James Benedict offers many different services. Our training and experience have prepared us to help, to reassure, and to understand when a family is faced with the loss of a loved one. We are here to replace confusion with calm, doubts with certainty, and questions with answers. Here, one finds a quiet gentleness in a relaxed atmosphere of respect, efficiency, and trust. We believe your service choice is a personal decision. At James Benedict we explain and guide you through the options available, then allow you to make your own decisions.

However, in arranging a burial or cremation service, we understand that every family is different, every life to be celebrated is unique. Many factors help determine whether a service will become simple or elaborate, private or public, and even religious or secular (non-religious). As respected and experienced Funeral Directors, we are used to solving the big questions.
