There is a Difference

A DIFFERENCE IN SERVICE, a difference in personalities, a difference in facilities, and certainly a difference between a family owned funeral home and a corporately owned funeral home.

Our family has been operating Prout Funeral Home since 1924. We understand the differences and traditions of the various ethnic and religious communities that make up our wonderful mosaic of neighbors in North Jersey. Whether traditional burial, cremation, entombment or a greener service meets your family’s needs, you can count on us to help you create a funeral service that tells the story of a life.
We respect your right to choose a funeral according to your desires or family customs.

We are also deeply committed to pursuing environmental sustainability. Our funeral home has been solar-powered since the third generation, Bob Prout, had 150 solar panels installed on the roof and the parking lot fence. We view it as our responsibility as a good neighbor and consider it an honor to continue educating others about the importance of energy conservation and pursuing long-term sustainability.

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE. At the most difficult time of your life you deserve professionalism, care and concern – nothing less.

Indeed, the Prout Family is the difference you can count on.
