OUR COVID-19 POLICY

During these difficult and unprecedented times of the COVID-19 virus, the health and safety of the families we serve is our main priority.

If you would like to make arrangements or speak directly with us, but prefer to be in the comfort of your own home, please call us at 401-821-7306 (in Coventry) or 401-596-2352 (in Westerly) and we will assist you over the phone. For those of you who need to reach me immediately, you may call me on my cell at 401-447-2790.

 Additionally, if you are planning a wake, memorial gathering or a funeral, the RI Department of Health has mandated that no more than 15 people be present for any gathering, including in funeral homes. We will hold a gathering at our funeral home following this criteria, until such time that the mandate is lifted or changes. Graveside services, no more than 15 people can attend according to RIDOH mandate.

Please understand that as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, requirements from the RI Department of Health may also change, which in turn, would dictate what can be done within the funeral home and any other public gathering place.

As directed by the CDC, we are taking the utmost precautions by cleaning and sanitizing our facilities multiple times a day.

Our caring staff of funeral professionals have always provided service, compassion, and comfort during a difficult time, and this time is no different. We will continue to be here and give you peace of mind in your time of loss, by handling all of the details and arrangements of your loved one’s funeral or cremation service, with complete professionalism, compassion, and care.

For over 80 years we have served families in our community and throughout Rhode Island. With 2 locations: Coventry, (which also includes a private Cremation Center) and Westerly, all offering personalized funeral, burial, or cremation services that are held with care, compassion, dignity and respect.

Our facilities have been upgraded and offer natural lighting through our windows and skylights, state of the art music sound systems, a large, well lit 100+ car parking lot and of course, comfortable seating for families, friends and the community.

It has always been an honor to serve you and we hope you and your family remains safe and healthy during this difficult time.
