Highland Hills Funeral Home & Cemetery features the convenience and flexibility of an on-site crematorium, with comfortable facilities for witnessing.
In Canada, the popularity of cremation is steadily increasing. While cremation can be a simpler and more affordable option than a traditional burial, it still provides a meaningful way to say your final goodbye.
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
For many families, viewings and visitations are an important part of the grieving process. And you can also choose to hold a reception, where friends and family can gather to share refreshments and reminisce.
Urns and Keepsakes
Memorial keepsakes provide a lovely way to keep their memory alive. Our quality cremation products include cremation and keepsake urns, jewelry and memorial record packages.

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.
