Our West Roxbury funeral home was established by P. E. Murray in Roxbury in 1908. The Murray family built a new funeral home at the present location in West Roxbury in the 1950's where it operated as P. E. Murray Funeral Service under the direction of Arthur Murray.
After the death of Russell (Buddy) Shea in 1962, P.E. Murray Funeral Home purchased the Daniel L. Shea & Son Funeral Home in February, 1963 which was located at 512 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain. Mary A. Shea continued to work for P.E. Murray Funeral Home (under the direction of Arthur Murray) for many years.
P.E. Murray became associated with George F. Doherty & Sons in 2000.
The building was in need of renovations and updating. After P.E. Murray became affiliated with George F. Doherty & Sons, the funeral home was reconstructed and brought up to date and renamed P. E. Murray - George F. Doherty & Sons Funeral Home.
It is now considered the most prominent up to date modern facility in the Boston area. Completely handicap accessible, it is an exquisite and beautiful facility with an elegant landscape and immaculate interior. The rooms are furnished with oriental rugs and antique furniture. The large, well illuminated rooms are capable of accommodating all types of funeral and memorial services, large and small. A working fireplace, peaceful background music, and a downstairs family room provide an ambiance of warmth and comfort.
George F. Doherty & Sons are proud to extend their services to those in need and welcome any questions or comments.
