- About Us
Manchester Funeral Home celebrates diversity. We are proud to serve all cultures, faiths and backgrounds. We are here to help you create a beautiful and memorable tribute for your loved one. We offer funeral, cremation and preplanning services with a variety of options to suit each family’s individual needs.
We are a 24 hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year service. Just like ambulance, police, and fire departments, we are ready to respond to wherever the death has occurred, at home, at a nursing facility, or at a hospital. We can help arrange for different types of services (funeral, memorial, celebration of life) and dispositions (burials, cremations, medical donation). No two families are the same, we strive to accommodate the needs of all. We are here to help you celebrate, remember, and be with you at a difficult time that everyone, ourselves included, will experience.
"Celebrating Life. Celebrating Diversity."
Led by Glenn & Tiffany Blumenstein, the family at Manchester Funeral Home is here to care for you, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. Our staff is chosen not just for their ability and their skills, but for their dedication and drive to care for our neighbors in their time of need.
Co-Owner and CEO
When Glenn started out in the retail business, he quickly realized that not only did he have an almost instinctual understanding of what “customer service” meant to the entire organization, but that he also had a keen sense for operations, and how an entire organization contributed to the full customer experience. While researching a possible entry into rabbinical school, Glenn happened upon the NFDA (National Funeral Directors Association), and it changed the course of his life. He knew instantly that he could take his passion for the customer experience and his strong desire to ease people’s grief and suffering…and help lead a revolution in the funeral business. With almost twenty years of experience in bereavement industry, Glenn & his partner (and wife) Tiffany, are ready to help people plan tributes for their loved ones that are based on what they see as the ideal memorial, not one that’s based on predefined processes that have been around for decades.
Chief Financial Officer & Co-Owner
Tiffany spent her early career with the U.S. Military, working in civil affairs as a primary liaison between the U.S. and localities across Europe and the Middle East. Working with local governments on rebuilding and redeveloping infrastructure for war-torn areas in Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq, Tiffany honed her skills in operations, logistics and civil engineering. She brought those skills with her when she entered the corporate world and was able to bring the unique experiences from her military career into the commercial sector. After meeting Glenn and learning of his passion for the funeral industry, she realized quickly that they both shared a common vision for easing people’s grief. And unlike many in the industry, she doesn’t look backwards to what has been done, she’s looking forward, toward the future and to what is possible. “Dedicated service seems to be lost with many larger corporations that are slow to change…I know we can do it better!”
