Ahern Funeral Home | Hartford, CT | Unionville, CT


When facing the loss of a loved one, the last thing a family needs is uncertainly in knowing where to turn and what to do. Some families know exactly what they want, other families are facing a loss for the first time and don’t know where to turn.

Planning funeral service events, coordinating with clergy, dealing with flowers, restaurants, cemeteries, military honor guards, monuments, burial benefits, etc… No two families are the same and no two funeral services are the same. Our job is to make a difficult time as easy for the family as possible, to organize and coordinate all the separate parties that play a role in the services, and to allow the family to focus and deal strictly with their loss.

A funeral is one of the events we face in life that deserves to go perfectly. The staff at Ahern Funeral Home will do everything we can make sure that it does.

Pre-planning — Why pre-plan?

Peace of Mind

Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making and financial pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice

Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste, and budget. And we at Ahern assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Ahern Funeral Home is providing you with a comprehensive questionnaire for “Your Wishes.” Please complete this and and bring with you when you discuss your decisions with the Ahern professionals.
