Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home features the convenience and flexibility of an on-site crematorium.
Cremation is becoming an increasingly popular choice among Canadians for many different reasons. It provides a simple, meaningful process by which your loved one can be remembered and honoured without an elaborate burial service, which is not to everyone’s preference. It is also an affordable and tasteful option that appeals to many families and is often specifically requested by the person before they pass away.
A cremation service can be just as personal as a traditional burial. The cremation can be tailored to the person you are remembering, and you have many options to choose from.
Choosing a Final Resting Place
Urns can be placed in a variety of respectful and attractive ways. In addition to burial, you may choose to house an urn in an indoor or outdoor niche, mausoleum, columbarium or special urn garden.
Chapel or Graveside Services
Even if you choose cremation, you can incorporate a lovely service, in the same way that a more traditional burial provides.
Say Goodbye to Your Loved One
Public viewings and visitations can be held. This can help family and friends to grieve and say goodbye. You can also include a reception to honour their memory.
You can request a keepsake urn, a piece of jewellery or another one of our beautiful cremation products that will ensure the memories of your loved one will always be with you.
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.
