Every day, families come to Puritan Lawn to visit loved ones who have been laid to rest. Many have come to reminisce, connect with the past, or to just spend time in the presence of their friend or loved one no longer with them. We also regularly see family or friends who were not able to say a final goodbye at the come by at a later time and say their goodbyes or to express important things that may have previously been unsaid.
Many tell us that these visits to our beautiful 140 acre grounds in Peabody bring an unexpected amount of comfort and closure. There’s healing that takes place – a sense of moving on in life while carrying meaningful memories with you.
We cannot overstate the importance of the location of a final resting place. After all, this is the place where future generations will visit. This is where they will sit to mourn, remember, and celebrate the life that once was.

You want to be sure the location is comfortable, beautiful, convenient, well taken care of and enduring. Because Puritan Lawn offers distinctive selections, you also want to be sure that your choice is a perfect fit for your needs and wishes.
