My father Jon Peter Pearson Jr passed away on June 7, 2019 we had his service at the Pelham Funeral Home and it was beautiful. My father was the Captain of the Klondike IX his whole life, he was raised on the water catching fish and running the family business. Clive Anderson was absolutely amazing he went above and beyond decorating the room with our fishing tackle. They had Tuna rods out, throw nets, tackle boxes and lobster pots..it was exactly how our father would have wanted it. In such a terrible time it really touched our family to see him go the extra mile to make us feel at ease. Everyone who works here really does make a difference in such a terrible time. Clive sent us home with memory books, calendars etc. They even checked up on us a few days after everything was said and done. It’s something that no one wants to go through but we have no choice, they made the day as easy as it could possibly be and we are thankful for that.
My father, John Cermanski had suddenly passed away on Thursday, March 21st , 2019. My parents have been Pelham Manor residents for 40 years and my father was very active in the Pelham Community. He was in the Pelham Manor Volunteer Fire Department for over 30 years and was a member of the Pelham Civics as well as the in the Men’s Club of Pelham. We have attended many funerals at Pelham Funeral Home and each time we have gone, we see the same things: it’s extremely well maintained, clean, beautiful and all of the staff are extremely kind and helpful. Without hesitation, we called the Pelham Funeral Home right away to help plan my dad's final farewell. The funeral director, Clive Anderson is so kind hearted, genuine, and has an amazing heart. From the moment I called him to the ending of our planning time with him, he was extremely attentive, took care of everything right away and made the extremely difficult planning a bit easier because he was extremely helpful, passionate and organized. Even though we had limited time to plan a funeral, Clive was extremely supportive and very professional from the beginning to the end. He is the best of the best and we are blessed to have found an amazing funeral director to work with. He worked with the Pelham Manor Volunteer Fire Department who planned many parts of my dad’s services and Clive exceeded our expectations. He made dad’s final send off one to remember that will forever stay in our hearts. Everything that we had asked for and wanted he worked exceptionally hard to make happen. Thank you Clive Anderson and the Pelham Funeral Home for helping my family get through this extremely difficult time. We are grateful for your time, for your services and for running such a friendly, professional and beautiful funeral home.
Beautiful caring people.
At a most difficult time for our family, Jim O'Donnell and his team were absolutely professional and compassionate. Everything was handled with discretion, privacy and respect. They were a glance away if needed for assistance, yet gave us the feeling that the Home was completely ours to receive our guests. My mother looked peaceful and beautiful in repose; they really did a superb job. They helped us with information we hadn't thought to ask about, and let us know what was available, including costs, then let us discuss and choose in private. If you lose a loved one and don't know how to proceed, I give my heartfelt recommendation to Jim O'Donnell and the Pelham Funeral Home team to help you through your loss.
My father Thomas Cusack recently passed away. Me and my brothers had no experience dealing with this issue. Clive was a pleasure to work with from the start giving guidance and answering all my questions professionally and quickly. His staff were great. The funeral home is elegant, clean and they did a amazing job.
Cannot say enough about the staff and the service our family received. They raised the bar beyond anything I have ever seen done by a funeral home. I honestly want to thank them for being the best at what they do. ❤
When you lose someone you love, you are at your lowest and extremely vulnerable. Then you have Clive and Hannah who are incredible at taking your sadness and working with you every step of the way. My husband was a musician and I wanted to have his band members play a few songs...our dog Harry was also a big part of my husband's life and I asked Clive if he could attend the wake. All of my not so regular requests were answered with patience, compassion and understanding. Their attention to detail and their caring, kind approach is what helped us through the evening. Something that was so devastating, turned into something so beautiful and spiritual. The service they provided us made a profound difference at the end of one's life. Clive and Hannah are dedicated to helping you make it easier at a very difficult time. We highly recommend Pelham Funeral Home. We are deeply grateful for everything you did for us. Heartfelt love to you both, Joyce, Melissa, Casey and Harry Carroll
I am not normally motivated to write reviews, good or bad, about products or establishments. I am making an exception due to the wonderful experience that my family had with Pelham Funeral Home for my father-in-law. He died suddenly and we were forced to look around for a funeral home while we were still in shock from the prior evening. Pelham Funeral Home was the sixth place we looked at, and honestly we were ready to pick another establishment. However, we were so impressed with the celebration of life philosophy that PFH espouses that we didn't need to think twice once we saw it and spoke to Clive, the owner. The entire experience, start to finish, was as wonderful as you could expect from such a somber event. So many people that attended the funeral commented to us how they inexplicably had such a wonderful experience. Even the chaplain that was recommended to speak at the service, Reverend Lothrop, was wonderful, as advertised. Let me provide a few details to give you an idea: - you are provided access to the entire facility, not just a single room with the coffin. The home is in a nice neighborhood in Pelham with a nice feel. - one of the two main rooms is dedicated to the 'life celebration'. A video montage with music (that we had suggested my father in law liked) was playing in one corner. Several large photo montages were included. We were also encouraged to bring our own photo frames, and even other memorabilia that was important. For example, we brought wrestling figures since my father in law liked WWE, which ended up being great for the kids who came. - it was nice to be able to alternate between the room with the coffin and the 'life celebration' room - you had the opportunity to pay your respects, then spend some time understanding what the person was like. - Clive was awesome through the whole experience - he helped make the funeral planning as much of a positive experience as it could be, because we focused on the good things that we wanted to remember. All in all - I could not provide a stronger recommendation.
There are no words to describe what a fine tribute they provided for my mother's funeral. Clive Anderson is a thoughtful, knowledgeable man who provided us with tremendous support, understanding and resources. He was on call with us almost 24/7. I couldn't even have begun to think of all the beautiful items he provided for a setting for my mother's wake. I would highly recommend him and the Pelham Funeral Home without reservation
My Grandson was here this ,past week. We were and are devastated. I have to say Jim the owner could not have been nicer, more caring and truly concerned for,my daughter. He was wonderful and we appreciate him and all the staff there. This is a wonderful funeral home. We can not thank them,enough for all there help and compassion.
Clive Anderson and his staff at Pelham Funeral Home went above and beyond for my family. They helped us deal with the devastating loss of my nephew. They were able to return him to Ireland quickly and provided guidance and comfort through a very difficult time. Thank You Clive
Cannot say enough about our experience at Pelham Funeral Home. Losing mom was devastating and Clive gracefully helped us make decisions under such emotional circumstances. He guided us with professionalism as well as sensitivity. The whole staff was amazing. It is such a beautiful location. The details were perfect, from the music, to programs and slide show. It really felt like a celebration of moms life. We are so happy we chose Pelham Funeral home and would highly recommend.
Clive is such an incredible soul. He exceeded our exceptions beyond what we could have possibly imagined with the most thoughtful surprises. No detail was left untouched. Pelham funeral home could not be more accommodating and loving. Clive made us feel like a part of his family and showered us with compassion at the most challenging time. He not only opened his heart to us he allowed us to play with his gorgeous dog Paddington which brought us extreme comfort. I can't say enough, he deserves 10+ stars. Thank you Clive you will forever be in our hearts. Our father would have loved everything you put together. Love the Accocella sisters.
During one of the most worst times of my life, (my fathers passing) they were so professionally accommodating and genuinely hospitable I would recommend them to anyone who lost a loved one. Elegant and clean rooms as well as a fantastic staff made it easier for me and I couldn't thank them enough.
Losing a loved one is a difficult and trying experience. This time was made so much easier by Clive’a professionalism, expert logistics and kind demeanor. Our entire family was beyond impressed by his ability to handle everything - from the wonderful pictures of our grandfather around the funeral home, to stopping traffic on 287 for our procession... We all couldn’t believe how seamless everything was.
My husband's passing was very hard for me, when I met Clive to discuss the funeral arrangements, he spend all the time I needed to make the correct decisions, we sat together and he guided me through the process, he provided me with a tour of his facility, and introduced me to his beautiful dog Paddington, a cute labradoodle which he is training to become a therapy dog, in times like this, that is a great idea, specially for children losing a loved one The pallbearers were very respectful, they carried my husband with honor and respect , they directed traffic and they were very accommodating to the people attending the wake. Clive did all the arrangements with the church and the cemetery, he made all the calls and set up everything with them, which made my life easier since I didn't know how to begin. Clive also provided us with a private room where we could eat and drink during the wake or perhaps take a break if we needed to, because the viewing was from 3:00-9:00 PM. I am very grateful that Clive provided us with all these accommodations during this difficult time. A couple of days later, after everything was over, Clive contacted me to pick up items used at the funeral, I was not able to get to the funeral and Clive was kind enough to drive to my home and dropped off the death certificates, pictures, banners and everything that was used during my husband's stay at the funeral home. I am totally grateful that he was there to help us through this difficult time. Are in times like this, when you need a place like Pelham Funeral home where they give you the space to grief while they are taking care of business. They are the best!
As long time Pelham residents, our family had our father’s wake at the Pelham Funeral Home with Clive Anderson, funeral director, handling all arrangements for his wake and funeral. We cannot say enough good things about Clive and the professional manner in which he handled every aspect of our Dad’s final arrangements. Clive sat down for hours with our family to gather the details of our wishes and delivered every last one… and then some. For example, we had a last minute cancellation of a singer we invited to sing at our Dad’s funeral. Clive reassured us and found an exceptional singer and accompanist at the 11th hour. When the funeral procession drove by my father’s home following the funeral mass at St. Catherine’s Church, Clive stopped the procession, got out of the car and placed a rose in front of our father’s house. Unexpected details such as these helped to make our saddest day more bearable. Clive is an exceptional businessman and we are grateful for his compassion when we needed it most.
