Brooklawn Memorial Park >> Crematory

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, Brooklawn’s owner, also grew up in the tradition of caring for families. His father, William Morgan, owned and operated the largest private cemetery in Massachusetts, where David worked as a teenager. In the early 70s, William came to Brooklawn as business manager and worked with the Tanguays to expand Brooklawn’s facilities and services.


For more than four decades, the Tanguays and Morgans have worked together for Maine’s families. It’s a tradition that continues today— with David, Jeannette Tanguay, Brooklawn’s crematory manager, son-in-law Todd, the new park superintendent, all the Tanguay family who work at Brooklawn, and the rest of the staff who are considered family, too— that Brooklawn is a family place with a family tradition.
