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.

To get the most current information and updates available on all of our initiatives, upcoming seminars and workshops, as well as a live obituary stream, feel free to “Like” us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter & Google  

As always, please know that we are here for you at any time and for any questions or concerns, before, during or after a loss. 

The new renovations at our Methuen site are absolutely stunning.  The warmth and soft shades, along with our beautiful stained-glass windows have really given the interior a modern-day feel.  We are currently adding a cafe for families and guests to sit and relax during visitation hours.
