Family Owned vs Chains

JR & Allie Ambrose, 5th Generation

We are proud to say that Ambrose Funeral Homes is currently one of the few family-owned and operated funeral homes regularly servicing Arbutus, Lansdowne and the surrounding communities. Our funeral home was founded by Joseph T. Ambrose, Jr. and wife Alice Agnes Ambrose and his mother Stella Mae Ambrose in 1936. The business began at Cross and Dexter Street in the "Pig Town" section of South Baltimore. The funeral home was later moved to 414 West Franklintown Rd. in West Baltimore. On September 6, 1948, it was moved to one of our current locations at 1328 Sulphur Spring Rd. in Arbutus. Over the years, our family realized that there was a need for a second funeral home. On June 1, 1990 we branched out to the Lansdowne area where today our second funeral home is located at 2719 Hammonds Ferry Rd.

Our funeral home is currently run by the forth generation owners, Joseph F. Ambrose, Jr. and Sean P. Ambrose with the fifth generation right behind (pictured: JR & Allie Ambrose). Despite the recent takeover of other family owned funeral homes by conglomerate enterprises, we fully intend on remaining family owned and operated. We feel that our family serving your family is the best way to serve our community. We regularly assist our clients in arranging funerals for whatever type of funeral they wish. Such as traditional funeral services, out-of-state burial, cremation or body donation. We are able to make funeral arrangements at the time of need, or before the time arises with or without pre-funding; that decision is up to you.

Our family and staff will be here for you when the need arises, and you will be able to depend on us to treat your loved one with the care and dignity you would expect to receive. Please feel free to call us at any time.
