About

In 1939, brothers Donald and Robert Deware realized their dream and opened the Deware Brothers Funeral Home on Hancock Street, where our funeral home stands today. Centrally located in Quincy’s Wollaston neighborhood, we are proud to continue to serve the families of Quincy, ever-adapting our offerings to the changing needs and wants of our community.

We hold close the cultural traditions of local families and we are experienced in crafting and holding funeral services for our Chinese community as well as the local Protestant and Catholic communities and many other faiths represented in our beautiful city, as we have served families of all faiths for more than 80 years.

Honoring Chinese funeral services and traditions

We specialize in Chinese funeral services and can provide traditional service-related items such as burial clothing, ceremonial burning products and blankets. Well-versed in Chinese cultures and customs, our staff will assist to guide your family in the planning of a beautiful, culturally sensitive and dignified funeral for your loved one. Our staff is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English.

We know the stress involved with planning a burial or cremation service, especially after losing a loved one. Our funeral directors and support staff are happy to guide you through each detail, ensuring you're comfortable with the decisions and costs. Families receive our expert guidance before, during and after each service.

Care from a local team

Creating memories

Part of our commitment to the community is our ability to create thoughtful funeral and memorial services that celebrate life's rich journey. Deware Funeral Home welcomes you to share information about your loved one, such as their passions, sense of humor, hobbies and accomplishments. These important details allow us to design a personal tribute to honor their life and provides comfort to family and friends.

Veterans

At Deware Funeral Home, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. Our staff is knowledgeable about the benefits to which you and your family are entitled. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the process of creating a veteran memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one. In addition, we host community events annually in honor of our veterans and work closely with local veterans organizations.

Planning for the unexpected

In addition to serving families who need immediate assistance, Deware Funeral Home offers the option to plan ahead for a service. This option helps families monitor burial and cremation costs, ensures certain requests are met and relieves others from having to make these decisions at a difficult time.

We welcome everyone

Our Quincy funeral home staff has deep roots within the community. We share the same values and cherish the relationships we build with each person we serve. Feel free to contact us or come by to meet a caring member of our team and allow us to serve you.

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.

"The Deware Funeral Home team gave us extra time for the family members who are overseas to be able to speak on the screen during the church funeral service. It took a long time for each family member in Kenya to speak and be able to give their final farewell. Dan the funeral director and his team gave us all the time more than the allotted one which we felt was beyond exceptional. The Deware team made sure we gave our loved one a dignified funeral. Thank you very much."

"Tak Chiu Joseph Yeung was very courteous and supportive while he guided and helped our family make all the funeral arrangements. This was our first time planning a funeral and his guidance was absolutely essential in helping us get through the process to make a respectful showing of our Grandfather on the day of the service. Throughout the experience he was very kind and patient with us and made sure to fulfill all our requests and needs, even going as far as opening up the funeral home earlier than usual to suit our needs for burying our Grandfather at a specific time (following auspicious reasons) after a long procession trip across 3 different towns. We also really appreciated the efforts of the staff and especially the state troopers that guided our procession and made the trip to and back exceptionally seamless and smooth. Everyone was kind, helpful, and respectful. We thought the service was very respectful and thoughtful. Joseph and his team really made the planning process very smooth for us and we are very grateful for his professionalism, kindness, support, and patience in working with us. We plan to be using Deware Funeral services again in the future."
