Personalized memorials and celebrations of life

At James J. Dougherty Funeral Home Inc., we believe that every service should be as unique as the life lived. We capture the essence of your loved one to create an event that honors your special person and gives friends and family a chance to come together and remember.

Whether you want to arrange a traditional funeral service or modern celebration of life, large gathering or more intimate service, we will work with you one-on-one to ensure your needs and budget are met. The funeral home has flexible chapel space; our funeral celebrant can help you plan a service that deeply reflects the life lived. From casket selection, to floral arrangements to music selections, decor, mementos and more, we guide you through your choices with care.

Cremation in Levittown

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.
More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with all the choices:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

There are many cremation providers—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

Veterans funerals

We deeply appreciate those who have sacrificed for our freedoms and feel privileged to honor veterans and their families in need of funeral and cremation services. We also help coordinate government benefits and offer special pricing on veterans services.

Funeral planning in advance

In addition to assisting with an immediate need, James J. Dougherty specializes in working with families to make final arrangements in advance. When you plan ahead, you relieve your family from financial and emotional burdens while ensuring your wishes are fulfilled. We offer in-person and virtual consultations, as well as a free Personal Planning Guide.

History

James J. Dougherty Sr. founded his namesake funeral home in 1972. His friends called him Jim.

Born in Philadelphia, Jim fought in the Navy during World War II and graduated from Dolan College of Embalming in 1941. He ran a funeral home in Port Richmond from 1955 to 1961, then he became partner in the Beck-Dougherty Funeral Home in Levittown. He served there until he opened his own business on Trenton Road in Middletown Township, on the site of the former St. Stephen's Church of Christ.

Jim cared for families and built a reputation for excellence. He retired from funeral service in 1986, after appointing his daughter Miriam president of the firm in 1985. Miriam worked alongside Jack Bonner, who became a partner in the business in 2012. The two guided the business together until Miriam retired in 2022. Today, Jack and Kate Morales maintain the high standards Jim and Miriam always insisted upon.

Jim died in 2009, at the age of 91, but his legacy lives on in the compassion and professional guidance offered to every family who walks through our doors. James J. Dougherty Funeral Home Inc. became part of the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers in 2023.
