About

Edwin L. Bennett Funeral Homes, founded in 1950, is one of the oldest funeral companies in Eastchester, New York. Centrally located in Westchester County, our beautiful and spacious facility borders the historic Village of Scarsdale—as well as the cities of White Plains, New Rochelle and Greenburg.

A funeral home for everyone

At Edwin L. Bennett Funeral Homes, we serve all faiths at our graciously appointed, handicap-accessible facility. Our peaceful funeral home is designed to provide an elegant and dignified setting for remembrance. Visitors will find seating arranged in conversation areas where small groups can gather apart from the main areas. Soft music provides a backdrop for quiet reflection. Additionally, our uplifting works of art and collectibles are intended to make everyone feel at home. The main viewing rooms and chapels are warm and inviting, and our flexible floor plan can be arranged to accommodate all types of services.

WHV 2020 - Level 4We honor veterans

At Edwin L. Bennett Funeral Home, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Four Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, we are honored to serve our nation’s heroes and take this responsibility seriously. We have taken steps to ensure our staff is knowledgeable of all the benefits available to military veterans and their families.

In addition, we host community events annually in honor of our veterans and work closely with local veterans organizations. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran’s memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

Personalized funerals and cremation services

Our mission at Edwin L. Bennett Funeral Homes is to help families create personalized funerals and memorials. This approach keeps us open to traditional religious rites as well as contemporary gatherings that deeply reflect a person's life. That means that whether you want a basic cremation with a scattering in a personally meaningful place, a funeral in our chapel with cemetery burial nearby, or a modern celebration of life with live music and a send-off that expresses the passions of yourself or your loved one, we are happy to deliver.

If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

A trusted Westchester provider

We're proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. Our funeral home is one of five Dignity Memorial providers in New York's Westchester County, along with Garlick Funeral Homes, Riverside Memorial Chapel and Louis Hirsch & Sons—all in Mount Vernon—and Whalen & Ball Funeral Home in Yonkers.
