We will match the price of other local cremation providers should you find one offering a lower price. Simply bring a print out of their pricing and we will match it. For as little as $1,495.00 your loved one can be cremated in our good loving care.  

The following charges with the exception of the funeral home service charge and Crematory charge are required by the State of Vermont.  These fees for permits are not retained by the funeral home but are the direct cost of such permits.  We make it convenient for the family to pay one sum instead of writing various small checks for these necessary items.

Obituary Notices:
We will provide the assistance needed to help you prepare your notice and send it to the newspaper of your choice. You will be responsible for the publishing fee. Each newspaper has a different pricing system. Fees are typically based upon how lengthy your notice is and whether you submit a photo to appear with the notice. Many families choose to pay for a short notice in the newspaper and link to a full notice on the website. This can offer significant savings.

This life tribute to your loved one will be permanently located on our parent company website at Friends and family may leave condolences and share stories. Your tribute may also be shared to your Facebook or Twitter account. This tribute is a beautiful place to keep your memories alive.
