There are many advantages to planning a funeral ahead of time. By pre-planning a funeral difficult decisions will not have to be made during a time of grieving and stress. You will be able to visit a potential resting site and have time to decide on and compare options. Thought can be made to whether or not cremation is an option you may want to choose. Your wishes can be put into writing to give your family direction when the time for the funeral comes. Our staff will help you plan so that your family can carry out your wishes.

Online Memorials

We can set up an online memorial for your loved one. Our online memorials provide information for guests about the funeral services and also provide a tribute to your loved one. Guest will be able to gain information about dates, times and locations of funeral services. Guests will also be able to order flowers, make donations and sign a guest book through the memorial. The family will have access to the memorial to add photos to create a photo gallery for their loved one. By providing information to guests about services our online memorials help lessen the load on a family during a difficult time. The memorials also serve to pay tribute to your family's loved one.



Death Certificates

Before the business and legal issues of the estate can be performed, it will be necessary to obtain certified copies of the death certificate. You can order them from the Funeral Director or directly from the registrar of vital statistics in your area. This is usually the Town or City clerks office in the town in which the deceased died. It is always better to order a few more than what you think you may need. Most agencies, insurance companies and banks will only accept actual certified copies of death and not photocopies.



After Care

Sometimes the loss of a loved one can be especially painful. We understand that the grieving process does not end with the funeral. We are here not only to help arrange the funeral, but to help families cope with the loss of their loved one. There are a wide variety of grief resources available and we will help to point you in the right direction and begin the healing process.
