James A. Murphy established the Murphy Funeral Home in 1915. It began in a small storefront at 906 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester, MA. In 1934, the business moved to where the current facility is at 1020 Dorchester Avenue.
Today James T. Murphy and his son, Thomas P. Murphy operate the firm with the same kind of local commitment that began in 1915. Both Jim and Tom reside in Dorchester and are active in many community affairs including the Colonel Daniel Marr Boys & Girls Club, Dorchester Savin Hill Little League, Columbia/Savin Hill Civic Association, St. Williams Church, and many others.
The Murphy Funeral Home recognizes that the community is comprised of diverse preferences of religion, philosophies and beliefs. You will find that this firm is responsive to the needs and wished of all families. By offering a wide range of services, each family has the ability to create a meaningful and appropriate way to remember their loved one.
The Murphy Family is committed to satisfying your needs with the finest funeral service available. Our funeral home facilities are constantly maintained and improved, as are the kinds of services we offer.
