Our Burial Services

Since 1860, we have been caring for families and their deceased loved ones. We promise everyone we serve :

  • 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 burial will not be delayed.
  • Step-by-Step Assistance. We will accompany you through the process from service details, to casket and vault selection, to cemetery and transportation requirements.
  • Respectful care of the deceased. Your loved one will be attended to by licensed funeral directors and professional staff, trained to provide both compassionate care for the deceased and conscientious attention to detail throughout the burial process.

We have the deepest respect for traditional burial practices and offer several affordable burial service options, each of which can be modified to meet your needs:

  • Traditional. A service followed by adjournment to the cemetery for burial. A variety of options are presented under Memorialization Service.
  • Graveside service. Service at the burial site led by a minister or celebrant and attended by family and friends.
  • Simple burial. Attended only by a member of our staff to oversee the interment.

Included with every Jordan-Fernald burial, if desired, is:

  • Preparation and submission of an obituary (newspaper fees 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.
  • Temporary grave marker
  • Memorial Candle

We have years of experience serving families, so we understand and respect your decisions. If you are considering burial services for yourself or a loved one, we encourage you to contact us to discuss the services we offer and to explore burial 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.
