There are many functions that a funeral fulfills: it honours a unique life; it gives friends and family a chance to say goodbye, and it provides a place where the healing process can begin. For thousands of years, the funeral has played an important role in providing consolation during a time of loss and mourning.
Say More Than Just Goodbye
Traditional or contemporary, the funeral service can be tailored to your faith, taste and budget. Whether planning for yourself or a loved one, our professionals will help you design a memorial service as unique as the person being honoured.
A visitation often precedes the service. Our quiet visitation rooms allow family and friends to pay their final respects in peaceful and serene surroundings.
Planning a Service and Reception
We feature an exquisitely decorated chapel. But you are not limited to classic, clergy-led services. We can help you plan a memorial that reflects an individual’s talents and interests, from cooking to painting, motorcycles to movies. The choices are endless.
Here are some things to think about which will help tailor the funeral to the person being celebrated:
- Specific interests or qualities about the deceased that you feel are important to remember
- Anecdotes and stories
- People you want to be sure to include
- Clergy or appropriate speaker to lead the service
- People who may also want to speak at the service
- Songs and music to be played at the service and other events (visitation, reception)
- Poems, passages and other readings for the service
A warm and welcoming reception after the funeral provides a place for friends and family to gather and talk over a meal or refreshments. We offer a large reception room, with full kitchen and catering facilities.
Available free of charge, our exclusive online memorial site Sharing Memories provides the unique opportunity to honour your loved one with a personal tribute of words, pictures, video and more. Unlike traditional forms of memorial, your loved one's on-line profile can stay current and accessible always, from anywhere.
