Our History

Our History

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.
