Why we don't list our prices
Unlike some funeral homes, you won’t see a price list on our website. That’s because there is no one size fits all memorial – every family is unique, and so every service we provide can be tailored to your exact needs and budget. Rather than displaying a low initial price with hidden or extra fees afterwards, Sands -Duncan works with you to create a meaningful celebration for your loved one - within a budget that suits your needs. Our highly trained professionals know how to make your funeral services affordable, without sacrificing the care and dignity your loved one deserves.
"Over the past 78 years I have had to arrange 6 funerals and attended many others. The services offered ranged from adequate to perfect, or so I though. The present passing of my wife of 51 years and the choice of Sands funeral Chapel in Duncan BC for the cremation and memorial service had shown my family a new definition of perfection. The Covid 19 compliance and all other aspects of arrangements were perfect. But then they added something else. It was tangible. We could feel it. They added their love. And for that we again thank Ginette, Troy and Janice."
— Bruce Weaver from Ladysmith, British Columbia
The Benefits of Planning Ahead
- Savings: Planning early offers cost savings of up to thousands of dollars.
- Reduce the burden on your family: Planning your final arrangements ahead of time reduces the responsibilities on your family at their time of distress.
- Peace of mind: Gain comfort in knowing your plans are ready.
The legacy you leave behind is as important as the life you live today. Pre-planning gives your family comfort, knowing everything has been arranged in advance and according to your wishes. It’s not just about taking care of the finances, it’s about choosing how you want to be remembered.
We know it can be difficult making important decisions without professional advice, especially when it comes to something as emotional as deciding between burial, cremation or a specific type of memorial. Our pre-planning specialists can guide you through every step, ensuring you have a plan that fits your needs.
