Kelly Funeral Home - Barrhaven Chapel can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
For a variety of reasons cremation is becoming a more popular choice for Canadians each year. People are moving away from elaborate burials ceremonies and opting for the simpler approach of cremation. This option offers a meaningful expression of remembrance, while also being a more affordable choice for many. To make your goodbye as personal and meaningful as a traditional burial, you can select from a variety of options:
You can select to have your urn buried, or kept in a mausoleum, a columbarium, an indoor or outdoor niche or a special garden for urns.
Chapel or Graveside Service
If you would like to be cremated but prefer everything that is offered in a traditional burial, this is the ideal selection for you.
Many people value the opportunity to say a final goodbye and find viewings and visitations to be important in the grieving process. This option can be included as part of your tribute even if your loved one is cremated. You can also include, as part of your memorial plans, a reception for family and friends.
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.

- 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.
