James H. Delaney & Son Funeral Home

Friends, Neighbors, Community...

As established members of the hometown community, we understand the security of dealing with people that you know you can trust. We have built our reputation on trust.

Over the years, our commitment has been to provide you, your friends and neighbors with sound advice and personal service at times that can be emotionally difficult. Many families first learn to know us when they attend a loved one's funeral. Later, they call us when they are in a time of personal need. They know from experience that they can count on us to be there...as reliable as a community landmark. This is why we have done what we have done.

Recently you may have seen in the Walpole Times a notice that the funeral home property and the property next door were sold to the 40 Common Street Realty Trust and the 48 Common Street Realty Trust. This is our commitment to the Town of Walpole. The property has been secured by the Delaney Family for another generation. There are no silent partners or hidden corporations, just the same people you have known all along. James H. Delaney & Son Funeral Home is investing in the future. We are here to stay.

James F. Delaney
