About Us

Who we are

Celebrating life since 1917

As a proud member of the Philadelphia community since 1917, we're honored to help families celebrate their loved ones. We pledge to ensure that every funeral and memorial service is deeply personal, fostering healing and remembrance.

What we stand for

Our promise

Today, tomorrow, and forever, our commitment to you stays the same.


Every life is unique, and we promise to honor and respect each journey, crafting ceremonies that reflect each individual.


Navigating grief can be overwhelming; we stand by you, providing direction and solace every step of the way.


Beyond a service, we're committed to helping families create lasting tributes that transcend generations.

Our story

Our family has been serving grieving families with care and dignity since 1917.  Starting with Ray V. Hancock (Deceased), Undertaker on Cayuga Street in the Nicetown / Germantown section of Philadelphia, our funeral home moved to its current location on Roosevelt Boulevard in the early 1960’s.  Since our establishment, there has never been a single minute we have not been ready and “on-call” to help.  Whether you prefer services ranging from a Traditional  Funeral with visitation followed by burial in a cemetery to simple Direct Cremation to any and all types of alternative arrangements, we have the experience gained from one hundred years of continuous service to help you.  We are proud to be in our fourth generation of Hancock Family ownership and operation.  We are independent, NOT part of a larger group, big corporation, or affiliated with any other funeral homes.
