Crematory Information

All cremations are performed by Mt. Hope Cemetery in Bangor.  State of Maine law requires that a crematory be on the grounds of a cemetery and operated by a non-profit organization separate from a funeral home.

Many of our competitors own and operate their own crematory, we feel having a third party perform the cremations keeps with the spirit of the law.  Having someone not affiliated with the cremation service means there is a system of checks and balances in place to ensure we are doing everything correctly and the crematory is operating above board.  There is no conflict of interest with our system.

Before calling our competitors, who own their own crematory, can you be sure that everything is as they say it is when no third party is watching what they say they are doing?  

Mt. Hope Cemetery maintains their own website, which can be found at the link below:
