Cremation With Remembrance
Richmond Funeral Home can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
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:
You can select to have your urn buried, or kept in a mausoleum, a columbarium, an indoor or outdoor niche or a special garden for urns.
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.
Viewings and Visitations
Even if you choose a cremation, visitations and viewings can still be added to your tribute. Many people find this an important part of the grieving process as it offers a final opportunity to say goodbye. As a part of your memorial plans, a reception for friends and family can be included.
