For Immediate Release, Coventry, RI:

Gorton-Menard Funeral Home and Cremation Services is currently in the process of installing a new state-of-the-art Cremation Center and Family Gathering and Witness Room at their Washington Street, location, in Coventry, RI. The funeral home owners have begun this extensive renovation of the facilities in order to better serve their client families. In addition to the Cremation Center, will be a large modern landscaped parking lot that holds up to 100 vehicles comfortably for large visitations and funerals.

“Cremation is becoming an ever more popular alternative to traditional burial for a wide variety of reasons,” states Alfred Menard, owner and funeral director. “The installation of a new state-of-the art cremation unit means that all facets of the cremation process will take place on location - at the funeral home, thereby assuring our client families of complete accountability and exacting standards throughout the cremation process”, Menard said. “This also allows for families to be present during the cremation process if they should desire, a request that is prevalent in many religions and cultures. We adhere to the highest industry standards; the Cremation Center at Gorton-Menard Funeral Home and Cremation Services offers families that choose cremation many options. From a full committal service in our chapel to a small family gathering in our witness room, we strive to meet our community’s needs. The Cremation Services and Witness Room will be available to all families in the RI, MA and CT areas.”

Menard and his wife Laura purchased the funeral home in 2001 and have continued to update the facilities over the years. The most recent renovations include a large addition in 2007 comprised of a parlor that comfortably seats over 100 people, state of the art offices, a children’s playroom for families comfort, and a 4-car carport at the main entrance - all ADA accessible,

With cremation becoming a more popular choice in our area, families have many questions. Menard and Funeral Home Manager, Steven DiLorenzo are available to show the Cremation Center and Witness Room to anyone who would like a tour of the facilities and answer any questions they may have.

The funeral home is located at 721 Washington Street, Coventry, RI. They can also be reached at 401-821-7306 or emailed at info@gortonmenardfuneralhome.com for more information.
