Cremation With Remembrance
Mountain View Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home features the convenience and flexibility of a crematorium on site, which can accommodate special witnessing rites.
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
The type of urn you choose as well as its final resting place are important decisions. With a quality collection of cremation products, we can help you capture the spirit and essence of your loved one. And when it comes to the final resting place, there are numerous options available. From a special interior or exterior niche, to a more traditional mausoleum, burial plot or columbarium, you can choose a resting place that brings you comfort.
Chapel and Graveside Services
For those who find solace in a more traditional funeral, even with cremation you can still opt to have chapel and graveside services honouring your loved one.
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.
Keepsakes and Urns
Holding the memories close to you, our quality collection of keepsakes, jewelry, record packages and urns will help keep your loved with you forever.

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.
