See What Our Families Are Saying

I am thrilled to announce that E.F. Boyd & Son Funeral Home and Crematory has been selected as an honoree for the Smart Business Cleveland - Family Business Achievement & Business Longevity Awards for the second time! We were honored in 2017 and now 2020! In my Bill Boyd voice “What a blessing and a privilege it is to serve others and be recognized for it!” Alexandria Johnson Boone of GAP Productions nominated E. F. Boyd & Son, Inc. for this prestigious award! And we are grateful for her confidence in EFB&S! The judges were impressed with our nomination and our company’s story of success. Our company will be recognized with the other honorees at The Family Business Achievement & Business Longevity Conference on September 23rd and featured in a special editorial report in the September edition of Smart Business Cleveland.

The Family Business Achievement Awards will recognize family and closely-held businesses that best demonstrate innovative business practices designed to enhance the business dynamic, and the Business Longevity Awards will recognize non-family organizations who have reached 50 years in business.

Online Memorial

We can create a customized, online memorial for you to share with family and friends. The memorial includes the obituary and any photographs you wish to provide. It will serve as a place for visitors to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, and light candles in honor of your loved one.

Tribute Video

We can produce a personal tribute video that can be played at the service and online. Simply provide us with the photographs you want to include and we will transform them into a video celebration of your treasured memories. DVDs or digital files of the video are also available.

Funeral Fund Donations

We realize the expense of a funeral can be a burden. We provide the option for friends and family to make monetary donations to help cover funeral costs. These gifts can be made easily and securely online through our website, and are paid directly to the funeral home on behalf of the donor.

Ordering Flowers

We make it easy for friends and family to send flowers to your home or service to honor your loved one. We have partnered with local florists to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page of our website. You can also use this feature to select the flowers you would like at the service. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home.

Sharing Service Details

We reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the service for your loved one. We post the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your Facebook or Twitter page or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it.

Daily Grief Support Emails

We offer one year of free daily grief support emails to the families we serve. It is important to us that we continue to comfort our families through the difficult days that the first year of grieving can bring.
