I’m a former Philadelphia woman who still subscribes to The Inquirer even though I live elsewhere. In 1995, my father died and having no knowledge of what a burial entails, I went to the DeChristopher Bros. in Bensalem. I remember a young woman named Theresa who helped me through the process as if I were a member of her own family. She took me through every step and everything she promised, she did. Again, in 2007, my Mother died, and again, 12 years later, I went to the DeChristopher’s and I received the same, courteous, professional attention. In this morning’s Inquirer (Sunday 4/26/2015), I read an article about another company getting involved with Catholic Cemeteries. And I read all the complaints about them. I pray this company does not affect the DeChristopher business because DeChristopher is A-No. 1 as far as I’m concerned. I remember them fondly and remember how everything went smoothly without one upsetting incident. I pray for all life’s best for the DeChristopher business.
Your kindness and patience helped ease the pain of completing the final gift I could give my daughter.
It really turned out perfect!
Thank you soooo much! It looks incredible! Beautiful!Thank you again. I’m so pleased with the work!
Upon receipt of your installation notification, I went to the cemetery to see the monument. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your guidance and expertise in choosing the stone. It’s absolutely beautiful! It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Many, many thanks!
Just wanted to write to say Thank You very much, for your very professional handling of our family’s needs.
Our Dad recently passed and I contacted your company about doing some engraving on our family headstone. Having never done this, Mrs. DeChristopher made us feel at ease in accomplishing our goal. Thank You Mrs. D.
I visited Holy Cross Cemetery and viewed first hand the work you completed. It is well done and very much appreciated. Thank you all DeChristopher Family.
We wish all the success in the world, and bright sunny skies!!

The lettering you did for my father’s headstone looks perfect. Thank you from our family and friends.
Just wanted to send a BIG thank you on the stone! It was exactly what we asked for! It is absolutely perfect! Was worth the wait for sure! I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a stone! Again we send a big thank you for the awesome job, we love the stone, everything came together perfectly.
Great Job! Thank You & God Bless You!
The family visited the grave site, GREAT JOB! Everyone was impressed and completely satisfied. Thanks for your patience and straight-forward professionalism (no gimmicky salesman-like nonsense like others offering “50% off this week only”, etc.) We’ll certainly recommend your business whenever possible.
Thank you DeChristopher Family, Job well done, just back from Peter & Paul…Love the memorial.
After Lakeview informed us that the memorial was installed, we decided to see it for ourselves. It’s quite lovely and well done, and we are most pleased with the result. Thank-you for making this difficult task so simple. Your information and attention was invaluable. Also, your website was easy to navigate, a very important feature when one cannot be onsite.
Thanks again from all of us.
Thank you so much for everything. The stone is beautiful and everyone was happy with it. The memorial service was beautiful.
Went to the cemetery on Easter Sunday. We were very happy with the monument and of course overwhelmed with sorrow at seeing their baby’s name. The finality of her life engraved in stone!
You made this difficult task as easy as possible for all of us and we are most grateful for that.
May your kindness, caring and inexhaustible patience with us be greatly rewarded by the Good Lord with all His blessings on you and your loved ones.
Memorial is beautiful…everything is perfect. Thank you.
Thank you for your gentleness and kindness in dealing with our sadness and grief. Thank you also for the beautiful work on our son’s headstone. It was so wonderful that you installed it so quickly. It is so much better visiting him, seeing it there, as sad as it is already. Take care.
We went to the cemetery this morning and the engraving is perfect.
I really want to thank you for the work you did at my parent’s, Albert and Grace Tustin, grave at Holy Cross Cemetery. The gentleman I dealt with on the phone was always so nice and polite. The headstone had been tilting for quite a while, but the maintenance people at Holy Cross never fixed it properly until you guys got involved. Thank you again, I really appreciate all you did.
Beautiful work. This is exactly what I wanted. You have been 100%. Once again, fantastic. Thank you very much. John
Thank you for all of your help. It looks beautiful.
In 1981, we purchased an upright headstone for my dearly departed Dad from Guest & Williams. Several years later, to our horror, my Dad’s headstone was vandalized and desecrated at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. We had to pay for a new one. G&W forgot to add my Dad’s favorite saying “Praise You Jesus” that was inscribed on the original memorial. I wanted them to correct their oversight but my Mom was mistakenly under the impression that the stone had to be dug up and she didn’t want Daddy disturbed again. I was upset but respected her wishes and didn’t pursue it. I just buried my beloved Mom in October 2014 and discovered that DeChristopher Brothers Monuments and Memorials had bought out G&W in the 90’s. I talked to Mike DeChristopher and asked if his company would honor the mistake made by the company that he and his brothers had purchased. I provided him with the receipt from G&W for the second stone and Mike was more than happy to accommodate me. He didn’t charge me extra for the “Praise You Jesus” inscription that meant so very much to me. His customer service went above and beyond. The stone looks beautiful. DeChristopher Brothers has been in business since 1915. I can see how they’ve lasted 100 years. They’re family owned and operated and a class act. Thank you, Mike, for making the most difficult time in my life a bit easier. May God Bless you and your family.
Dear Charles & DeChristopher Memorials,
We want to thank you so much for the beautiful work you did on out mother’s headstone.
It really turned out beautifully and exactly the way we envisioned it. We know out mom looks down from heaven with a smile and is resting in peace now that her grave is marked.
Thank you again,
The “Wolfgang” family.
Thank you, memorial looks great. It was certainly a pleasure working with you. Please do not hesitate to use me as a reference, I have nothing but praise for all that you did
Thank you for all your services through the years. God Bless.
DeChristopher’s Memorials is the greatest. I have been told how beautiful my son’s headstone is. My son and my grandson’s picture is engraved on the headstone. Awesome!!!
I’ve been looking through your site for tombstones and can not find a plain double one. I’m looking to purchase one but have my own idea what is to be ingraved along with the names. Please direct me to the proper place.
Dear DeChristopher Bros.,
I just received the photo of the engraving on our family memorial wherein three names were added. Thank you for your beautiful work!
Thank you Vince, it is beautiful!
DeChristopher Brothers was recently tasked with cleaning, updating and repairing the Cherry Hill Township war memorial located at 820 Mercer Street in Cherry Hill. I cannot say enough good things about the end product. The memorial looks brand new. Not only was the work completed within a very tight deadline, but it was above and beyond what was expected. Each person I dealt with at your company was friendly, helpful, professional and accommodating. Thank you for helping honor our fallen heroes by presenting a top-notch final product. I will gladly work with DeChristopher Brothers again!
Thank you Vince ! It’s beautiful , you did a wonderful
My dad and I visited the site yesterday to place Christmas decorations on the stone and were so pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful it all turned out. Thank you so much for a terrific job. We all love it. Our best to you.

So grateful to have used DeChristopher Brothers
Thank you so much for making the difficult process of ordering my Mom’s marker sooo easy.
The marker is beautiful and everything that I wanted for her. I asked for it to be placed by October 11th and it was there two weeks early. Thank you so much for caring as you do.
The Memorial looks great!!! Thanks for the good work.
Your company has been helping my family for years. You recently inscribed my dad’s name onto the family headstone, and as always did a beautiful job. Thank you on behalf of the family of Anthony Celeste.
We extend our thanks to the organization, the members and all who worked on our memorial. We cannot appraise adequately the value of your service. From the depths of our hearts, thanks!
Thanks for all your assistance with the design and installation of this monument. We realize that we may be two of your more challenging clients, and we thank you for your patience and willingness to help us. Your suggestions were always spot on!
Thank you so much for getting back to me. My sister was here over the weekend and asked me about the progress. I had completely forgot about it. I assumed I was in for a long ordeal. This was the most pleasant surprise. You have been so great to work with and I will always recommend you to others. Hope you & your family enjoy a wonderful Christmas and a great 2013.
Thank you for the lovely job! I got the photo, had to print it so I can just look at. Thanks for being so pleasant to deal with.
The Memorial looks great!!! Thanks for the good work.
