History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

Our funeral home has been family owned and operated since 1903 when the Melenyzer family started in the business on Main Street in Belle Vernon. In 1954, the Ferguson family purchased the business and is now in it's second generation of serving families. We have one of the largest facilities in the Mon Valley and yet we are small enough that each family gets the level of attention and care they deserve.
