History

For nearly a century, the New Hyde Park Funeral Home has been providing caring support for families in their times of need. Our spacious and serene home has been a haven to many, and over the years, we've built a reputation for the quality of our services and the distinguished manner in which our funerals are conducted.

1956:  Joseph R. Smolenski, Sr. opens New Hyde Park Funeral Home in February of 1956. At the time, Floral Park and New Hyde Park had large Polish populations. The Smolenski name was well known, so the ethnic draw was a natural. Business started out well and picked up speed as New Hyde Park grew. In fact, at times it was necessary to take over the family home, which was attached, to allow for viewing.
