Concord Funeral Home

The staff at the Concord Funeral Home is available to assist your family during this time of need. We believe in providing a personalized tribute to your loved one that reflects their life in the best way possible.

We offer the following services:

With this option, you receive public visiting hours or a private family viewing followed by a service at the funeral home or in your church. Services will conclude with either burial or cremation.

Some families prefer a service at the gravesite location with clergy, family, and friends. Public or private invitation is available.

A myriad of cremation options exist. Some families prefer traditional visiting hours at the funeral home followed by a church or funeral home service prior to cremation. Others opt for a memorial reception at the funeral home after cremation with public or private invitation. Families may also choose immediate cremation followed by a memorial or graveside service at a date convenient for them.

We will accommodate your needs to ensure your loved one's funeral service is in accordance to your every wish. It is important to utilize the funeral director, his staff, and facilities to personalize the funeral/memorial service as you request. We encourage you to listen to our suggestions as we will listen to yours. By working together, we will ensure your loved one's life is celebrated to your satisfaction.

Preplanning your funeral prior to a death allows you to express your own wishes. It relieves your family of the burdensome and stressful decisions at an emotional time. Preplanning does not require prepayment; however, a prepayment option is available. MacRae-Tunnicliffe's Concord Funeral Home is in compliance with the Massachusetts Funeral Directing Board rules and regulations in regard to pre-financed funerals. All contracts are in compliance and filed accordingly to ensure your money is allocated properly. We encourage you to call for an information-only conference to answer any questions. Please remember all questions are important questions.

When someone requires nursing home care, establishing a funeral trust must be considered. Medicaid requirements are complicated and necessitate an irrevocable trust or funeral life insurance. MacRae-Tunnicliffe's Concord Funeral Home can assist you in establishing the appropriate asset transfer for the prepayment of funeral expenses.

We will explain the Veteran's benefits offered by the United States Government for those who served in the military as well as their spouses.

If you have any questions, contact us at any time. Owner and licensed funeral director Glenn D. Burlamachi is always available to assist you. We are proud to be family owned, operated and occupied.
