About

Rock Funeral Home in New Bedford, Massachusetts, has helped families plan funeral and memorial services for more than 50 years. Throughout our history, we have expanded our funeral home and services to better meet the needs of our community.

A place of comfort

Foyer at Rock Funeral HomeAt Rock Funeral Home, we understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are committed to providing compassionate care and professional and personal service. Our New Bedford funeral home is warm and welcoming, offering your family and guests a comfortable environment in which to reflect and remember. We are also fully handicap accessible with a newly added wheelchair lift in the center of the building.

We understand the stress of planning a service, especially after losing a loved one and welcome all families to honor their cherished people in ways that deeply reflect their memories and suit your needs. One way to do that is planning a funeral or cremation service that celebrates life. This approach provides a family the flexibility to create something that truly represents their loved one's life.

We'll sit and listen to your stories—learning about passions, interests and hobbies—and turn those into a fitting tribute. We believe that every life should be well celebrated, and we'll help you every step of the way. With a focus on personal attention, we'll guide you through every detail, including obituaries, custom keepsakes, photo selection, video creation, and third-party catering options.
