Delta Funeral Home & Cremation Centre provides convenient and flexible cremation services.
Each year, the number of Canadians who are choosing cremation as a meaningful expression of remembrance, is increasing. For many, it can be a simpler and more cost effective choice. The following options are available for you to select from to make your goodbye as meaningful and personal as a traditional burial:
Final Resting Place Options
Urns can either be buried or kept in special urn gardens, indoor or outdoor niches, columbariums or mausoleums.
Service in a Chapel or Graveside
This option is best suited for those who prefer what is offered in a traditional burial and would like to be cremated.
A Chance to Say Farewell
To many, viewings and visitations serve as an important part of the grieving process by offering an opportunity for a final farewell. Even if you are cremated, this option can be selected and you can also add a reception for your friends and family as part of your memorial plans.
You can choose from several quality cremation products such as cremation and keepsake urns, jewellery, and memorial record packages to ensure that your loved one’s memory will stay 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.
