Cremation With Remembrance
Avalon Surrey Funeral Home can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
For a variety of reasons cremation is becoming a more popular choice for Canadians each year. People are moving away from elaborate burials ceremonies and opting for the simpler approach of cremation. This option offers a meaningful expression of remembrance, while also being a more affordable choice for many.
To make your goodbye as personal and meaningful as a traditional burial, you can select from a variety of 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
If you would like to be cremated but prefer everything that is offered in a traditional burial, this is the ideal selection for you.
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.
Keep Their Memory Close
Our quality cremation products will help ensure that your loved one’s memory will be everlasting. You can choose from a selection of memorial record packages, jewellery and cremation or keepsake urns.
What is cremation and what choices can be made?
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.
