The Dignity® Difference

When you choose a Dignity Memorial® provider, you not only receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment, but also the value you deserve from the largest network of funeral homes and cemeteries – including an array of services that is unmatched by any other funeral provider in North America.

 

National Transferability
Should you move more than 75 miles from where your original arrangements were made, your prearranged funeral services are fully transferable and will be honored by any Dignity Memorial provider throughout North America.

 

Bereavement Travel Services
We provide the best available travel options throughout the U.S. and Canada and to many international destinations. On a moment's notice, dedicated travel specialists will seek the best available airfares as well as hotel accommodations and car rentals for all family and friends to attend a funeral, cremation, memorial or graveside service. There is a nominal fee associated with the issuance of an airline ticket.

 

Child / Grandchild Protection Plan
Acknowledging that nothing can ease the pain of losing a child or grandchild, we offer financial relief for those who choose a Dignity Memorial Burial or Cremation Plan. We will provide funeral or cremation services, at no cost, at any Dignity Memorial provider, up to the level of the plan you have selected. The child or grandchild must be less than 21 years of age and unmarried. Not available in Maryland.

 

24-Hour Compassion Helpline®
When traditional support like family or clergy is unavailable, you and your family are invited to use our toll-free Compassion Helpline for up to one year. The Helpline is staffed by professionals who have advanced degrees and are specially trained in grief counseling. 24-Hour Compassion Helpline is provided by Charles Nechtem & Associates, Inc.

 

Aftercare® Planner
This comprehensive estate management guide, with more than 70 pre-written letters, is an invaluable tool in helping finalize business and personal affairs that arise when a death occurs. It provides clear direction and valuable information that may also reduce legal and professional fees. May be purchased separately.

 

Everlasting Memorial®
Encompassing online, print and DVD media, the Everlasting Memorial allows your family to share remembrances of your loved one today and preserve these special memories for generations to come. www.mem.com

 

100% Service Guarantee
Each Dignity Memorial provider is committed to service beyond expectation before, during and after the service. To that end, we offer this guarantee: if there is anything we can do to meet your individual needs, please let us know and we will take care of it immediately.

 

Dignity Memorial Guidance Series
Dignity Memorial providers understand that the loss of a loved one is extremely difficult, as is the accompanying grief. Our bereavement materials were developed to support and comfort those coping with these complex emotions. An extensive collection of booklets, DVDs and CDs offers professional advice and compassionate insight. You can access the Dignity Memorial Guidance Series in our Resource Library on our website at www.dignitymemorial.com.
