Cremation Services

Simple and Meaningful Choices

Cremation With Remembrance

McDougall & Brown Funeral Home – Scarborough Chapel can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.

Canadians are increasingly opting for cremation over traditional burial. It can be a less expensive and simpler choice than an elaborate burial. But choosing cremation does not mean you can’t say goodbye in a respectful and meaningful way. In fact, there are a wide variety of choices available to pay tribute to your loved one.

Final Resting Place Options

Cremation urns can be placed in an indoor or outdoor niche columbarium or mausoleum. We also offer many burial options, including beautifully kept urn gardens.

Chapel or Graveside Service

Even when cremation is chosen, you can have a traditional funeral service to say goodbye and celebrate your loved one’s life. This can happen before the cremation, or afterward if you prefer to bury or place the urn during the ceremony.

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

We provide a collection of keepsake urns, jewelry, and memorial record packages to ensure that your loved one’s memory remains with you every day.

What is cremation and what choices can be made?

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.
