History

Edward F. Carter Funeral Home was founded by Edward F. Carter in 1950, with locations in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, and Montrose, New York. At that time, Edward was employed by the New York Central Railroad System, working in Croton-on-Hudson.

Family tradition of funeral care

Partnering with his wife, Catherine, and his sons, Edward Jr., and Richard, the family spent the next 20 years serving every area cemetery. After his death in 1972, his son, Edward F. Carter Jr., continued the family business, growing it to become among the largest funeral providers in the area. Hard work, dedication and genuine compassion for Croton-on-Hudson families enabled Edward F. Carter Funeral Home to grow and flourish and become the respected funeral home it is today.

"Mike Trimble, Rob, Marina and the rest of the team couldn't have been more helpful, concerned and there for us whenever we needed them (especially Marina who received the onslaught of calls and questions). Everybody should die with them."

"We worked with Carrie, who was very compassionate, professional, and understanding. She patiently and sensitively walked us through our options and the pricing. We intend to plan a memorial service at a later date, and Carrie assured us that she would be available to assist with that."

"The staff at Carter's were so kind, professional, and patient while we dealt with the passing of my mom. Mike did a fantastic job of making sure all of our needs were met, and he ensured that all arrangements at the wake and burial were handled professionally."
