The William F. Spencer Funeral Service was established in 1896. At that time, most funerals were held in the home of the deceased. We were the owners of two hearses and four horses that were used on all funerals.

Times have certainly changed since our 19th Century beginnings. However, our service to the people of Greater Boston remains as professional, reliable and dignified as it was when we first opened our doors in 1896.

We remain ready to serve your family in your time of need, as we've done for generations of families in the Boston area.  Please feel free to call us at any time, any day of the week, for immediate assistance.   Or, visit our funeral home in person at your convenience.
