Fair Haven Funeral Home & Cemetery features the convenience and flexibility of an on-site crematorium.
Increasingly, we find that Canadians are choosing cremation. A simple and affordable approach, cremation is a meaningful way to say goodbye that still gives you many of the same options that you would find with a traditional burial. We want to make this as easy as possible for you: guiding you through the choices, we will help you to personalize the moment and create a special memorial for your loved one.
Final Resting Place Options
As with a traditional burial service, there are a number of options in regard to the final resting place. Many choose a niche (inside or outside) that is special to their family. Others go the more traditional route with a burial plot, mausoleum, or columbarium. Whatever your choice, we are here to assist you.
Hold a Service
Additionally, you may wish to hold a chapel or graveside service. Cremation does not limit the ways in which you can memorialize your departed loved one. For those who prefer a traditional funeral, these services are available.
Everyone finds closure and copes with loss in their own way. For many, this means including viewings and visitations in the grieving process. Even with cremation this can still be a fundamental part of your tribute. Before the cremation, through viewings and even a reception, you can honour the life and spirit of your loved one.
Urns and Keepsakes
While the memories remain, you may wish to have a keepsake. We offer an array of cremation products, including keepsake urns, jewelry and memorial record packages, to help you keep your loved one with you forever.
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.
