Mark Holmes began the Holmes Funeral Home in 1925 in the north end of Manchester, and relocated to the present location in 1948. In 1977, his sons Howard, Arthur, and Norman Holmes purchased the Watkins Funeral Home from the Watkins Family, maintaining the history of family-owned businesses and community involvement in Manchester. In 2017 the four members of the third generation - Scott, Howard, Richard, and Mark Holmes - entrusted the continuation of Mark Holmes's vision to Glenn and Tiffany Blumenstein and Brian Romanowski.
They, along with a staff of licensed funeral directors/embalmers and administrative staff members, are always available for assistance and guidance before the death occurs, at the time of the death, and the days, weeks, and months after a loss has occurred.
We encourage you to call us with any questions or situations with which you feel we may be able to help. As our motto says, "Personal Consideration is still a Tradition."
