What we stand for

Our promise

Today, tomorrow, and forever, our commitment to you stays the same.


Every life is unique, and we promise to honor and respect each journey, crafting ceremonies that reflect each individual.


Navigating grief can be overwhelming; we stand by you, providing direction and solace every step of the way.


Beyond a service, we're committed to helping families create lasting tributes that transcend generations.

Our story

As one of the oldest and most recognizable landmarks in the area, Manchester Funeral Home & Crematory is a stately ode to Manchester history. Established in 1932, our funeral home and cemetery has evolved greatly over the years to accommodate the evolving needs of our community. Yet our commitment to service remains the same. Even as we modernize our services and facilities, we stay true to our belief that honoring and celebrating life is deeply sacred and personal.
