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.

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Rock Funeral Home provided our family a sense of peace and support during the most difficult time. We lost our beloved husband and father after only a short time of being sick. We were in such a state of shock and disbelief when we lost him, Rock Funeral Home was extremely supportive and comforting to our entire family. They were available with any

questions we had, at any time of the day. When we arrived at the funeral home for the wake services, our Dad looked just like he should, they did an amazing job preparing him for the services; it gave us all a sense of peace. Our funeral director, Aime Delaney, was absolutely incredible. The attention to detail was beyond words, the level of compassion and professionalism she exhibited was comforting to our family during this incredibly difficult time. We cannot say enough about how wonderful Rock Funeral Home treated our Dad and family."

"From the moment we entered the funeral home to make arrangements for our mother we were met with compassion and lighthearted banter. That was exactly what we needed on that very difficult day. Thank you, John, for getting us through that sad experience. We were extremely impressed with the way the funeral home captured the essence of our mother t

hrough their life story display. The funeral home was staged beautifully for the wake. We were allowed to create a playlist of music that was very meaningful to our mother as well as provide them with a large number of photos to be included in the continuous photo stream located in several areas around the room. It brought tears to our eyes when we saw how beautifully everything was displayed. Many friends and family members commented how incredible everything was and how they had never seen anything like it. Our mother's wake was truly a celebration of her life rather than her death. We would absolutely recommend Rock Funeral Home to families who wish to celebrate their loved one rather than focus on the sadness of their passing. Their professionalism and eagerness to support the family with requests was very much appreciated."
