The Shaeff-Myers Funeral Home is family owned and operated with roots in both the Ambler and Philadelphia areas, and is one of the seven oldest funeral homes in the country still in operation. The Shaeff family founded the funeral home originally located in Blue Bell in 1860. Three generations of the Shaeff family served the community and then moved the funeral home to Ambler in the 1940s. Robert E. Myers, a second-generation funeral director from Philadelphia, purchased the funeral home from Walter Shaeff in 1978 to form the Shaeff-Myers Funeral Home. Robert’s son, Richard, became a licensed funeral director in 1996 making him the sixth-generation funeral director in the business. Richard Myers and Robert Myers are currently the licensed funeral directors in our full-service funeral home, offering traditional and non-traditional services for people of all races and faith. Shaeff-Myers Funeral Home is committed to providing personal attention and comforting assistance to those who need it the most.
The staff at Shaeff-Myers Funeral Home are committed to serving the greater Ambler area. In addition to caring for families in some of their darkest moments, Richard and Robert are active members of many area community groups. Our licensed funeral directors are active members of the National Funeral Directors Association, Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association, Montgomery County Funeral Directors Association, Rotary Club of Ambler, Kiwanis Club of Ambler, the Mattie Dixon Community Cupboard, Fort Washington Fire Company, First Presbyterian Church of Ambler, Supplee Presbyterian Church, and Ambler Main Street. We are devoted to service in and around our community and continue to support many of our local community groups and activities.
