Our History


Eastern Shore Cremation and Funeral Service is a Division of Holloway Funeral Home, a family owned firm, entering its 5th generation, that has been continuously owned by the Holloway Family since 1883.  We stand by our reputation and will continue to provide exceptional service to our community with the values instilled by our forefathers and has been handed down to all of our professional funeral directors and professional caring staff.

Much has changed in recent years not only in the areas that we are privileged to serve, but in our profession.  The family business has been nurtured over the years, and our main location at 501 Snow Hill Road in Salisbury has seen many changes.  In recent years, we have added a location in Pocomoke City, a partner firm with Stewart Funeral Home by Holloway and Downey, and of course the opening of our newest location, Eastern Shore Cremation and Funeral Service in Berlin.  Also, our newly renovated Cremation Center in Salisbury which is home to our pet cremation center and for other funeral homes that use our services for cremations. In addition, our monument shop and our new laser shop give us the ability to be a full service provider.

Entering into our 5th generation of the Holloway Family, we have maintained a professional and caring commitment to the families we serve.  This commitment is our way of letting you know we are here for you.

Our first priority is to provide the very best courteous, compassionate and quality service to every family we serve.  Our intent and responsibility is to uphold the highest level of professionalism, character and integrity. Honesty in all transactions is our benchmark, and we welcome being fairly compared to other funeral homes.  We also believe in providing thoughtful and through opportunities for families and individuals to plan funerals in advance and consider various options without pressure or obligation.

Funerals are more than observations of passage of Life.  They are Celebrations of Life to which every person is entitled.  We also believe every family has the right to choose their own way of celebrating life.  Because of this we have become the local leaders in providing services that are unique, meaningful and healing.
