Our beautiful foyer can be used to receive guests as well as for overflow for larger services. Attending a service can be a difficult time for some. Our foyer is a peaceful space to get away from the service or viewing for a moment. Overlooking the Haledon Reservoir, it offers a beautiful view that many like to reflect over and share stories of the deceased.
Our large chapel on the north side was completed in 2015 and is one of the largest chapels in Franklin Lakes and the surrounding areas. The chapel was designed to provide families with a comfortable setting to honor their loved one’s legacy. It is equipped with modern technologies and beautiful décor.
The north chapel can seat up to 125 people comfortably with standing room available for larger services. The overflow room outside is equipped with televisions for additional people to watch the service. Inside of the chapel, there are four large-screen televisions. This chapel is capable of video recording services as well. Many families choose to have the service recorded so friends and families who are unable to attend can watch later. If you are holding a service with a large number of friends and family attending, the north chapel is a beautiful and spacious option.
Our beautiful south chapel is smaller, seating up to 75 people plus standing room if necessary. Like our north chapel, it features an overflow room with televisions for additional guests. Inside of the chapel: beautiful décor, comfortable seating, and two large screen televisions. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer video recording services in this chapel.
The south chapel is an excellent option for smaller services and offers families a quiet and intimate setting to offer condolences and say goodbye to a loved one.
Our selections room features some of our most popular choices for caskets and cremation urns. We offer a selection of beautiful wooden caskets constructed from high-quality materials. Our beautiful cremation urns come in a range of designs and styles. In our selections room, you can also select memorial stationery, keepsakes, and memorial jewelry.
