Conte - Giamberardino Funeral Home provides personalized and meaningful services to meet the needs of every family we serve. Though not a complete list of services in which we provide, the following are services available: Chapel, Church, Graveside, and Memorial. As you decide which type of service is right for you or your loved one, consider the following:
Does your religious or faith tradition impact your decision?
Will your family (or those involved in the decision) be in agreement with your decision?
What is your budget?
Do you have time constraints that will impact when the funeral or memorial service will be held?
Traditional Services or Cremation, many of the same decisions will need to be made. Most families choose to have a service of some type to celebrate the life of their loved one. Whether traditional or a memorial service, a gathering permits loved ones and friends to grieve with others, to share memories and to begin the healing process. Services may be public or private and as simple or elaborate as a family desires. Burial options also vary, including in-ground, mausoleum, or private family estates. Families have many opportunities to personalize the service they choose to reflect the life of their loved one. Some choices you will have include:
Will you choose a traditional funeral service with visitation and service? There is also the option of visitation with or without a funeral service prior to cremation.
Options to consider while planning personal tributes could be photos, personal memorabilia, a video and choice of flowers?
What type of visitation arrangements would be appropriate for your family? Who will celebrate the service?
Where will your loved one be laid to rest? If cremation is chosen, what kind of urn or container would you like for your loved one's final remains?
The decisions you make to honor the life of your loved one are personal, and the professional staff at Conte - Giamberardino will be there to help you through the decision process.

We offer a wide variety of items to fit every budget and family preference. In collaboration with your Funeral Director you will be guided through the selection process, helping you to make a choice that will honor your loved one.
There are a variety of casket choices. Traditionally, caskets have been made out of hardwood, such as Mohogany, Cherry, Oak, and Maple. Today, we have much broader options, with many families selecting a casket made of steel, stainless steel or a non-corrosive metal such as bronze or copper, or a casket specifically designed for cremation.
Vaults - Outer Burial Containers
Many cemeteries and memorial parks require the use of outer burial containers because it allows for better cemetery maintenance and care. From top-of-the-line copper to durable concrete, your outer burial container options will be discussed at the same time you select a casket or urn.
With cremation service being an option there has been an increase in the variety of urns available for you to choose from. Your Funeral Director will discuss with you the selection available.
