About Us


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.

The Charles F. Dewhirst Funeral Home in Methuen, MA, The Charles F. Dewhirst Andover Funeral Home in Andover, MA, The Julius B. Emmert Funeral Home in Lawrence, MA, The Arthur J. Scott Funeral Home in South Lawrence, MA, and The Goundrey & Dewhirst Funeral Home and Cremation service in Salem, NH offer over 100 years of combined experience in meeting your family’s emotional, spiritual and financial needs.

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.

We provide a relaxed atmosphere and a team of trained financial service advisors to offer you a tradition of excellence in care. We work with our client families in advance of need, at the time a death occurs and during the period that follows the actual ceremony. To maintain our long-standing commitment to professionalism in the field of funeral service, we are proud members of the National Funeral Directors Association. At Charles F. Dewhirst Family Funeral Homes, our goal is to supply guidance and services that distinctly fit your needs.

A rich tradition of compassionate care at the Dewhirst Family Funeral Homes means that we will always engage in our most important job: taking care of you and your family.
