So helpful finding a burial they serviced back in 1968! Lost grandmother found! No words to say how special this was for us!

I want everyone to know what great care that was taken by John Rowe and Phil Short
For my mom Linda Mason. I have known both of these families my whole life. I have never seen more attention to every detail given by our family. I would strongly recommend this company for any Funeral services needed.

You have been so kind, patient, and supportive during a difficult time. Everyone has commented on how beautiful your lovely Victorian home is and the Wake. You made sure that I had all the information necessary to make important decisions and provided the necessary guidance. The Funeral was so beautiful and the interment was handled so well. It was a seamless process. Thank you for everything!

I want to thank you for the kindness and attention to detail you showed to me and my family at the passing of my husband.

The planting of a tree in his memory in the forests of Mass. is something my husband would have treasured and which I hold close to my heart. It gives me such a warm feeling to know that some where in Mass. there is a living tree in his name.

I am dropping you a note personally to say Thank You for the lovely service that was performed for my mother. I would like to send my heartfelt gratitude.

Bill, I could not let the day go by without getting this short note off to you to let you know how impressed I am with you and your staff. As the past Worcester County Commander of both the American Legion and the AMVETS, and I attend a lot of funerals. Going back to your funeral home for several friends and family members, I have seen what a first class operation and staff you have on hand. With your son, Phillip, joining you I know you will continue to carry on such fine service to the citizens of Marlborough and the area. God bless your efforts.

John Thomas Mahan, Worcester County Service Officer

Bill, Words cannot express how great you were with me and my daughters when we went to you to arrange for Ed's funeral. You were business-like and patient with us and he service you took charge of for us were most comforting. I am very grateful for all of the paperwork you handled. You and Phil make a great team. I have told people that at such a traumatic time they could not find anyone better to have around to take charge. Gratefully.


Thank you so much for all you did for my family. I appreciated it so much, as did my entire family. Everything was handled just the way I wanted it to be, by you and your staff.
