Avalon Surrey Funeral Home can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
Whether you’re planning ahead or deciding on the best option for your loved one, cremation services are a simple and affordable approach that can bring you comfort and peace. We are finding that many are choosing cremation for a number of reasons. This approach does not limit your choices and in fact, can give you just as many options as you would have with a more elaborate burial.
Final Resting Place Options
The type of urn you choose as well as its final resting place are important decisions. With a quality collection of cremation products, we can help you capture the spirit and essence of your loved one. And when it comes to the final resting place, there are numerous options available. From a special interior or exterior niche, to a more traditional mausoleum, burial plot or columbarium, you can choose a resting place that brings you comfort.
Chapel and Graveside Services
For those who find solace in a more traditional funeral, even with cremation you can still opt to have chapel and graveside services honouring your loved one.
Public Viewings & Visitations
Finding closure is an important part of the grieving process. Often people find comfort in viewings and visitations, and are better able to say goodbye. Some even choose to have a special reception for friends and family, paying tribute to the memories and special times.
Quality keepsake urns, jewelry and record packages are a meaningful way to keep your loved one’s memory alive.
The Benefits of Planning Ahead
- Savings: Planning early offers cost savings of up to thousands of dollars.
- Reduce the burden on your family: Planning your final arrangements ahead of time reduces the responsibilities on your family at their time of distress.
- Peace of mind: Gain comfort in knowing your plans are ready.
While it’s natural to think of cremation as the only decision to make, it’s really the first of many choices and details to consider. Similar to a traditional service, cremation allows for visitations, as well as funeral or memorial gatherings to celebrate a life well lived. Learn more in our video about cremation.
