Gately Community Connections 
Newsletter Archive
   The Gately Funeral Home has been serving the families of Melrose and surrounding communities since 1889 in the tradition began by my great-grandfather John Henry Gately. 

   Our community has grown over the years and it is not as easy to stay connected with those whose opinions, information, and counsel we rely on. Gately Community Connections is our quarterly newsletter that we trust will keep us connected and give us opportunities to share information and valuable resources.
    Each newsletter includes a Frequently-Asked Question (FAQ) section intended to inform and clarify a variety of issues that confront people when they begin to consider end-of-life concerns.

    We will be featuring articles by local experts in specialized fields including estate planning, hospice news and information, veterans' affairs and more. We invite you to participate by submitting timely news articles to our Community Bulletin Board. Simply send your news to

Let the healing begin with us.
