Cremation With Remembrance
Pleasantview Funeral Home & Cemetery features the convenience and flexibility of an on-site crematorium.
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.
Final Resting Place Options
Urns can either be buried or kept in special urn gardens, indoor or outdoor niches, columbariums or mausoleums.
Hold a Funeral Service
If you want the benefits offered by traditional burials but also want to be cremated, this is the option for you. The service can take place in a chapel or graveside.
A Chance to Say Farewell
To many, viewings and visitations serve as an important part of the grieving process by offering an opportunity for a final farewell. Even if you are cremated, this option can be selected and you can also add a reception for your friends and family as part of your memorial plans.
To ensure that your love one’s memory is everlasting, you can choose from quality cremation products such as keepsake or cremation urns, record packages and jewellery.
