The Serenity Family Witness Room

Rushlow-Iacoi Funeral Home and Crematory and Gorton-Menard Funeral Home and Crematory have provided our community with the best quality staff, facilities and equipment possible. The Serenity Cremation Center specifically provides quality and unique cremation services with a small family gathering / witness room which is available prior to the cremation. A small private memorial service may also be held there. We felt it was important to provide a dignified and comfortable facilities.

Our crematory is located at Gorton - Menard Funeral Home & Crematory, Coventry, RI. 

“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 Serenity Cremation Center 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.”
