Glenn D. Burlamachi, CFSP, a Concord resident and funeral director, has owned and operated the Concord Funeral HomeSM (Formerly MacRae-Tunnicliffe Funeral Home) since 2004.
Glenn’s professional and business development experience has allowed him to qualify his role as both funeral director and business leader in the greater Concord community. Prior to purchasing the funeral home, Glenn owned and operated several companies before following his life-long goal of becoming a licensed funeral director.
In 2014, Glenn was recognized as Concord’s Business Person of the Year. He is an active member of the Concord Rotary Club, Concord Chamber of Commerce, he holds a seat on the Board of Directors at New England Deaconess Association and recently was appointed to the board at Concord-Carlisle Community Chest. In addition, Glenn completed the educational and training program at the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice to become a Certified Funeral Service Practitioner.

He also earned an Associates Degree in Mortuary Science from FINE Mortuary College in Norwood. Following graduation Glenn worked as an adjunct instructor in both Business and Funeral Directing courses for eight years. In 2013, Glenn purchased the Fowler-Kennedy Funeral Home in Maynard. In 2016 Glenn purchased The Badger Funeral Homes of Littleton and Groton.
Glenn resides in Concord along with his wife Beth and children, Kyle and Caroline.
Responding to the need of local communities, Rothwell N. MacRae opened the MacRae Funeral Home in a storefront on Walden Street in historic Concord, in an area commonly known as “Tuttles-Livery,” in 1936. The following year MacRae relocated the firm to its present-day location at the corner of Belknap & Thoreau Streets.
The original MacRae Funeral Home consisted of two living apartments connected in the middle by a one-story link. The original section was thought to be the “Gate House” for the Colonel Belknap Estate. For twenty years until his retirement, MacRae proudly served the communities of Concord, Carlisle, Lincoln, Sudbury, and the Actons from this humble facility.
In 1958, Edmund H. Tunnicliffe III purchased the firm. Changing the name to the MacRae-Tunnicliffe Funeral Home, he would spend the next seven years expanding and improving the facility to accommodate an ever-growing clientele. To this day, thanks to his hard work and vision, our facility offers a warm and comforting environment to the families we serve.
The Tunnicliffe family operated the home for forty-six years. Edmund IV and his wife Sue joined his father in the day-to-day operation of the business and ultimately, upon the retirement of Edmund III, continued the tradition of excellence started by Rothwell MacRae.
In July 2004, the Tunnicliffe family sold the business to Glenn and Beth Burlamachi. Glenn Burlamachi is a licensed funeral director and embalmer. Glenn and Beth, together with their children Kyle and Caroline reside on the upper level of the funeral home. Concord Funeral HomeSM is proud to be family owned, operated and occupied.
