About Capital Funeral Home and Cemetery

Focused on Your Needs

Who We Are and What We Do

Proudly serving Ottawa and the surrounding area since 1953, Capital Funeral Home & Cemetery will help you customize your arrangements, while respecting your faith, taste and budget. You can feel confident putting your trust in our compassionate professionals.

In the midst of the Ottawa Valley, our 75 acres, dotted with mature trees, benches and colourful flower gardens, featuring a soothing pond and fountain, creates a peaceful atmosphere to gather and reminisce. Our Funeral Home, built in 2010, adds the convenience of making all your arrangements at one location.

We are proud to be a part of this community.  Our helpful, dedicated staff are passionate about supporting families, local associations, religious organizations and cultural groups, and we are honoured to host a series of free memorial events throughout the year.
