Our Cremation Services

We are cremation experts who promise each family we serve the highest level of:

  • Courteous, professional service. Our dedicated staff will take care of all details, including prompt filing of required permits and notifications. Accurate completion of these essential documents not only ensures their acceptance by local or state agencies; it guarantees your loved one's cremation will not be delayed.
  • Respectful care of the deceased and timely completion of cremation process. Your loved one will be attended to by certified crematory operators; each of whom has been trained to provide both compassionate care for the deceased, and conscientious attention to detail throughout the cremation process.
  • Safekeeping and prompt return of cremated remains. We know it's important for the families we serve to know their loved one will be coming home as soon as possible. That's why we promise to notify you as soon as their ashes become available, and safeguard their urn until the time you are ready to receive them.

We offer three cremation options; each can be modified to meet your needs:

  • Traditional cremation services. These are much like a traditional funeral. The body of the deceased, placed in a specially-selected cremation casket, is the focal point of the service. A visitation can take place prior to the funeral service and the cycle is completed with the cremation rather than a traditional burial. Once the cremation has occurred, the cremated remains are returned to your family. You can then decide to scatter, bury, or retain the cremated remains in an urn.
  • Memorial gathering after the cremation has taken place. This can occur at any time after the cremation process. The urn is usually on display at the service, which can take place in any setting preferred by the family.
  • Direct cremation. This involves completion of all required paperwork, refrigerated storage of the deceased for the state-required 48-hour holding period, then transportation to the crematory.

If a service to remember a life lived is in your plans, please  take a moment to review our information on Memorialization Services.

Every cremation for which Jordan-Fernald preforms a memorialization service, includes, if desired:

  • Preparation and submission of an obituary (newspaper’s charges extra)
  • A laminated obituary
  • A Memorial DVD
  • An on-line memorial page on the perpetual Book of Memories which includes the obituary  and a copy of  any memorial folders or cards which were used at the service, plus any added condolences, stories, or photos.
  • Memorial Candle

Mt. Hope Cremation Authorization Form

Regardless of which cremation option you select, an authorization form signed by the legal next of kin or duly appointed representative is required before the cremation can take place.  The authorization form from Mount Hope Cemetery Corporation and Crematory, our trusted provider, is available for download.

We have years of experience serving families, so we understand and respect your decisions. If you are considering cremation services for yourself or a loved one, we encourage you to contact us to discuss the cremation services we offer and to explore cremation costs. We are here to help you make an informed decision. Simply call (207) 244-3183 to ask any questions or email us through the Contact Us form.  

We invite you to browse our urn collection for products suitable for burial, scattering or retention.
