Step 1: Package Details And Options

Service Package
We have a long history of assisting veterans with the benefits and services that they are entitled to and that they deserve. Our Veterans Service Package offers the families of veterans who proudly served our country the ability to recognize their sacrifice. Our staff is committed to making sure that your family receives all the benefits that are available through the local, state and federal governments. While all the forms that customarily pertain to veterans burial benefits are available on our website, for families that chose our Veterans Package, our knowledgeable counselors will take the time to ensure that every document is completed accurately and that it is submitted to the proper VA or government office.

Our veterans tribute package includes all of the services of our direct cremation package along with the following:
  • A bronze urn with the branch of service insignia
  • Coordination and direction of a graveside service at the Connecticut or Massachusetts State Veterans Cemetery or at a cemetery in our service area
  • A wooden flag case for displaying the flag presented during military honors
  • Scheduling of military honors (if desired), including a firing squad, taps, and folding and presentation of the flag by uniformed US Military personnel
From our military family to yours, we are proud of your service to our country and we are privileged to offer this specially discounted service on behalf of a grateful nation.
