This month, Allen Cole is featured in the Chelsea Library’s “Men of Chelsea” Calendar. No, the men are NOT shown in skimpy swimwear - each Chelsea Man was asked to choose a favorite book. Allen’s book is “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis. It is a great book, and if you would like to read it, we would like to offer you a free copy to borrow or keep. Just call the funeral home (475-1551) and we will hold a copy with your name on it so you can pick it up at your convenience.
Cole Funeral Chapel is a family-owned funeral home committed to caring for your family. An independent funeral home in Chelsea, Michigan, our mission is to meet your needs whatever they may be. We provide a wide range of services, from sitting down with you to discuss future needs to grief counseling after the death of a loved one.
Our funeral home was founded in 1898, and was purchased by Donald Cole in 1977. His son, Allen, bought the funeral home from his father in 1999, continuing the tradition of service to the Chelsea area.
We offer choices in cremation service, including:
- direct cremation with no services
- cremation followed by a memorial service or visitation time
- a complete viewing and funeral followed by cremation
We want to help your family choose services that fit your needs. We will walk you through your options without pressuring you, and we will help you to compare the costs of different options. Regardless of your choice, we will treat your loved one with respect, we will help you write and place obituaries, we will obtain death certificates promptly, and help you chose the final resting place for your loved one's ashes. We will not try to sell you services or merchandise you do not need.
A cemetery marker is not just a way to mark the grave, but it can tell the story of that person's life. We enjoy helping you design a special cemetery marker to remember your loved ones. We also recommend families place a stone on their graves before it is needed, so you can plan your design together. We work hard to create quality monuments for the families we serve, and offer many choices, and easy ways to personalize the marker. Let us make a design and give you an estimate with no obligation.
