Our Heritage

On September 3, 1953 at 4:00 PM at Fort Dix in New Jersey, Samuel Granby, Jr., was struck by lighting. While recovering at the Fort Dix Hospital from 2nd and 3rd degree burns of the lower extremities, one of Mr. Granby’s duties was to take the deceased persons to the morgue. This was his introduction to Mortuary Science and the care of the dead.

Mr. Granby’s interest in Mortuary Science became an extension of his love and caring for people. Mr. Granby enrolled and later graduated from the McAllister School of Embalming in August 1957. After completing his apprenticeship with the Wiley Funeral Home, Bronx, New York in 1958, he received his New York State Funeral Director’s License. Mr. Walter H. Wiley permitted him to “hang his license on the wall” and this was the beginning of the Granby’s Funeral Service, Bronx, New York.

After serving twenty-five (25) years in business, and with the great support of his wife, Ayris, and family, Mr. Granby began the search for a building of his own. On April 27, 1984, his dream was realized, he purchased the building where Granby’s Funeral Service, Inc. is now located.

Additionally in 1984, Mr. Granby’s children, Ayris and Lamont, both joined him in business. Upon completion of their bachelors’ degrees, they both entered and graduated from their father’s alma mater, American Academy McAllister Institute for Funeral Service. They both served their residencies with their father and today they are New York State Licensed Funeral Directors.

In 1994, the Granby Family realized the need to expand their business; therefore, they began the planning for the construction of the second floor of their building. In 1996, within five months the construction of the second floor was completed. In November 1996, the second floor was dedicated. The two chapels are named in honor of the mothers of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Granby. The staff lounge was named after one of their dedicated employee and friend.

“Service to Mankind” Since 1958, Granby’s Funeral Service, Inc. (the Granby Family), considers themselves as advocates for the community through community service and outreach. This service and outreach is exemplified in their desire to help others within our community whether it may be with the funeral of a loved one, or with scholarships for the college bound students, or sponsorships of activities which empower our youth, or with donations to various learning centers, or with a donation to a charitable organization.

“Quality Education must be available to our young people.” Through the vision of Mrs. Ayris Granby, Granby’s Funeral Service, Inc. has help to establish numerous scholarships within our community to support the need to educate our youth.

Over the years, the compassion of the Granby Family is unrelenting. The success of their business can be attributed to the compassion and professionalism of the Granby Family and their staff.
