Baldi Funeral Home

For over 86 years, families in the Philadelphia area have relied on The Pennsylvania Burial Company and the Baldi-Jacovini family for quiet dignity and unsurpassed support in funeral arrangements and services. No one has more experience or genuine concern than the Baldi-Jacovini family and staff. People trust us for our sympathy, our honesty and our respect – regardless of what kind of funeral ceremony, if any, is requested. You’ll find our entire staff comforting during a very difficult time.

In 1921 Pietro Jacovini established the Italian Burial Casket co. Located at 924-926 South 9th street, on the corner of 9th and Hall Streets. A pioneer in the funeral business he was one of the innovators of the Pre-Paid Funeral. Pietro sold funeral policies to families through an insurance company collecting sometimes only pennies towards their funerals.

An accomplished inventor holding several patents, a civic leader and the editor of the only Italian Daily newspaper of the time, The L'Opinone, Pietro was seen annually leading the New Years Parade down Broad Street on his black stallion horse. After passing in 1936, his 3 sons William, Joseph & Pietro Jr. were eager to expand the business to South Broad Street, a main avenue through the city. Together with their uncle Alfonso Baldi, & Son Victor Sr.. a property (Formally a music conservatory) was purchased, 1327-29 S. Broad Street. The name Pennsylvania Burial Co. Inc. was established in the relocation and Baldi Funeral Home as a sister office both operated essentially as one business.

Over the years 3 story brownstones were purchased next to and across the street from the building to supply parking for services held at the establishment. These parking lots hold in excess of 100 vehicles for multiple services. The funeral home consists of 4 chapels, 3 on the first level and 1 on the second level with elevator access.

In 1988 to better server our Asian Community the second floor Chapel has been converted to accommodate the Buddhist funeral Ceremonial. Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese, Vietnamese & Cambodian translation is available upon request . Because South Philadelphia has always been a melting pot for new immigrants Spanish translation is also available upon request.
