Prospect Memorial Funeral Home opened its door April 15, 2013 with a mission to serve the families of Prospect, Waterbury and surrounding towns with compassionate, individualized funeral care before, during and long after the time of death. Each staff member is dedicated to ensuring every detail of the service is done to client specifications.   Our logo, the Tree of Life, symbolizes our commitment to not only the deceased but also the family and future generations.  Our facility is large, open and ‘homey”, decorated in the colors of nature.  As a new funeral home, Prospect Memorial has established a reputation for excellence, integrity and personalized service.  Feel free to call us for a tour or appointment.
