The Vander Plaat Memorial Home of Paramus has been providing funeral service to the Bergen County, New Jersey community since 1927. Founded on the principles that funeral service is a commitment to serving the community, the strong dedication to these principles continue today. The ongoing dedication is evident in both the funeral services provided by our funeral home and the commitment to giving back to the community. When founder, Henry W. Vander Plaat, Sr. came to Paramus to establish his funeral home he saw the need to be involved in the community in which he lived and worked. Henry Sr. was very involved in many community and civic organizations; he was proactive in organizing the first Post Office in Paramus and in establishing the Paramus Volunteer Ambulance Corp. The legacy continues today as our funeral home provides and assists in community events.
