About

Four families, four funeral homes and more than 100 years serving families in Lewiston. That’s what stands behind today's Pinette Dillingham & Lynch Funeral Home and Cremation Services. From a beautiful new location on Alfred A. Plourde Parkway in Lewiston, we serve families from all over Androscoggin County with attention to detail like none other. As your friends and neighbors, we understand this community, and our commitment to care and excellence is unmatched.

Warm and inviting, our modern funeral home is also unlike any other. With a chapel that holds more than 250 guests and a parking lot with room for more than 100 cars, we can accommodate big groups or intimate services.

Personalized memorials and celebrations of life

At Pinette Dillingham & Lynch Funeral Home and Cremation Services, we believe that every service should be as unique as the life lived. Our associates capture the essence of your loved one to create an event that honors your special person and gives friends and family a chance to come together and remember.

Perhaps it’s a barbecue in honor of the pit master, complete with bottles of homemade sauce for guests to take home. Maybe it’s a garden-themed party for a beloved green thumb. Or perhaps it’s a quiet outdoor scattering ceremony with the closest family and friends. No matter your wish, no matter the detail, we handle it all.

Whether you want to arrange a traditional funeral service or modern celebration of life, large reception or small gathering, we will work with you one-on-one to ensure your needs and budget are met. From floral arrangements to music selections, decor, catering and more, we guide you through your choices with care.

Cremation in Lewiston

Signature Dedication at Palm Cheyenne Mortuary

Pinette Dillingham & Lynch Funeral Home and Cremation Services specializes in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our all-inclusive pricing options. 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 all the choices:

  • 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.

There are many cremation providers from which to choose. Here’s what you can expect when you choose Pinette Dillingham & Lynch for your loved one’s cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our identification pendant and custody-of-care program help safeguard the identification of your loved one.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. Once your loved one is in the care of a Dignity Memorial® provider or trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematorium operators in Maine are licensed and certified by the Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Unless there are special circumstances and your family has requested otherwise, only one person at a time is cremated. Additionally, the crematorium chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

Veterans funerals and burials

21 Homeless Veteran Burials

We deeply appreciate those who have sacrificed for our freedoms and feel privileged to honor veterans and their families in need of funeral, cremation and burial services. Our experienced funeral directors are dedicated to ensuring that every veteran is honored in a manner befitting their service and giving their families the support they need.

Grief support and aftercare

The loss of a loved one can be devastating, and many people don’t know where to turn or how to cope. We’re here to help you during difficult times—you aren’t alone. Though the experience of grief can be very isolating, the articles in our grief library can make a difference in your day-to-day life, and families who plan services with us get access to our 24-hour Compassion Helpline (services provided by Charles Nechtem Associates) for up to 13 months after a service.

Funeral and burial planning in advance

In addition to assisting with an immediate need, Pinette Dillingham & Lynch Funeral Home and Cremation Services works with families to make final arrangements in advance. When you plan ahead, you relieve your family from financial and emotional burdens while ensuring your wishes are fulfilled. We offer in-person and virtual consultations, as well as a free Personal Planning Guide.

Lean on us

Our caring and dedicated team of experienced professionals is mindful of every need, respectful of every wish and watchful of every detail. They provide exceptional, compassionate service at one of life’s most difficult times. We consider it a great responsibility when families entrust to us the care of their loved ones. As part of the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers, Pinette Dillingham & Lynch Funeral Home and Cremation Services offers benefits you won’t find anywhere else.

We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please reach out, day or night, if we may assist with funeral, cremation or burial arrangements in Lewiston. Contact us
