Foulk & Grieco Funeral Home

Built in 1862 by Charles Dingee, the Dingee Mansion was the family's residence until 1945. It was known as the original "Farm House" of West Grove and is now considered one of Southern Chester County's Historical Landmarks. It was established as a funeral home by Thomas Foulk in 1954 and was purchased by Matthew Grieco in 2000. The Foulk & Grieco Funeral Home has undergone extensive renovations since Matthew took ownership. A new parking lot has been added and construction has been completed to make the funeral home an elegant and convenient location for any type of funeral ceremony. In addition to traditional funeral services, we also look forward to serving the growing Hispanic Community. In keeping with the same traditions as Mr. Foulk, and the development of new services, it is our privilege to serve the families of Southern Chester County.
