We provide a wide range of services, from sitting down with you to discuss future needs to grief counseling after the death of a loved one.
Our funeral home was founded in 1898, and was purchased by Donald Cole in 1977. His son, Allen, bought the funeral home from his father in 1999, continuing the tradition of service to the Chelsea area.

There are many benefits to planning your funeral services in advance:
TOGETHERNESS: You can openly share your desires and wishes, and listen to input from your extended family. Nobody is left wondering what you would have wanted.
NO PRESSURE: When pre-planning a funeral, there is plenty of time to consider the options and make careful, thoughtful decisions. You can choose a gravesite on a warm, sunny day, think about which casket or urn you would like, and revise the obituary until it is perfect.
CONSIDER THE COSTS: Pre-planning lets you compare costs, and decide what services and merchandise will best suit your circumstances. You can get an estimate, take it home, and think about it before making a final decision.
PAYMENTS: You can make payments on a pre-arranged funeral, with no interest charges. Some families have difficulty coming up with the financial resources at the time of a death.
PRE-PAID FUNDS ARE PROTECTED: If set up properly, pre-paid funerals are not counted as assets when the owner applies for medicaid. Even if medicaid is not needed, most of our pre-paid funerals are guaranteed, meaning your family gets the goods and services you purchased at no additional expense. In short, pre-payments allow you to freeze the costs at today’s prices.
PEACE OF MIND: When a death occurs in any family the grief is tremendous and the healing takes time. Most people feel good knowing that everything is prepared in advance, and the survivors will not be struggling to make difficult decisions while under stress.
You have two choices: Plan ahead, or wait until death forces you to make arrangements.
If you choose to plan ahead, whether you want to pre-pay or not, please call or e-mail us today.
We offer choices in cremation service, including:

We want to help your family choose services that fit your needs. We will walk you through your options without pressuring you, and we will help you to compare the costs of different options. Regardless of your choice, we will treat your loved one with respect, we will help you write and place obituaries, we will obtain death certificates promptly, and help you chose the final resting place for your loved one's ashes. We will not try to sell you services or merchandise you do not need.
