My father recently passed and we were fortunate enough to work with The Wareham Village Funeral Home. We couldn't have been happier with the way Chris, the owner made things so easy for us at such a difficult time. With the utmost professionalism and sincere concern he walked us through the process so that we could honor our father in an elegant and caring environment.
Dave Miller — Our family resolved to purchase a funeral contract in advance as my Father-in-Law, was about to turn 92. My wife and I, unfamiliar with funeral homes in the Southcoast area, visited and/or telephoned several, all of which turned out to be corporately owned and managed, and individuals with whom we spoke were professional, and knowledgeable, but also intent upon "selling" us whatever combination of service(s), burial and equipment brought the most money to the home and its owners----in several cases out-of-state entities. This was NOT what we had hoped to find, so we restarted our search checking smaller, locally (preferably family owned) funeral homes in the area. I believe that Wareham Village Funeral Home was perhaps the third of this nature with whom we spoke, and from our initial call it was clear that we had found exactly what we were seeking. Director Chris Consolletti had nothing to "sell" us; rather he sat with us at considerable length, and listened to what we envisioned, and hoped to provide, for my wife's Father. Our own primary objectives were "dignity" and "affordability". Chris made several suggestions on each of those fronts; explained exactly what options he could offer; and stuck with it until in a single meeting, we had precisely the contract we wanted. He took care of establishing the Funeral Trust and explained its workings, and explained that my wife's Dad, as a WWII combat veteran, was entitled to a graveside Honor Guard ceremony, which he also arranged (We had not known this.) We explained to her Dad what we were recommending for him, and he was thoroughly pleased. The cost was to be $4000-$6000 LESS than quotes received from the corporate home chains. I will not elaborate on the service itself, which took place this past August, except to say that it was EVERYTHING we could have wished, and Chris personally presided over every activity, helping my wife with assorted forms and other responsibilities she would address as her Dad's Personal Representative. We, the entire family, and the service attendees could not possibly have been more pleased and grateful, and we would recommend Wareham Village Funeral Home and Chris Consoletti without qualification to any family seeking personal and focused attention; sound advice and suggestions; dedicated support throughout the process; attention to budget realities; and in the end, an outstanding outcome for a loved one.

No one likes to think about funerals or funeral homes, because is means the loss of a loved one, whether it be and older person who has lived a long life, or a younger person who has their whole life ahead of them. I have just celebrated the life of a fourth person through Wareham Village Funeral Home. Chris, the director, is phenomenal. A request is handled with care, compassion and consideration for the grieving family, no matter how silly they may sometimes be, the request has special meaning to either the deceased or a family member. In my experience with Chris, and Wareham Village Funeral Home, he treats each deceased person with the tender loving care as if that person was a member of his own family. Thank you Chris from the bottom of my heart. I couldn't have done this without you. Grace
