The Mackie Hazel Memorial Funeral Home, formerly the Ross & Clarke Funeral Home, is the oldest funeral home in St. Kitts and Nevis with over 30 years’ experience in the business. The late McMellan (“Mackie”) A. Hazel acquired the Ross & Clarke Funeral Home in or around the late 1980s and successfully and satisfactorily served the people of St. Kitts and Nevis, and beyond, by providing first class funeral services for over twenty (20) years until his untimely passing on 16th June 2001.
With the support of her children and guidance from some of her late husband’s workers/colleagues, Ursula V. Hazel took on the role and responsibility as funeral director/undertaker of the funeral home. She changed the name to Mackie Hazel Memorial Funeral Home in memory of her husband. Ursula set about transforming the operations of the Funeral Home, adding her own special touch to it. Many people still speak fondly of how caring and compassionate she was in her dealings with them in their time of loss. “She took away the stress of it all and made it easier” they say of Ursula. Unfortunately Ursula lost her battle with breast cancer on April 12th 2016, approximately fifteen (15) years after her husband.
Mark Hazel, the son of Mackie and Ursula Hazel took up the mantle of managing the Mackie Hazel Memorial Funeral Home from November 2014, when Ursula traveled to the United States for treatment. Tragedy struck again when Mark became seriously ill and was hospitalized just six (6) months after his mother, Ursula, died. Mark eventually succumbed to his illness and passed quietly and unexpectedly on 28th November 2016.
Lisa Hazel, the daughter of Mackie and Ursula Hazel after the passing of her brother decided to take on the role of managing the funeral home from September 2016 to March 2017.
I’m pleased to announce that Mackie Hazel Memorial Funeral Home is under new management. We have renovated and are ready to offer you quality service that would provide instant satisfaction.
