Cremation Services

Simple and Meaningful Choices

Cremation With Remembrance

Dodsworth & Brown Funeral Home –  Ancaster Chapel can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.

Every year, more Canadians are choosing cremation. Cremation provides you and your family with a simple, yet meaningful way to pay your final respects. Cremation may also be more affordable than a traditional burial. However, there are many options to make your final goodbye personal and evocative.

Final Resting Place Options

Depending on your preferences, the urn can be buried, or placed in an indoor/outdoor niche, mausoleum, columbarium, or special urn garden.

Chapel or Graveside Service

You still may want to pay your final respects to your loved one with a chapel or a graveside service just like you would during a traditional funeral.

Public Viewings and Visitations

Viewings and visitations can be an important part of the grieving process as it provides loved ones a final chance to say goodbye. And even with cremation, you can also choose to hold a reception for friends and family.

Urns and Keepsakes

A wide selection of quality cremation urns are available. As well, we offer lovely cremations mementos, including jewelry, keepsake urns and memorial record packages, to help you remember and cherish your loved one’s memory.

What is cremation and what choices can be made?
