Founded in 1889, the O'Neill-Hayes Funeral Home has been family owned and operated for five generations. We are one of the oldest funeral homes in Rhode Island, and the oldest funeral home on the entire Aquidneck Island. Over the past 125 years, we have become a benchmark in Newport and in the surrounding communities for compassion and service in the funeral industry.

The death of a family member or close friend is a very difficult time in anyone's life. Our website provides resources for individuals to visit for seminars, workshops and articles that will help you understand the grief you are feeling when someone in your life has passed.
Many people plan for life events such as weddings and vacations well in advance, however, do not plan for something that is certain to happen, their funeral. While most people do not want to think about their own mortality, the time to pre-plan is now.
