Who We Are
We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
When we sit down with a family, we have just one goal: to create a fitting, memorable and affordable service for their loved one. Together, we explore the wide variety of services and products available, as well as a wealth of creative ideas and suggestions.
Together, we'll design a memorial or funeral service that suits their needs now, and in the future. Families who come to us know that years from now, they will have deep peace-of-mind because in coming to us, they've done their best to honor their loved one.
Maceroni Funeral Home was founded by Bernardo Maceroni on Federal Hill in Providence in 1927. From a meager store front location on Atwells Avenue, Bernardo’s son Anthony moved the funeral home to North Providence in 1956. It was one of the first facilities constructed specifically as a funeral home in Rhode Island.
After the death of Anthony Maceroni in 1974, his son Bernard became the 3rd Generation to own and operate the funeral home. Even though he continues to be very active in all aspects of the funeral home, Bernie recently passed on the tradition to his nephew Anthony Hamel, who is the great-grandson of the founder Bernardo Maceroni. Anthony represents the 4th generation dedicated to compassionate and professional service to the community.
