One Of The First Funeral Homes In New York City!
A Legacy Of Caring Since 1832
In 1832, when our great, great grandfather Samuel Benedict opened his business in Greenwich Village, New York City he called it an undertaking parlor. He started as a church sexton, arranging funerals for members of his congregation. A generation later, America called upon his son, Charles A. Benedict, to arrange the funeral of President Garfield after his assassination in 1881. Charles answered his country’s call again, in another time of sorrow, arranging the pallbearers for President Grant’s funeral in 1885.
Around the turn of the century, our family relocated to Eastchester, preserving to this day our independence as a family-owned funeral home. With a heritage of professional guidance, our company has earned the trust of people from many ethnic backgrounds, cultures, and faiths.
