History

In 1904, Albert Lincoln Moore moved to the Salt River Valley of Tempe, Arizona, where he founded a mortuary business. In 1906, he transferred his home and funeral business to Phoenix.

Albert established A.L. Moore & Sons Mortuary at 333 West Adams St., in the heart of downtown Phoenix, on the corner of Fourth Avenue and Adams. This location soon became known by neighbors as the “corner with the garden.”

A 2nd and 3rd generation of Moores

After Albert's retirement, his sons, Albert Lee and Harold, continued their father’s legacy, and A.L. Moore & Sons Mortuary stood out as one of the top funeral homes in the state of Arizona.

Eventually Albert Lee’s son, Albert Lee Jr., followed in his grandfather's and father's footsteps. He continued to lead and innovate while maintaining the same high level of service excellence set by previous generations. He grew the family funeral home business until his retirement in the 1980s.

The Grimshaw funeral home

Also, in the early 1900s, Hal H. Grimshaw was an undertaker who formed the Grimshaw-Action Mortuary Company. In 1927, Hal founded Grimshaw Palms Chapel at 334 West Monroe St. in Phoenix. In 1961, Grimshaw Mortuary joined with Bethany Chapel Mortuary, located in north central Phoenix, under the ownership of Jack Byrd, and operated as a widely respected funeral home for more than 80 years.

2 funeral families become 1

In 1997, A.L. Moore & Sons Mortuary and Grimshaw Mortuaries combined more than 180 years of experience to establish A.L. Moore-Grimshaw Mortuary Bethany Chapel.

Located in the north central corridor, A.L. Moore-Grimshaw Mortuary Bethany Chapel continues to serve the Phoenix metropolitan area with a legacy of commitment, service, dignity and honor instilled by the Moore and Grimshaw families.

A.L. Moore-Grimshaw Mortuary Bethany Chapel is also proud to be the only Phoenix mortuary to have received the National Funeral Directors Association’s Pursuit of Excellence Award for Number One Funeral Home.
