Services

Since the beginning of human history, funerals have helped families grieve and heal when a loved one passes. Today, thanks to improved health care and longer lifespans, many people are inexperienced with funerals. So the difficult task of planning a funeral for someone we love can be even more stressful. At Downing & Lahey, we're committed to making it easier for you to plan a personalized service that celebrates the life of your loved one in a way that is especially meaningful. We welcome both custom ceremonies and traditional funerals, and will work with you to design a fitting tribute. We have experience planning services for people of all faiths, and particular expertise in both Catholic and Jewish funeral traditions.

People often take great comfort in ceremony. To help you determine what elements of the traditional funeral are most appropriate for your situation, it is important to understand the benefits of each.
