At North Haven Funeral Home, we pride ourselves on our ability
to personalize and individualize each funeral service so that
it is a truly memorable experience and a fitting tribute. We offer
many unique and special services that set us apart from other
funeral homes. The way a person is remembered is as unique as
the person him/herself. We listen carefully to what your wishes
are and pay attention to every detail as we carry them out. Burial
or entombments in a mausoleum are just a couple of the choices
available. Our prices vary to reflect the charges for the services
and merchandise that you select.
Some families choose cremation over traditional burial. Cremation,
like burial, is a manner of disposition and your choice of services
before or after cremation is extensive. We are extremely flexible
and will do whatever we can to fulfill your wishes.
