Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

The Kenneth H. Pollard Funeral Home was founded by Kenneth H. Pollard in 1953 and is proud to be family owned and operated for over 60 years. From the first day our services were offered and continuing today in the spirit, “Our Family Helping Your Family”, we are humbled to carry on this tradition by offering our services with a capable and caring staff in comfortable surroundings to help those in a time of need.

In 1969, the tradition continued to the next generation when Michael N. Pollard joined his father in the family business. Michael and his wife, Maureen, purchased the funeral home in 1993, perpetuating a vision that continues today, as a source for complete funeral information with professional comfort and guidance.

Throughout the years, families of the Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire have appreciated our efforts to help them plan a meaningful service for a loved one or friend.  Available 24 hours, 7 days a week, our experienced and dedicated staff is here to assist you in determining which service is appropriate for each individual’s needs and to ensure those wishes are followed.

A funeral represents a unique opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one or friend, their memories, values and accomplishments. We are here to help you through this most difficult time.
