Learn About Hamden's Locally Owned and Managed Funeral Service, Beecher & Bennet

By Elisha Neubauer

Losing a loved one can be devastating enough, but planning a funeral so soon afterward can be terrifying for those who are still grieving. You need someone in your corner; someone who will guide you through the process, who understands how difficult this time can be. Beecher & Bennet Funeral Service has been actively serving the community at their most dire time of need since 1894.

"It is a family owned business with three of the four generations currently working on a daily basis," explains Jon Erickson, Funeral Director for Beecher & Bennet Funeral Service. "Families dealing with a loss will always receive assistance from a knowledgeable/caring funeral director." This long-standing, family-owned business takes pride in its ability to offer the community the best in service, facilities, and resources. They aim to relieve some of the stresses of funeral planning by employing only the most genuine and experienced of staff members, offering pre-planning services, and more.

"Although difficult to think about, death is one of life's certainties," affirms Erickson. "Planning ahead for yourself will take the burden off of your loved ones when the time comes, allowing the grieving process to run its proper course." Erickson explains that this is a simple process, given the staff's awareness and attention to detail. "The staff at Beecher & Bennet is knowledgeable in all pre-planning options and assists families on a daily basis by figuring out which is best for each individual."

For some families, the expense of an intricate funeral may be too burdensome to think about. However, Erickson explains that there are options, regardless of finances. "We understand that every family's financial situation is different," he tells us. "We are here to help no matter what." The point Erickson stressed during our conversation was that there isn't a correlation between the cost of the service and the impact of the tribute. "The most important thing is honoring your loved one in a meaningful/respectful way."

Beecher & Bennet Funeral Services is now available in three convenient locations: Hamden, Meriden, and West Haven. They have remained locally owned and operated, and employ a full time staff of licensed caregivers. They understand the difficulty of the service, and therefore offer flexibility in planning and pre-arrangement counseling; and, of course, competitive pricing, so you never have to worry about the bottom line.

"The staff at Beecher & Bennett takes pride in having the ability to serve its community by helping people through one of the most difficult life experiences," Erickson states. "Beecher & Bennett has always helped families in need and will continue to do so."
