Our History

11 Years of Service

McClam Funeral Home has been operating since April 2000 with the first location in New Britain, CT. We relocated to the City of New Haven in August 2001. The Lord have given us a gift of caring, compassion and warmth. As children at the tender age of 7 we knew then that our lives would be for the services of God and his people. We always knew that we would be in the Funeral Service field. When someone looses a loved one the first thing that they need is someone they can trust. A funeral home that treats everyone with dignity and respect will always do what's best for the families, and hold up a high standard of professionalism. That's who we are here at McClam.

McIntosh, Business Advisor Gerald Clark, Account Melvin Miller, Pastor Martha Green and St. Mary's Church Family the first family we served, Rev.
