At the Longwood Funeral Home, family-owned and family-operated means that we are accountable to the families we serve. We hold our standards above all else and not to a board of directors or group of financial investors who only look at the bottom line.  We don't operate from corporate offices out of state and your loved one, with whom you entrusted us to care for, rests in our facility, not in one across town.

We have constructed a state-of-the-art memorial home facility while offering the most on-site parking in Southern Chester County. Our large chapel, multiple restrooms and lounge area is ADA accessible and can comfortably seat 150 people for services.

Funerals do not need to be expensive. There are many options we can discuss with you.

  • We are a proud US Veteran funeral service provider
  • We are a full service monument and gravestone designer and can work in any cemetery
  • ALL cremations are personally performed. This entrusted service is never delegated or outsourced
  • We offer options of traditional viewing with ground burial or cremation
  • Specialized green burials
  • Inurnments
  • Traditional funerals
  • Ceremony webcasts.

We are also honored to provide services for the area's memorial societies, cremation guilds and Humanity Gift Registry.

Longwood Funeral Home further offers floral creations, audio & video memorial tributes, complete catering services and provisions for the transportation needs of the families we serve.

The Longwood Funeral Home is located on US Route 1 (East Baltimore Pike), 1/2 mile south of the entrance of Longwood Gardens.
