Welcome! The Funeral Consumers Alliance of Western Massachusetts (FCAWM) is a non-sectarian, not-for-profit membership organization whose mission is to promote and protect a consumer's right to choose meaningful, dignified, and affordable final arrangements.
We are independent of the funeral industry. We aim to provide neutral, reliable information about your rights and options for funeral or memorial services, care of the body, and disposition of human remains (including burial, cremation or donation). We are all volunteers.
We hope you will find the information you seek about how you can choose the options you want. After exploring our website, please let us know if there is information you were unable to find, questions you have, or suggestions for improving this website. For what's NEW: see News & Events section.
