Plans for a new branch of the O’Connor Funeral Home from Dorchester are underway for Milton at the intersection of Randolph Avenue and Reedsdale Road.

Andrew O’Connor of Milton said he bought the house and property at 584 Randolph Ave. in February and has been working with town officials to determine the permits and permissions that are needed from the town before it can open as a funeral home.

“It seems like we’re getting there,” he said.

O’Connor, along with his father Paul O’Connor, are the owners of the John J. O’Connor & Son Funeral Home in Dorchester, which has been a family business since 1959.
