Every year, there is an increase in the number of Canadians who opt for cremation as their preferred choice. Many are finding the simpler and less costly alternative of cremation, a more attractive option. To make your farewell as meaningful and personal as a traditional burial, you can chose from the following options:
Choice of Resting Place
Urns can be buried or kept in either a columbarium, a mausoleum, an outdoor or indoor niche, or in a special urn garden.
Chapel or Graveside Service
