Our History and Caretaker ~ Fuller Service Company
Who we are
The cemeteries, with interments dating back to the 1920’s, have serviced the community in the traditional manner when our relatives arrived to this country and make the communities North of Boston, home. They had their homes, places or worship and jobs all within the community. It made sense that their final resting places would be in the same community.
Solomon Slotnick, a Chelsea resident, purchased the one time cow grazing origonal parcel of land in 1919 and created the Beth Israel Cemetery Corporation of Everett. In order to support his family and make a living, Solomon started to sub divide smaller parcels of the massive 50 plus acres property to other local temples, brotherhoods and organizations representing the vast number of Jews that had settled this area during the early part of the 1900’s. Each group was interested in a way to service their membership and wanted a local cemetery for their dead. After subdividing the parcels, Solomon set up an entity to maintain and service the newly created cemeteries.
Fuller Service Company is the evolution of that maintenance entity and is the caretaker of the cemeteries located on Fuller Street, in Everett. As caretakers, they receive all calls for internment orders, service the burials, clean up the burials, fill sunk graves, loam and seed graves when needed, and maintain the property subject to the restrictions of the owners of the developed and undeveloped lands of the cemetery.
