The House of Tranquillity Funeral Home Ltd. was established in 1995 and incorporated by the Registrar of Companies now the Companies Office of Jamaica on the 21st March 1995 .
The Company was founded by Joseph Michael and Opal Veronica Cornwall. At a very young age Joseph was interested in providing final care services for the deceased. It is with this in mind that he sought part-time employment with Madden’s Funeral Home. It was here where he learned both the Administrative and Mortuary Management Skills.
He has honed these skills through several courses in the United States of America and Puerto Rico, where he participated in Embalming and Operation of a Crematorium.
He was employed in the Government Service form 1972-1993. Until he opted for early retirement. While in the Government Service he excelled in all Educational Courses assigned to him. His favourites included Accounting, Systems and Procedures Management and Commercial Law.
He is no novice to the industry, as he co-founded the House of Serenity Funeral Home in 1982, which was placed under court liquidation in 1995.
He boasts over Forty (40) years of experience in the Funeral Industry. He is by no means selfish, having assisted former workers as well as Business Associates in starting their own Funeral home. The Company’s Mission Statement is “to provide Dignified Professional Services in a Modern State of the Art Facility at the most affordable cost.”
While the day to day operations at the House of Tranquillity is extremely arduous he still finds time to write letters to the Editor of both daily Gleaner and the Jamaica Observer on a wide range of topics affecting Jamaica and the World. He is also an event planner always managing to incorporate his love for Old hits Music and domino playing into all of his functions.
