Edward Richard "Dick" Boylan founded his business in 1958 with the purchase of a simple home at 188 Easton Avenue in his hometown of New Brunswick, NJ. In only a few years after this initial purchase, Mr. Boylan relocated the original building to a new location and built a larger, brick funeral home on the site of 188 Easton Avenue.
This new building, with multiple viewing rooms, office space, as well as a residence above, would accommodate a larger number of friends and family visitors for funerals as well as his own growing family.
In 1977, Dick Boylan saw a need for a funeral home to serve the increasing population of the south Edison area. He was able to build a classic brick funeral home at 10 Wooding Avenue in Edison, New Jersey, just off of the bustling Route 1 highway.
Both brick buildings still stand today to serve the families of the communities they are in.
Although Dick Boylan died in 2003, it is with great pride that both locations of the Boylan Funeral Home continue to be owned and operated by the second generation of the Boylan family.
