Our Roscommon Town Funeral Home is located very close to the town centre. Construction work commenced in 1979 and the doors opened in 1980 with a very positive response from our client families. It was purposely built to look like a private residence so that people coming to spend time with loved ones could feel at ease in the surroundings. Over the years we’ve updated and refurbished on many occasions to keep up with the requirements of our client families while still keeping the homely feeling.
Today, the funeral home stands on a large site with beautifully landscaped gardens. Inside it is often described as luxurious yet practical. It is quite a simple yet effective design. On entering you arrive at a reception area that leads into the main hall. From here you can go into the sitting room, ladies and gents toilets or you can enter our main viewing area. It is in this viewing area that people pay their respects and sympathise with the bereaved. This room then leads into a large waiting room where people can remain until removal time.
We are very much aware that some people have misconstrued conceptions of a funeral home being a cold, dark and unfriendly place, we do our very best to eliminate these ideas. We invite anyone who wishes to see our funeral home to make an appointment and we’d be more than happy to provide an escorted tour through our premises.
Our modern fleet are all well maintained and are kept in our new garages. Each vehicle is meticulously cared for even down to being covered with dust blankets after polishing. In our fleet at the moment we operate mainly Mercedes, but also have other vehicles.
