History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

The Beachwood Society is a family owned and operated cremation society.  We offer to the families we serve, a simple and dignified alternative to traditional funeral service.  Our purpose is to ease the burden of the families at one of the most difficult times of their lives.  The Beachwood Society is the only cremation society in Collier and Lee Counties that owns and operates its own crematory.  Having your own facility guarantees that your loved one will be in our custody with utmost dignity.  We are also affiliated with a local full-service funeral home for those families who request additional services.  Here at the Beachwood Society, we have been serving the community for over 30 years.
