Our families have been serving the Marlborough community for four generations. We are known for our commitment to the community through active involvement in local organizations. We take pride in caring for our families during their time of need and continued support for years to come. We are known for our compassionate approach of “local people helping local people”, a philosophy that has served the community well and gives us a unique understanding of what is most important. A philosophy of care, compassion and professionalism.
In 2019, the Short family purchased John P. Rowe Funeral Home, Inc., a family- owned and operated business since 1921. William Short and John Rowe, Sr. started their respective funeral homes and set a high standard for their children to live and work up to. We work every day to live up to those standards. We wanted our families and friends to know that Short & Rowe Funeral Home will continue to meet their needs with high quality service.
