'A funeral should never cost more than a family could afford' was the motto that Walter B. Cooke adopted when he founded his funeral home in the 1920's to serve the metropolitan New York community. At that time, his establishment prided itself in offering 'dignified funerals' for low prices—a philosophy that has continued for more than 80 years.
Tradition is the cornerstone of Walter B. Cooke Funeral Home. Our staff continues the tradition set by Walter B. Cooke by providing personal attention to all of our families' needs and individual desires, serving all faiths and tailoring to a family's choice of services, whether at the funeral home, church, cemetery or crematory.
