Simple and Meaningful Choices

Cremation With Remembrance

Howard & McBride Chapel of Chimes Funeral Home features the convenience and flexibility of an on-site crematorium.

Saying goodbye is certainly difficult. The details associated with an elaborate burial can become overwhelming at times. Perhaps this is not the direction for you and your loved ones. Considering final wishes, costs, and emotions, many people opt for cremation instead. Still allowing for many of the same choices as a burial, cremation is a simpler and yet equally meaningful way to say goodbye.

Final Resting Place Options

The type of urn you choose as well as its final resting place are important decisions. With a quality collection of cremation products, we can help you capture the spirit and essence of your loved one. And when it comes to the final resting place, there are numerous options available. From a special interior or exterior niche, to a more traditional mausoleum, burial plot or columbarium, you can choose a resting place that brings you comfort.

Chapel and Graveside Services

For those who find solace in a more traditional funeral, even with cremation you can still opt to have chapel and graveside services honouring your loved one.

Public Viewings and Visitations

Closure is important. And for many, the final viewing and visitations represent a way to say that last goodbye and come to terms with their own grief. Prior to cremation, you may still opt to have viewings, and perhaps even a tribute in the form of a reception for friends and family.

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.


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.
