Nicholls Funeral Home can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
When it comes to the burial of your loved one, there is no right or wrong choice. Simple and affordable, cremation is becoming a more practiced approach throughout Canada. We will guide you through the process and ensure that your goodbye is meaningful and dignified. The options available to you with a cremation service are plentiful. In fact, in many ways you have more options than a traditional burial.
Final Resting Place Options
Beyond choosing the actual urn, the decision of where to place the urn is an important one. A traditional burial plot is an option. Others choose an indoor or outdoor niche or columbarium. Mausoleums and special gardens designed specifically for memorializing urns are also available.
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.
Public Viewings and Visitations
Closure is important. And for many, the final viewing and visitations represent a way to say that last goodbye and come to terms with their own grief. Prior to cremation, you may still opt to have viewings, and perhaps even a tribute in the form of a reception for friends and family.

Holding the memories close to you, our quality collection of keepsakes, jewelry, record packages and urns will help keep your loved with you forever.

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.
