What Makes Us Unique

As one of the few independently owned funeral homes in the area, Horan & McConaty is a one-of-a-kind funeral and cremation provider. We specialize in providing first-class service and compassionate care to Denver area families. With more than 120 years of experience, we offer state-of-the-art facilities, a kind, professional staff and unsurpassed attention to detail.

Here are just a few of the superior benefits and caregiver resources we offer families and caregivers:

FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED: Horan & McConaty is proud to remain independently owned in an area that is dominated by huge chains and multinational conglomerates. Our families have cared for Denver residents since 1890, and we offer the level of compassionate care only a family can provide. We are accountable to you and your family—not to stockholders and investors. We go above and beyond to earn the confidence of your family today and for generations to come.

PERSONALIZED SERVICES: Our caring professionals will listen, suggest, organize, and carry out ceremonies that are comforting and full of meaning. Every staff associate is expected and empowered to do anything it takes to serve your family well.

SUPERIOR STANDARDS: Colorado is the only state in the U.S. that does not license funeral directors, embalmers, or cremationists. Horan & McConaty voluntarily adheres to the highest funeral industry standards. Horan & McConaty is committed to excellence!

EXCEPTIONAL VALUE: We offer exceptional service, compassionate care and state-of-the-art facilities. Our fair prices represent the greatest value in the area. Feel free to contact us any time, and we’ll promptly answer all of your pricing questions.

PROFESSIONAL GRIEF SUPPORT: Our job is not finished once the funeral is over. We are the only firm in the Denver area to offer full-time grief support to those struggling with the loss of a loved one.

ON-SITE CREMATORY: Because we offer cremations at our very own crematory, your loved one will never leave the shelter of our expert care. You can take comfort knowing that our trained professionals will handle every step of the cremation process with dignity and respect.

STATE-OF-THE-ART FACILITIES: We offer 7 convenient locations throughout the Denver Metro area. Our beautiful facilities were designed to provide a sense of warmth, peace, serenity and comfort. We also offer elegant full-service reception centers that can accommodate virtually any type of event before or after the service.

A CENTURY OF EXPERTISE: The Horan and McConaty families have been serving Colorado residents since 1890. Over the decades, we have provided compassionate care and unparalleled service to more than 100,000 families.

STUNNING CREMATION GARDENS: Located adjacent to our Parker Road and County Line Road Holly facilities, Rocky Mountain Memorial Parks have been referred to as “an oasis of beauty and serenity, perfect for Coloradoans who prefer cremation.” The environment is reminiscent of our Rocky Mountains. Large areas are set aside for the cultivation of native flowering bushes, majestic trees, and flowers, including the largest collection of columbines in our state.

SERVICE GUARANTEE: We offer fair and reasonable pricing with a money-back guarantee. Because we consistently earn a 99% satisfaction rating from the families we serve, we are confident that we will meet and exceed every family’s expectations.

EXCEPTIONAL STAFF: We have carefully chosen each member of our staff to ensure that our families receive professional, compassionate care. Our highly trained, caring experts are here to guide you through every step of the arrangement process and support you during this painful and difficult time.

SERVING ALL FAITHS: We care for families of all faiths.

When it comes to cremation in Colorado, it’s important to know the facts. Of all the states in the U.S., Colorado has the least amount of regulation, licensing, and supervision of funeral directors, embalmers or cremationists. Many cremation providers use unknown “brokers” that transport the deceased to an off-site facility to conduct the cremation. However, at Horan & McConaty, we believe families are entitled to know how and where the cremation process is completed, and we handle all cremations at our own on-site crematory.

As compared to other cremation providers, we are unique in that our facility is secure and under our own control. It is immaculate and ready for the family’s inspection at any time. Our cremation equipment represents the newest and cleanest technology and our procedures are careful and thorough. We offer a special viewing room for those who wish to be present for the start of the cremation process and offer free pre-cremation identification to ensure peace of mind.
