Dove Release

Dove Release

For many faiths, the dove has been the symbol of the human soul. Watching these elegant birds take to the sky has provided many families a sense of peace.

Balloon Release

Funeral Balloon Release

Many families take comfort in writing special messages to a lost loved one on balloons and releasing them into the sky. Seeing these sentiments rise peacefully brings comfort to many.


Funeral Bagpipes

For many, the stirring sound of bagpipes highlights the reverent and sacred nature of a funeral. Bagpipers’ skills vary considerably, and that is why we select only the very best musicians.

Green Burial

Green Burial

Some families like the idea of a “pure” funeral with everything used being natural or quickly biodegradable. We have the expertise to guide families who choose this.

Canopy of Ceremony

The Canopy of Ceremony will return in 2021.

Ballard-Durand Funeral & Cremation Services has taken the initiative to provide families with a 40 ft. x 50 ft. event canopy to hold traditional funeral services, celebrations of life, wake, or memorial receptions outdoors.

“Our new Canopy of Ceremony gives families the opportunity to celebrate and remember their loved ones in a different environment outside of a place of worship or the funeral home.”
– Owner, Matthew Fiorillo CFSP

Customer Review

Jeanie Caligiuri

Ballard Durand was wonderful. Our Funeral Director Melissa was the best. This was the hardest time of my family's life and they made this wonderful. Every family member or friend that came to my dad's memorial said that Ballard Durand was so serene and calm. They loved the birds in the sitting room too. I want to truly thank Ballard Durand for all they did to make the memorial for my dad an amazing experience.
