Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

History

Green Funeral HomeFounder T. Raymond Green opened the doors to Green Funeral Home at 57 Main Street on October 14, 1935, in his hometown of Danbury, Connecticut. He and his wife, Marion, resided at the funeral home, where they not only worked but also raised their 2 children. In 1946, T. Raymond passed away and Marion obtained her funeral director's license and took full charge of the business.

Marion's legacy of integrity and kindness

Marion ran a successful business and established strong ties with the Portuguese community, who continue to trust Green Funeral Home with the care of their loved ones. Many families who come to us today have fond memories of Marion and speak highly of her integrity and kindness. The Green legacy and values did not end with her. In 1964, her son Thomas R. Green, became a funeral director and began his career continuing the legacy of his parents.

Close ties with the Danbury community

Chapel at Green Funeral HomeTom was born and raised in Danbury, growing up at 57 Main Street. In 1966, he moved with his wife Mary to an apartment on the property and resided there until his growing family required a larger home. Thanks to Tom’s lifelong history in Danbury, his local political and personal involvement in the community, and his success as a reputable and kind business owner, it's hard to find anyone in the town who does not know him. Tom enjoys taking the time to talk to families.

There's a feeling of kinship and history between Tom and the families of Danbury that only a lifetime of dedicated service can create. Green Funeral Home would not have the success and reputation it does today without the solid foundation built by the Green family.

"The loss of a loved one is a sadness that is indescribable and there are a lot of items that need to be gathered for a funeral or service to take place. It was mentally stressful and draining to comprehend exactly what we were doing to make this as perfect as possible. John and his team were exceptional with guidance, patience, and suggestions to
