Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Why Us?

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

McHoul Family Funeral Home was founded in 1950 by Alexander McHoul. During the decades of service to the Dorchester community, the staff of McHoul Family Funeral Home has refined the meaning of excellence in service.

“Not only do we provide our families with the best possible personal service, the highest quality of merchandise, and the most innovative of memorialization technologies – video tributes, memorial web sites, beautiful personalized print keepsakes, and webcasting – we do it all affordably.”
