Brownyard Launches New Insurance Program for Cemeteries

Bay Shore, N.Y.—Jan. 24, 2018—Brownyard Group, a program administrator providing specialized insurance coverage for select industry groups, today launched MemorialproTM, a new insurance program with coverage designed for cemeteries and crematories. The program will be written through an A.M. Best Company “A+” rated carrier on an admitted basis.

With Memorialpro, Brownyard has partnered with Regan Agency, Inc. of Babylon, N.Y., a leading insurance broker to the cemetery industry. For more than 35 years, Regan Agency has specialized in providing insurance programs for cemeteries and crematories and brings to the program an in-depth knowledge of the industry and the challenges it faces.

Memorialpro is a comprehensive program, offering General Liability, Professional Liability, Commercial Auto, Property, Inland Marine and Crime & Fidelity coverage. Two additional policies are available to supplement this coverage: Commercial Excess, and a combined Directors & Officers and Employment Practices Liability policy.

“This program has the coverage cemeteries need, providing peace of mind to death care professionals who, in turn, provide peace of mind to families during their most difficult moments,” said Tory Brownyard, president of Brownyard Group. “With Memorialpro we are expanding into a new industry, but it draws on what we’ve learned through our program for landscape professionals.”

Memorialpro will be available through agents and brokers initially in New Jersey and Connecticut and will roll out nationwide later this year.
