Many families today are choosing cremation. All funeral homes advertise "cremation services", but don't be fooled! Practically all area funeral homes use common, multiple user, off-site industrial crematories to handle their cremations. Cheshire Family Funeral Home utilizes the services of Tri-State Crematory, owned and operated by Lisa McKenna, wife of CFFH owner Tristan McKenna. This private, close-to-premise crematory ensures you the highest standards of care, comfort and accountability. Being affiliated with an actual crematory operator serving more cremation families every year than the majority of all other area funeral homes, we know all there is to know about cremation, and would like to share that knowledge with you so you can be an informed consumer. Please attend one of our free monthly cremation seminars or, with our "open door" policy, drop by anytime and we would be proud to give you a private tour of our operation and discuss the services of Tri-State Crematory. We are also capable of serving your pet cremation and burial needs. Cheshire Family Funeral Home is proud to offer these equally important services, including pet caskets and cremation urns, and a partnership with Ashfield Pet Crematory. Please call or email us for more information. Signature Services We offer many ways to help families personalize and customize a funeral or memorial service. Personalization not only provides a special way to remember a loved one, it also allows those present to participate in the ceremony. In addition to the Signature Service Items presented below, we welcome the opportunity to discuss other options as well to assist you in creating a truly memorable service. Nearly seven million Americans have pre-arranged their funeral with a trusted funeral service provider. More and more people are recognizing that planning a funeral in advance demonstrates love and consideration toward their family members. It is a thoughtful decision that reduces the stress of indecision and uncertainty when a death occurs. It also gives the person making the arrangements peace of mind that they have taken care of their final wishes in advance of their death.
