A caring Maryvale funeral home

Chapel at Advantage Funeral HomeCentrally located on West Indian School Road in Phoenix, only a short drive from three of the valley’s cemeteries (Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery, Resthaven Park Cemetery and Holy Cross Cemetery), Advantage Maryvale specializes in helping create meaningful funerals for families from all walks of life. Together, we are the difference. We do the right things for the right reasons. Every family has a different story and helping them is our core purpose.

We accommodate traditional religious funerals, cremation memorials and contemporary celebrations alike.

The funeral home chapel seats up to 135 guests, and our flexible reception space can be customized for catered events. There is ample on-site parking, including spots reserved for U.S. military veterans. In addition to helping you choose a quality casket or urn to fit your price range, we can assist in creating a personalized tribute video to show during the service and arrange for catering everything from a breakfast buffet, to afternoon cake and coffee, to a full sit-down dinner.

Advantage provides an alternative to traditional funeral homes by offering affordable, easy-to-understand arrangements, without sacrificing high quality or care. At Advantage Maryvale, you can plan a service that’s expressive but not expensive.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"We wanted a very straightforward cremation, and the staff provided that... but they also went the extra mile to be sure that I understood and was comfortable with the paperwork and agreements, all along the way. They went above and beyond to help us when another health problem in the family made it difficult for me to obtain signatures from my elderly parents in another state. During a difficult time for us, they did their best to make things as stress-free as possible."
