Funeral Services in Windsor, Nova Scotia
A funeral is a timeless tradition that has given families a chance to say goodbye for thousands of years. It is a place where a special life can be honoured, their values and accomplishments can be celebrated, and a place where family can begin to heal. There is so much more a funeral provides than simply a eulogy and biblical quotes; it is a way to commemorate a life and all those it touched.
Say More Than Just Goodbye
Choosing how to remember your loved one is a unique process, and our planning professionals can help you create a one-of-a-kind funeral service. Whether you choose a traditional style, or want to honour them in a more creative and contemporary way, we can help. Often, a visitation period proceeds the service. Receiving family and friends through a visitation provides support, and allows others to express their love and concern for you. Our quiet visitation rooms provide a soothing atmosphere for attendees.
Planning a Service and Reception
We feature a large chapel. But you are not limited to classic, clergy-led services. We can help you plan a memorial that reflects an individual’s talents and interests, from cooking to painting, motorcycles to movies. The choices are endless.
As you personalize the funeral, some things to consider include:
- Attributes or passions of the person who died that you want to be sure to honour
- Memories to share
- Important people to include
- Person to lead the ceremony
- Others who might want to speak or share memories
- Music ideas for the visitation and ceremony
- Readings for the ceremony
After the funeral, a reception is a time for family and friends to reflect, laugh, and cry together over refreshments or a meal. We offer a lounge for intimate gatherings, and a reception room equipped with full kitchen facilities, along with ample parking for your guests.
Sharing Memories is our exclusive memorial site, available free of charge. It offers friends and family from around the world the chance to honour their loved one with photos, messages, quotes, and more. Your loved one’s profile will be accessible always, meaning you can visit and reminisce anytime and anywhere.
