Family Owned vs. Chains

Family Owned vs. Chains

We are proud to be an independent, family-owned funeral home.

Why a Family-Owned Funeral Home is Better:

A singular focus

All of our attention is devoted to making our funeral home the best it can be in terms of satisfying the needs of our friends and neighbors. We are not distracted nor bound by corporate mandates. We're more flexible. More responsive to your needs.

Personal pride

This is our business. You can be assured we take great personal pride in keeping our facility and our vehicles in top condition. We are also proud of our staff, and regularly pursue continuing education to maintain the highest level of professional services.

A long-term commitment

It is very important to us to not only fill your current needs, but to build a relationship so you will return to us in the future. We have a long-term commitment to this community. When you need us, we'll be here.

A focus on families, not profits

Large corporations answer to shareholders. We answer to you. In our family-owned company, there is no pressure from the corporate headquarters to increase profits. We understand our business will do well when we serve you well.

A knowledge of local customs

Funeral traditions vary greatly around the country. We have a fine appreciation of local customs and expectations. On the other hand, the staff and management assigned to a funeral home by a national company may be from another state or even country. And that can create a lack of awareness and sometimes disappointment when expectations are not met.

An investment in the community

Just as you do, we turn to our neighbors for services and products. Whenever possible, we choose to do business with other family-owned and operated businesses. We also support many local charities, schools and other community efforts.

Special services

Because we are attuned to the needs of the community, we can best provide any special services our families need. From preneed planning to aftercare services, you can count on us to understand and provide for your needs.

A personal relationship

When a family suffers the loss of a loved one, it can be comforting to know your funeral director. We take every opportunity to be involved in our community, and to create the kind of personal relationships that will allow us to provide the individualized, sensitive service your family deserves.

We're part of the Brattleboro community.
We're family.
