Zaumetzer Funeral Home in Au Sable Forks, New York has been offering professional and caring service to the community since 1905

The original building, seen here, was first built as a boarding house. It remained in operation until 1905 when it was converted into a funeral home by Bromley Sprague and named Bromley & Sons Funeral Home.

In 1956 it was taken over by Charlie & Dubby Zaumetzer and renamed Zaumetzer-Sprague Funeral Home. Charlie & Dubby owned the firm for 49 years and during that time they built an amazing reputation.  On the back of the original building was a room that Charlie liked to spend time.  It was there that guests and families would go to take a break from the funeral services if needed.  Dubby would make her world-famous brownies, and kids from all over would go to get them from her on Halloween.

What Families Are Saying About Us

Zaumetzers helped me to carry out my Dad's wishes just the way he wanted. They treated me with respect, care and compassion. They went the extra mile for me without hesitation. They made a very difficult task a little bit easier and I am for that I will always be grateful. I recommend Zaumetzers Funeral Home without reservation.

Jared is a sincere and kind man. I wasn't quick enough to make it to be with Mom in her passing, and with covid and Mom's wishes, I wasn't sure that I would ever see her again. But within hours of receiving her, Jared was able to pull off the impossible and I got to see Momma one last time. Even though it wasn't long, it was enough time for final goodbyes. Thank You Jared, I appreciate the effort that you made on my behalf.
