Cremation Service Worcester, Milford, Westborough, MA
The Consigli-Ruggerio Funeral Home is located in Milford, Massachusetts and has served the people of Worcester County for years. The funeral home was founded by the Ruggerio brothers, Daniel and Alexander Ruggerio, in 1948. The site chosen to build the funeral home was 46 Water Street in Milford, which is still the location today, although the building has been redecorated over the years in order to give the receiving area a homier and more inviting feel.
The house was originally owned by the brothers’ mother, Carmela Ruggerio, who sold it to them in order to help them start the family business. It was known as Ruggerio Brothers Funeral Home until 1975, and the name changed again in 1981 as David Consigli was brought in as funeral director and embalmer by Daniel Ruggerio.
This family business has served the residents of Worcester County, as well as those of Norfolk County, since its founding in 1948. In additional to formal burial and funeral services, direct cremation (done without a viewing) and memorial services are also provided; this can help bring down costs, as cremation costs are usually quite a bit less than those of a traditional funeral.
