About Us
Our Family Helping Your Family

The Kenneth H. Pollard Funeral Home was founded by Kenneth H. Pollard in 1953--- the year Tenney High School was built, and the city of Lawrence celebrated its 100-year anniversary. He and his staff offered services in the spirit of our family helping your family. From the first day, we have been as close and ready to help as a good neighbor.

The Tradition Continues

In a time when the concept of neighbors helping neighbors is becoming lost in daily life, we are proud that we are able to carry on this tradition by offering a caring and capable staff and comfortable surroundings in order to help those who grieve.

In 1969, our 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, thus perpetuating Kenneth H. Pollard Funeral Home as the source for complete funeral information and professional guidance. Through the years, families of the greater Lawrence area have appreciated our efforts to help them arrange meaningful and appropriate funeral services.

Our Professional Approach

We believe in providing services of the highest quality and value. This requires professionalism, thoughtfulness, follow through, and an eye for detail. We take the time to make sure that everything is done according to each family's wishes. In this way, we know they receive greater satisfaction on value.

Another key ingredient in value is getting more than you expect, and that's what we constantly strive to provide at Kenneth H. Pollard Funeral Home. Our goal is for every family to feel they have received the finest service plus a little something extra.

A funeral represents a unique opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one---the memories, values and accomplishments. It is also an important part of the grieving process. That is why our attentive staff is trained to help you through this most difficult time.

Each family's needs are different and special. We are dedicated to creating services of remembrance which are appropriate for each family. We listen with sensitivity, answer all questions and respect your choices. Then, we take care of the details. Whatever your situation, we are here to help---before, during and after the funeral.

Service To The Community

William J. Fay, IIThe Kenneth H. Pollard Funeral Home is proud of Methuen and we believe that we have an on going responsibility to enhance the quality of life for its citizens. Our contribution to the community goes far beyond the funeral service. We know that the funeral itself is only the first step in the grieving process. In the weeks and months that follow, we continue to serve by keeping in touch and offering assistance. We can help connect people with support groups and other resources of comfort during the difficult times, as they desire.

Our staff members are involved in organizations dedicated to making Methuen a better place to live. We support our school children with projects such as the Read Aloud program. We also help our senior citizens with pre-planning seminars and free transportation for the Seniors Annual Ball.

To familiarize people with funerals, the related decisions that must be made and other aspects of our service before the need arises, we offer tours of our facility to interested community groups. If we can be of assistance to you or your community group, please let us know. We welcome the opportunity to be of service.
