About Cheshire Family Funeral Home

Director/Owner P.M. Tristan McKenna was born and raised in Scotland; his family emigrated to the United States when he was a young boy. He has served the death care industry since 1983. He was first exposed to his vocation as a U.S. Navy Corpsman assigned to the Fleet Marine Force stationed with the 26th Marine Amphibious Unit, 2nd Marine Division, Camp LeJeune N.C. He attained the rank of 2nd class petty officer prior to his honorable discharge from enlisted service following a military accident. Being with the Marines was a fulfilling and memorable time for him. He then became an apprentice funeral director/embalmer and after four years attended Mortuary College in Troy, New York, graduating in 1996. Tristan is fully licensed in New Hampshire and Vermont.

After working in and for funeral homes for many years, he and his wife Lisa decided to open a Crematory in Troy, NH. Lisa owns the crematory and Tristan serves as Operations Manager. Since the opening of the crematory in 2001, Tristan has wanted to open a funeral home and offer traditional as well as cremation services to the people of Cheshire County. The name Cheshire Family Funeral Home speaks to the McKenna's desire to reach and serve the many diverse members of the community, reinforcing their commitment to excellence and compassion as a family owned and operated establishment. Our services will be designed on a per case basis, to meet the needs of the individual families. With the needs of individuals and families changing regarding death care, diversity and selection are paramount. Tristan believes in an open, honest structure of business and communication, allowing a la carte decision making and pricing. He truly believes this model creates novelty and exceptional service opportunities for each family he serves.
