem and Roanoke Valley families. We are proud to be an independent, family-owned firm and that our name is one that so many have come to trust over the years. Don't make the mistake of thinking all funeral homes are the same. We pride ourselves on providing caring, personal attention. It's the kind of attention reserved for friends and neighbors. We are Salem’s only locally owned funeral home.
We want to thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will find our site helpful in your search for information on funerals, preplanning, and grief support. You will also find all of our costs for funerals as well as costs and pictures of merchandise. It is our purpose to provide adequate information if you are considering making plans in advance of need or if you have experienced the death of someone you love. Please visit our online obituaries where you can view the arrangements and obituary of your loved one. Also, please visit our online Memorial Guestbook. If you are unable to attend in person, the guestbook gives everyone an opportunity to sign the guest register and to share your sympathies, condolences, and fondest memories with the family of the deceased. All private condolences and replies will be printed out and given to the family. Our guestbook is linked and shared with the same guestbook found on the Roanoke Times website.
