Welcome to The Hindu Funeral Home

If you are more comfortable reading this site in Hindi, simply click the option to your left.

The Hindu Funeral Home was founded in 2004 by Pradip (Peter) Kothari, 30 year community leader in Edison, NJ and Gregory W. Young, former Manager of Shanti Bhuvam Hindu Funeral Home and 5th generation professional Funeral Director. We dedicated ourselves to assisting Asian Indian families preserve the culture and traditions surrounding “Mahaprasthana”, the great departure from life.

Just as friends and family gather around those who have suffered a loss, so too does the caring staff of The Hindu Funeral Home. Literally thousands of families have found comfort in allowing us to guide them through this difficult time. Years of experience have taught us how to lift the burden of the families we serve with compassionate, yet professional care.

At The Hindu Funeral Home we understand the different needs of Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Christian and Buddhist when a death occurs. We are not a traditional American funeral home that occasionally does an Indian funeral. Our building, our staff, our training, our knowledge are focused solely on the community we serve.

The Hindu Funeral Home provides cremation poojas at crematories local to our families in New Jersey, New York City and the surrounding area. Franklin Memorial Park is 10 minutes from our Funeral Home. We have crematories with halls suitable for the pooja on site in North Brunswick, Ocean County, West Orange, Basking Ridge, Jamesburg and other New Jersey locations.

How do you measure grief? The anguish being experienced by families in India waiting the return of a loved one who died away from home, cannot be measured. The Hindu Funeral Home is called upon to provide this service all too often from anywhere in the U.S. In 2015 one of the largest Indian organizations honored us at their national convention for providing this service. Many insurance companies call on us. We have worked directly for the Indian Consulate. We fully understand the legalities and logistics of providing swift and cost affective repatriation.

Please access the menu bar for additional information. Or, click on the phone number to speak to us immediately. We do not use an answering service. Greg, Dawn, Marla, Alex or Chris will answer your call.
