Forastiere Funeral and Cremation in Springfield is conveniently located off Interstate 91 close to downtown Springfield, serving the greater Springfield and suburban communities since 1905.  Our funeral home has a  peaceful atmosphere for families during visitations, memorial, remembrance gatherings and funeral services.
The original building was a large Victorian home that was well suited to conversion to a stately funeral home. In 1959 an extensive addition was erected doubling the size of the facility to provide additional comfort to families.
