About

Alvah Halloran and Son Funeral Home has been providing funeral and cremation services, along with compassionate care to the families of the Gates-Chili and surrounding Rochester, New York, communities since 1957. For more than 60 years, our commitment to serving Rochester families has remained unchanged and our funeral home team has always responded to the changing needs of the community.

We celebrate life

Let's start with a story. Every person has a unique life story and at Alvah Halloran & Son Funeral Home, we consider ourselves expert storytellers. We work with families to plan one-of-a-kind tributes that celebrate the passions and interests that make a person special.

We can find inspiration almost anywhere. Did he hit the slopes every weekend? Imagine a chapel decorated to look like a ski chalet with his treasured ski gear on display. We could work with a caterer to serve hot cocoa and a hearty beef stew. Envision a '60s dance party with the greatest hits playing and guests decked out in their grooviest getups. Suppose you want a traditional funeral service without all those bells and whistles? Don't worry; we're happy to do that, too. We're all about meeting your needs and wishes.

We care about Rochester

At Alvah Halloran and Son Funeral Home, we take great pride in our community involvement and give back as often as we can. We hold several community events annually, including a car show fundraiser, food drive and Halloween event for kids. Each year, these events grow in popularity and allow us to support many local organizations, including Hope Hall School.

We're proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers, offering compassionate care, personalized service and exceptional customer satisfaction.

History

The Halloran family has a long history of funeral service in the Rochester area. The late M. Alvah Halloran, a 2nd-generation funeral director, and his son, H. Daniel Halloran, established Alvah Halloran and Son Funeral Home in 1957 at our current Gates location on Chili Avenue. The original building was an old farmhouse that was converted into the funeral home. It remains among the oldest standing structures in the town of Gates.

Growing family business

As the business began to grow, more space was needed to accommodate the growing number of families the funeral home served. So in 1961, a large addition was added onto the original home structure.

In 1973, M. Alvah Halloran passed away unexpectedly. His son, Dan, ran the funeral home for many years after his father's passing and retired in the late 1990s. Since then, our beautiful funeral home with its picturesque setting has become a part of the Dignity Memorial network.

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.

"On May 29, 2021 we had a Mass for my Mother-in-law but she died in a nursing home (not of Covid) in April of 2020 . At that time we had a very small viewing and Adam did a beautiful job of preparing her for that. She always wanted to look her best and she would have been very pleased at how she looked."
