Our Holliston, Massachusetts Location
When you suffer bereavement, a funeral for a member of your family or close friend can be one of the most difficult days of your life. Everything your family and friends ever thought about a loved one is expressed on that day. We recognize that a funeral is a meaningful event. A funeral that is properly planned can help ease the pain of separation, which naturally accompanies death. There is no more stressful period for a loved one than that encountered after a death occurs.
In making funeral arrangements we work closely with you to ensure that the services are personal. A funeral service is a reflection of the person who has died and is designed to comfort the survivors, be they family or friend. It is a time of gathering to grieve, share memories and experiences, and reflect on a unique life.
We believe that as part of the community, a foundation is laid where it is our primary objective and responsibility to perform a superior service for all the families we serve.
Chesmore Funeral Home and Cremation Services Incorporated is a family owned and operated business with locations in both Holliston and Hopkinton Massachusetts.

Assisting families and friends with loss is our privilege and honor as funeral directors. As our community continues to feel the increasing impact of Covid-19 (Coronavirus), please be assured that we have protocols in place and are continually monitoring ongoing developments. The Massachusetts Funeral Directors Association has been in regular contact with numerous state and federal agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, ensuring that the information our funeral home receives is as current as possible.
We are still operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week making certain that those entrusted to our care and the families we serve are receiving the utmost compassion. Our sympathies go out to anyone who has the additional burden of grief and loss during this time, and we are here to guide each family with their particular needs on an individual basis.
As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Take care.

Hopkinton Renovation- Update!
We are pleased to announce that after more than a year of construction, our expansion and renovation is nearing completion!
We are thrilled with how everything has come together and how we were able to preserve the character of the building while incorporating fresh, updated and expanded amenities. Some of our new improvements include a chapel which can accommodate larger groups of people for visitation and services along with another moderately sized room which will be used for smaller services. You can expect brand new handicapped accessible bathroom facilities, updated technology, and more.
Although our facilities will be still be undergoing some construction, please rest assured that we are still able to serve the community with the same care and compassion you have come to know and trust. As with any kind of remodeling, construction is necessary. Our funeral home will continue to operate throughout the entire renovation and our doors will remain open to everyone in the community.
