Just the Right Guidance

We're here with insight and experience as you decide what's best for your family.

Shaughnessey Banks Funeral Home is the oldest, family-owned funeral home in Fairfield, founded in 1950 by two brothers, Thomas and Jack Shaughnessey. For over seventy years, the staff of the funeral home has strived to provide the best guidance when a family loses the most important person in their life. The funeral home is now run by Pamala Shaughnessey Banks and her exemplary staff. 


A Beautiful Tribute

What special meaning did others draw from this person's life?

That's what a funeral service can express. It's why we assist in unexpected ways to:

  • Honor your loved one in a unique manner.
  • Accommodate all of your requests.
  • Produce a keepsake video tribute.
  • Assist with every small detail.

Learn why our clients recall the memory of their service, and how it comforts them long into the future.

Our aim: help you create a highly personalized service, as traditional or contemporary as you like.



A prearranged service eases the burden on family members.

You benefit as well by taking time to ensure that everything is exactly as you want it.

We offer a complimentary consultation to help you consider your options and provide planning materials to guide you through the process. Plus, our prefunding can even help you set aside funds in advance.

Learn why preplanning is the thoughtful gift of comfort you give to others.



"This was my first experience with handling the death of someone close to me. My family and I knew you would handle all of our concerns and worries with thoughtfulness and expertise. You helped me approach his funeral with dignity and grace. I will never forget your kindness!"
