Family: The Heart of Everything We Do

The history of Farenga Family of Funeral Homes & Cremation Service goes back nearly 150 years. As the preferred funeral provider in Astoria and Queens, we have been committed to putting family first since opening our doors in 1876. We offer our neighbors the most personal end-of-life services no matter the funeral, cremation, or burial options they choose.

As we like to say here at Farenga, family is at the heart of everything we do.

We answer to families first.
Many funeral homes in the area are owned by corporations and answer to faraway CEOs. Being a family-owned and -operated firm lets us answer only to you. There’s no red tape when working to meet your family’s needs and wishes. Our funeral experts will spend focused time listening to your family and assessing your needs and preferences. We invite families in our community to schedule a time to stop by our funeral home in person to see the “Farenga Difference” in action.

We are guided by faith and tradition.
Our legacy of compassionate, high-quality care affects everything we do. We are one of the only firms in Greater Queens to emphasize cultural traditions and family values across all our services. Whether you choose traditional burial or cremation, you’ll receive the same support from our staff and be treated like a member of our own family.

Your family’s comfort is our top priority.
Choosing a funeral home is an important decision, whether it’s a case of immediate need for a loved one who has died or preplanning your own service. We want every family to know that when they choose us, they’ll be treated with compassion and respect throughout the entire planning process. You’ll also have our continued support during the weeks and months following the funeral via our grief recovery resources.


At Farenga, we know the importance of finding a funeral home with values that reflect those of your family. Your loved one deserves the best care, and our hard-working staff is here to ensure they receive it. Contact us to find out more about what makes Farenga stand apart from the rest.
