Our primary mission is to care for our client families before, during, and after a loss has occurred. Being so involved with you in three distinct areas is what sets Dewhirst Family Funeral Homes apart from all the rest. As complete Funeral Care Advisors, we specialize in creating unique tributes, ceremonies and celebrations of life. We also offer advanced planning and post funeral care services, as well as seminars on the entire funeral planning process for your group or organization. A rich tradition of compassionate care at Dewhirst Family Funeral Homes means that we will always engage in our most important job: taking care of you and your family.


 What's New


(Above) On October 22nd the Dewhirst Funeral Home hosted a FREE Community Estate Planning Seminar! Presenters included (left to right): Richard Dewhirst, CPC, CFSP who discussed why he is personally committed to educating the community on Advanced Planning, why it is so important for families to preplan, what he finds are the three "most common" questions or concerns regarding funeral planning, and options regarding cremation; Elder Law Attorney Mary Howie, Esq., MBA of Howie Law who discussed wills, trusts and probate concerns, as well as Medicaid issues and more; and Methuen Veterans Representative Tom Hargreaves who discussed military and veterans benefits.
