"[Bradley Ford] made suggestions to personalize the funeral into a tribute to my father’s life rather than concentrating on our loss. It left our entire family with a sense of pride and Dad’s accomplishments. When my husband died, we only had to call Mr. Ford and he was again there for all of our family, this time not only to serve our needs as a funeral director but now as a personal friend…Mr. Bradley Ford and the staff at Ford Funeral Home will be our only choice in the future."

Where service is more than just word!
The Ford Funeral Home of Bridgeport, WV is pleased to announce the installation of a York Merchandising System, a revolutionary method of displaying caskets and other funeral service merchandise.
A departure from the traditional method of displaying funeral merchandise, this new concept was developed to combine comfortable surroundings and pleasant décor with a consumer-tested method of showing product assortments. The selection room has replaced the traditional full-size casket displays with fractional-cut caskets mounted and displayed into permanent modules. The fractional-cut caskets represent full-size models made either of wood or metal and cover a wide range of prices. Interior fabric samples and corresponding full-size casket photo are displayed in drawers directly beneath each fractional casket. The additional space provided by this style of casket display allows the funeral home to offer a full range of memorialization items including: keepsakes, theme blankets, appreciation gifts for clergy, musicians and family friends.
"Bradley met our needs in a kind, gentle, professional manner. With his attention to detail, he anticipated our questions almost before we asked them… For his help and that of the staff, we will always be thankful."
- The Family of Dwight Fowler
