Plugenia Griffin, founder (left)
Plugenia Griffin began life as a share-cropper's daughter in South Carolina, and made her way North during the Great Migration. She became the family provider and left a legacy that would lead her family to serve the Harlem and Greater New York communities for over 85 years and counting.
The legacy continues...
Plugenia's grandson, Keith Davis, and his wife Valerie co-own and manage the day-to-day operations of Griffin-Peters today.
Always At Your Service, In Your Time Of Need.
Welcome to Griffin-Peters.
If you are worried or stressed, we are here to help. My wife Valerie and I definitely understand the concerns you may have as you select a funeral provider. Entrusting your own care or the care of your loved one to people you may not know well can be nerve-wrecking. We are a small, family-owned and operated business, and we pride ourselves on our ability to serve and satisfy clients with diverse backgrounds and unique needs. We keep our promises, we tell the truth, and we will always make sure you have the best possible experience that we can provide.
For over 85 years, Griffin-Peters has worked to uphold the legacy of our matriarch and founder, Plugenia Peters; we provide exemplary service, dedication, and a staff that is diligent and professional to help you with whatever you have in mind. We are here to serve your individual needs and to help you honor and celebrate your loved one in a way that you will appreciate and cherish.
