Our funeral director, Carmella, was AMAZING.  She was sensitive to our needs and went above and beyond to make everything easy and comfortable.  She made saying our final goodbyes to our Mom an easier transition for us to go through. When making arrangements, we were given many options and time to make decisions.  At the service, we were given as much time as we needed and we were checked on frequently.

Carmella was very discreet in arrangements and left us alone when we discussed things as a family.  She and all the staff who helped at the church, and the limo driver, were excellent.  I had complete confidence in all my decisions.

Carmella's level of care and concern in translating our family's wishes throughout the process, made a difficult time easier on us.  Her professionalism and empathy in the arrangements for our mother's service were excellent, exceeding our expectations.

The Funeral Director, Carmella, was so patient with me in pre-arranging my Dad's funeral service. The funeral was beautiful and meticulously directed and coordinated. All staff involved, including Mr. Imburgia and Receptionist, were very compassionate and offered me exemplary care and service.  I felt Carmella was still there for me even after the service.

Mike was awesome!!  True Gentleman.  Made the family relaxed.  Main reason that I recommend Shropshire's, it's the third time that our family used this firm.

Carmella made the process professional, yet personalized.  She remembered all the little things from our selection visit with Mom and Dad.  Staff were all responsive to family and guests needs.  Especially helpful with in and out of vehicles.  The funeral home itself is beautiful and offers both the space and privacy you need.  5 Stars to all.

Michael accommodated all our needs during a difficult time.  He was compassionate and went above and beyond to make my son's memorial very special.  He did a wonderful job so we may have a viewing of my son.  We had concerns that that may have been impossible.  The facility was above expectations.

The services provided by the funeral home were extremely well done.  We appreciate the professionalism and compassion provided to our family at the passing of our mother. Many thanks to Carmella, Michael and Staff.

Michael Okon did an outstanding job.  Went above and beyond.

We highly recommend MSBFH for anyone looking for the best service provided by an extremely compassionate staff. The loss of a loved one is very difficult but the loss of our only child was absolutely devastating.  This firm made the most difficult day of our lives very manageable. They took care of the entire process, so we didn't have to focus on that aspect, only our grieving. Most meaningful was the attention to detail at the service, professionalism toward all the family and guests, the recommendation of Reverend Brenda Shaw (who did a fantastic job of presiding over the service) and the kindness of all parties involved, including the limousine driver. Carmella was absolutely wonderful. She is very compassionate and nothing is too much to ask.  She was not pushy with the sale of the products and respected our choices. The funeral home is beautifully decorated.

Carmella Imburgia is wonderful.

Carmella was the best!!       Mike Bullard Family 


Michael Okon goes above and beyond to make you feel that your loved one is the only one. Ashley (secretary) went out of her way to accommodate us with the DVD. Carmella makes you feel like family.

Norman was there from the beginning to the end........ the whole time.  He was awesome and I would recommend this firm to all family and friends. Very professional.

Michael understood our needs and offered several options. Thanks to Michael, things I hadn't even considered were covered.  He walked me through all the steps and details, while being sensitive to my needs.              D.R., Chester Co., PA


Norm and Carmella at Shropshire's, along with the rest of their team, gave our family excellent service.  They gave us support throughout the entire funeral process, during our most difficult time.  We would like to thank them. Our father, Lou, had already pre-arranged for almost everything and Shropshires had everything ready. They coached us through the details and it meant a lot to us.  They gave us exemplary care.

The Scattolini Family, Media, PA


The services provided to us for the funeral service of Lawrence F. Oster, Sr. were excellent.  Carmella Imburgia was amazing and went over and above for us.  She was extremely knowledgeable, very nice and very helpful. We would recommend this firm to our family members and friends.

Hello Norm and Gerry,

"I would like to take a minute and provide you with a letter of appreciation to Carmella and her staff regarding her handling of my father's funeral, Richard J. Miller.  Words cannot express my family's gratitude for her guidance, patience and wisdom throughout this entire event.  Again, Carmella not only saved the day with a last minute documentation issue (finding Veteran Papers), her calming peaceful reassurance allowed the Miller family to focus on other items during our time of need.  We are blessed that she was involved, so blessed."

With most sincere regards,

David P. Miller, Thornton, PA


I could not be more pleased with your service for the funeral of my husband, Thomas J. Armstrong, Jr.  Everyone was very caring and accommodating.  Mike Okon was there for me no matter what the request was!  The kindness and compassion was there from everyone, right down to the gentlemen who greeted us at the door.
