Since 1898, J.H. Williams & Company Funeral Home has served the greater East Providence, Rehoboth, Seekonk, & Dighton communities with the finest in funeral service. Our founder, James Haviland Williams earned the reputation as the finest furnishing Undertaker in the area. He served as Funeral Director, Health Officer for the city of East Providence, and was active in many civic affairs. Mr. Williams gave every call thorough attention and personal supervision given into his charge. We are proud to continue his legacy.
Our historic Victorian home is elegantly appointed with period fireplaces, beautiful woodwork, oil paintings, and antique furnishings. We are proud to only serve one funeral at a time, ensuring our families have the building to themselves without extraneous noise or interruption from dueling calling hours or funeral services.
Unlike modern “cookie cutter” facilities, our Queen Anne Victorian home has maintained all of the original charm and detail since its construction. Our parlors are elegantly appointed with ample seating for relatives & friends. For those who prefer a traditional and beautiful room for funeral services and visitation, look no further than J.H.
