Campbell's Funeral Home provides flexible and convenient 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
Beyond choosing the actual urn, the decision of where to place the urn is an important one. A traditional burial plot is an option. Others choose an indoor or outdoor niche or columbarium. Mausoleums and special gardens designed specifically for memorializing urns are also available.
Hold a Service
Additionally, you may wish to hold a chapel or graveside service. Cremation does not limit the ways in which you can memorialize your departed loved one. For those who prefer a traditional funeral, these services are available.
Public Viewings and Visitations
Even with cremation, you can still have viewings and visitations and perhaps even a reception in honour of your loved one. In fact, you can choose everything that a traditional funeral or burial offers, while still opting for cremation.
Keepsakes and Urns
Holding the memories close to you, our quality collection of keepsakes, jewelry, record packages and urns will help keep your loved with you forever.
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.
Cremation has been used for thousands of years, and in many different cultures. For example, in England and Japan, cremation is the most widely practiced burial method. As cremation grows in popularity among Canadians, traditional funeral ceremonies are still the preference for many families, allowing family and friends to pay their respects.
