Chapman Cole and Gleason Expands Regional Presence with Acquisition

| From

BRIDGEWATER, Mass., Oct. 21 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Chapman, Cole & Gleason Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, a family-owned business that has served Greater Boston and Southeastern Massachusetts for over 146 years, has expanded again. By acquiring Prophett Funeral Home of Bridgewater, Massachusetts, and Prophett-Wales Funeral Home of East Bridgewater, the Chapman, Cole & Gleason firm has once again broadened its regional presence and service capabilities. Acknowledging the long history of the Prophett Funeral Home it acquired, which has been in the Bridgewater area for over a century, the new locations will be named Prophett-Chapman, Cole & Gleason.

"Our family shares a lot of history, values, and traditions with the Prophett Funeral Home," said Mark Chapman, the new Director who has joined Director Ray Zeoli in operating both locations. "That was important to us, important to me personally, and a big part of what makes this such a perfect fit." Zeoli is the former owner, who remains with the funeral home.

Chapman says there will be no significant changes to the way the funeral homes do business, although a variety of upgraded and expanded services, facilities, and resources are planned. "We have always seen our role as helping families get through one of their most difficult times with sensitivity, respect, and compassion. Ray holds the same beliefs, so why change what people appreciate most?"

A family-owned business that began in South Boston, Massachusetts in 1862, Chapman, Cole & Gleason also owns and operates six other Massachusetts locations, in Falmouth, West Falmouth, Mashpee, Milton, Wareham, and Martha's Vineyard.
