Funeral Home
Salem, MA


Two families serving the Salem area since 1892.

The Full-Spychalski Funeral Home, originated in 1892 when Joseph Frederick Full and his son, George W. Full first opened the doors of the Full Memorial in downtown Salem. 
Fifty years later, in 1942, Louis J. Spychalski, Sr., opened the Spychalski Funeral Home near Moody Square on North Street.
In 1954, Frederick W. and Joseph E. Full, George's sons and the third generation of the family to operate the business, acquired the property that was the former residence and office of the late Dr. Hardy Phippen, a well known Salem physician. They moved the Full Memorial from its longtime location on Church Street to the Phippen property and current facility at 84 Washington Square East, overlooking Historic Salem Common. In 1957, Joe's son, David A. Full joined the staff and became the fourth generation to serve in the family business.
  In 1974, Robert Spychalski joined his father in the operation of the Spychalski Funeral Home, and in 1982, the Full and Spychalski families merged the two businesses into one, the Full-Spychalski Funeral Home.
Today the firm is still family owned and operated by Robert G. Spychalski, with the same attention to detail as his father and the four generations of the Full family before him.
Bob's goal is to offer a wide range of options in traditional burial and cremation services. He and his staff make every effort to see that each funeral service is meaningful for the family and friends of the deceased.
