Business Description: At Carmon Community Funeral Homes, we pride ourselves on our ability to personalize and individualize each funeral service so that it is a truly memorable experience and a fitting tribute. We offer many unique and special services that set us apart from other funeral homes. The way a person is remembered is as unique as the person him/herself. We listen carefully to what your wishes are and pay attention to every detail as we carry them out. Burial or entombments in a mausoleum are just a couple of the choices available. Our prices vary to reflect the charges for the services and merchandise that you select. Some families choose cremation over traditional burial. At Carmon Funeral Homes, we own and operate our own crematory, Mt. Laurel Crematory, on the premises of our Windsor location. By owning and operating our own crematory, we are more flexible and can be more respectful of your specific beliefs and customs, as the deceased never leaves our care. All of this provides you with additional peace of mind. Cremation, like burial, is a manner of disposition and your choice of services before or after cremation is extensive. Click here if you would like a free copy of our Cremation Options brochure.Mt. Laurel Crematory is available for your inspection. Our knowledgeable staff can assist with any questions or concerns. Planning for the future is something that we do in quite a few areas of our lives. Yet, people are always asking us, “Why would someone preplan their funeral?” Now more than ever, it is important to plan ahead. Preplanning frees the surviving family from making decisions at a difficult time, and provides great peace of mind.Preplanning also allows you to lock in funeral expenses at today’s costs. A complete price list is available upon request. In most situations, funds invested today, in compliance with Connecticut law, will be sufficient to cover the total cost of the funeral at the time of need.
