About

Advantage Funeral & Cremation Services Maryvale Chapel was established in the heart of Phoenix in the Maryvale community in 1968. The mortuary has a long tradition of honoring special needs and requests. Our team of caring associates is committed to providing honest, affordable care and compassionate, professional service. We understand that losing a loved one is an emotional experience, and we want to make things a little easier with economical pricing and convenient packages.

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. Whether you’re planning in advance for yourself or need to plan a loved one’s service immediately, we work with you to create a tribute that reflects your faith, culture and budget. 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.

Cremation options

If you’re interested in cremation, the team can explain the process and the different memorial and burial choices. From a simple cremation without a service, to a full-service funeral before or after the cremation, you can select from affordable options to meet your needs.

For families who choose the time-honored tradition, our full-service funeral home uses a private crematory dedicated to our family of funeral providers. This allows us to have complete control of a cremation from start to finish and means your loved one never leaves our care or the care of our affiliates.

Planning a funeral ahead of time

Funeral and cremation arrangements and associated expenses can be overwhelming. In addition to assisting during your immediate time of need, our funeral directors specialize in working with families to plan final arrangements in advance. By preparing these details ahead of time, you provide peace of mind to your loved ones while outlining your wishes. You also lock in today’s prices and avoid future price increases, which can help ease your family’s financial burden during an already stressful time. We are here to discuss low-cost funerals and cremations and walk you through the pre-planning process when you are ready.
