Mourning Glory Team

Mourning Glory is able to offer funeral services at a lower cost because its overhead is low.  Services are held out of churches, halls, or other suitable facilities which are meaningful to the family.  Windsor Chapel is also available for funeral services or gatherings. Another cost saving factor is that Mourning Glory does not lease or own a fleet of limousines, as only 5% of the families they have served have requested this service.  However, limousines can be rented in cases where they are desired.  Instead of limousines, Mourning Glory offers the use of a shuttle bus for family and or pallbearers, or the rental of city buses which makes travel to and from the cemetery much easier, especially in cold weather.  Mourning Glory operates with white coaches and a white lead car.
