Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection and appreciation. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful memorial and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.
Learn the legacy.
Generations of families have trusted Brooklawn Memorial Park and Crematory when memorializing their loved ones. It’s a tradition that started decades ago with Brooklawn’s park superintendent, Maurice Tanguay. Tanguay had a lot of ideas about how Brooklawn should be run, how it should look, and the best way to honor the people who came there.
David Morgan, who previously owned and managed the park for many years through 2021, also grew up in the tradition of caring for families. His father, William Morgan, was the Executive Vice President of one of the largest private cemeteries in Massachusetts, where David worked as a teenager. In the early 70s, William came to Brooklawn as business manager and worked with the Tanguay's to expand Brooklawn’s facilities and services.
For more than four decades, the Tanguay's and Morgan's have worked together for Maine’s families. It’s a tradition that continues today— with David, Todd Jensen (Maurice's son-in-law) the new Park Superintendent, all the Tanguay family who work at Brooklawn, and the rest of the staff who are considered family too. Brooklawn is a family place with a family tradition.
Today, Brooklawn Memorial Park is a proud member of the Milestone Cemetery and Crematory family. The park is managed by highly competent, long time employees. Todd Jensen is Brooklawn’s Superintendent. Jamie Guptil is the Crematory Manager.
