Atlantic Funeral Home – Sackville can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
Each year, more Canadians are selecting cremation as their preferred option. While the reasons may vary, elaborate burials are not as popular as they once were. Cremation is an option that many are choosing as it offers a meaningful expression of remembrance in a simple way. Many people also find this a more affordable option.
You can select from a variety of options to make your farewell as meaningful and personal as a traditional burial.
You can select to have your urn buried, or kept in a mausoleum, a columbarium, an indoor or outdoor niche or a special garden for urns.
Service in a Chapel or Graveside
This option is best suited for those who prefer what is offered in a traditional burial and would like to be cremated.
Many people value the opportunity to say a final goodbye and find viewings and visitations to be important in the grieving process. This option can be included as part of your tribute even if your loved one is cremated. You can also include, as part of your memorial plans, a reception for family and friends.
