The Shaeff-Myers Funeral Home is family owned and operated with roots in both the Ambler and the Philadelphia areas and is one of the seven oldest funeral homes in the country still in operation. Mr. Shaeff founded the funeral home originally located in Blue Bell in 1860. Three generations of this family served the community and moved the funeral home to Ambler in the 1940s.
Robert E. Myers, a second-generation funeral director from Philadelphia, purchased the funeral home from Mr. Shaeff in 1978 to form 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.
Both Richard and Robert are active members of many organizations in the greater Ambler area community including the National Funeral Directors Association, Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association, Montgomery County Funeral Directors Association, Rotary Club of Ambler, the Mattie Dixon Community Cupboard, Fort Washington Fire Company, First Presbyterian Church of Ambler, Supplee Presbyterian Church, and Ambler Main Street.
The Shaeff-Myers is committed to providing personal attention and comforting assistance to those who need it the most.

"Funerals are not to benefit the dead, but the living. They have a number of unparalleled therapeutic benefits. As a rite of passage, the funeral assists you in recognizing the passing of your loved one, supporting you as you start your life without the deceased, and reintegrating you back into the social group as a person whose loved one is no longer alive." ~ How to Go on Living When Someone You Love Dies by Therese A.
