As we continue to navigate through this pandemic, our service to our community will comply with the recommendations put forth by the CDC; Federal, State and Local Government Authorities; OSHA; and the National Funeral Directors Association.
The safety and well-being of the families in our care, our staff, and our community-at-large is our top priority.
Our experienced staff will work closely with each family to develop and implement a funeral service plan that will adhere to the latest guidelines while continuing to uphold the highest levels of compassion, integrity and excellence in service.
Doherty Funeral Homes has been serving the funeral needs of families in the Wilmington area for over 100 years. Today, we continue the tradition of compassion, excellence and integrity that started so long ago. Our professional and courteous staff strives to provide the very best in personal service in helping you and your family deal with the loss of a loved one. It is our distinct privilege for our family to serve your family.
We offer comprehensive Bereavement Services to assist you and your family through your grief experience.
We Facilitate Only One Service or Visitation at a Time. Some area funeral homes will hold multiple services in their facility at the same time while we commit to only facilitate one service at a time in our funeral home. This means your family and friends will have the exclusive use of our entire facility and the full attention of our staff during the service or visitation.
Our son died unexpectedly after a short illness. We phoned Doherty Funeral Home to handle the arrangements for us. The personal care that our entire family received from Chris Gillis and the Staff at Doherty was exceptional. Thank you so much for helping us in our time of great need. Your caring, compassion, empathy and many kindnesses made a very, very difficult time easier for us. We will always be grateful to you.
