Celebrating Life.
Cherishing Memories.

Baker-Swan Funeral Home has a heritage of compassionate care for our communites in Allegany County dating to 1946. Our facility has always been a family owned business, honored to serve our local communities including Andover, Alfred, Scio and Wellsville.

Send Flowers

We highly recommend using our local florists instead of internet flowers. Because we are a rural region, flowers from internet services normally arrive in poor condition and frequently they arrive too late to be displayed for services; sometimes they do not arrive at all. Our community florists all provide timely delivery, multiple purchasing options, and excellent customer service. Each of these services offers fine craftsmanship in their products.


Get in Touch

While trends in funerals always come and go, we continue to provide ways to celebrate the life of your loved one and offer services to make a difficult time easier. Our commitment is to serve your family with respect, compassion, and excellence.
