Welcome to Fred H McGrath & Son, Inc.

Fred H McGrath & Son, Inc. is a third generation; family owned and operated Funeral Home, located in the Village of Bronxville, New York. The McGrath family has been serving the surrounding communities of Bronxville, Eastchester, Tuckahoe, Mt. Vernon, Yonkers and Scarsdale since 1918.

Original owner and founder, Fred H. McGrath wanted to make sure that all families of the surrounding communities, regardless of their religious, ethnic or financial backgrounds were able to provide their loved ones with a proper and fitting funeral. So, in 1918 he started Bronxville’s first and only Funeral Home. His son, Robert, grandson Tim, and the rest of the staff at the Funeral Home continue to work with that mission in mind. Our goal is to meet all of our families needs as professionally and sympathetically as possible. The staff at Fred H. McGrath & Son, Inc. includes 6 NYS Licensed Funeral Directors with an average of 25 years experience.

Our experience and expertise will assure you quality service, and our licensed funeral directors will fully explain all of our available services and answer your questions. It is important to us that we continue to provide to our families the same high level of service and integrity that was first established by Fred H. McGrath in 1918


During this unprecedented public crisis, we are committed to the health and well-being of the community we have served for over 100 years. We remain open with the priority of honoring the needs of our clients in a safe and respectful manner.

To that end, we have the following precautions:
