Signature Services


We often hear people speak as though all funeral and cremation providers are the same.

We respectfully disagree.

We work to foster a culture that continually challenges our team to find ways to better serve our client families. We provide a collection of unique practices combined with exclusive options as part of our Signature Services. It is our hope that these offerings help to create a memorable tribute while providing cherished memories.

If you would like to incorporate any of these offerings or have questions as to what they entail, please ask your funeral director.



PARTING STONES

After the cremation, remains are solidified into stone. A natural, solid option cleaner and more manageable than cremains. The solidification process for an adult returns the full amount of remains as an average of 40-60 solids depending on the amount of ash provided. The appearance of each set will vary naturally in shape, color, and texture making each collection of solidified remains uniquely beautiful. Click here to learn more.

We were the first provider in New England to offer this service.
