At the Longwood Funeral Home & Cremation of Matthew Genereux, 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.  

In 2018, the Longwood Funeral Home & Cremation of Matthew Genereux, Inc. was elected to the membership of SELECTED INDEPENDENT FUNERAL HOMES.  Membership in this organization is extended by invitation ONLY to independent firms having achieved the highest standard of service and integrity.

In 2008, we 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 100 people for services.

Now, 10 years later and serving more families, the Longwood Funeral Home and Cremation of Matthew Genereux is underway in their expansion project(s) of the property and facilities to meet the growing needs of the public.  {see pictures under the tab, "Our Facilities"}  In 2017 we expanded and re-surfaced our on-site lighted parking lot.  Currently, our interior has been spruced up and arranged to facilitate services to accommodate 150 people.  The life video collage displays will now be able to be viewed on multiple screens within the funeral home.  

This is a just a snapshot of what is to come...and for all the families we are fortunate to serve.
