"I could not have asked for more supportive care in planning for my husband's service. I was well taken care of, every decision was well explained, and I feel I was able to have the service my husband would have wanted."

"The staff at Nickerson Funeral Home in Chatham including the undertaker, support staff and especially the funeral director were all extremely professional, available, friendly and supportive. They make you feel as if you are planning your loved one's funeral with a family member, not a stranger. We went to them for the funerals of two parents that died within months of each other and both went off without a hitch of any kind. Our family would highly recommend Nickerson Funeral Home in Chatham to handle the funeral of your own family member."
