Cremation With Remembrance

Every year, there is an increase in the number of Canadians who opt for cremation as their preferred choice. Many are finding the simpler and less costly alternative of cremation, a more attractive option

To make your farewell as meaningful and personal as a traditional burial, you can chose from the following options:

Placement Choices

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.

Urns and Keepsakes

To ensure that your loved one’s memory will remain with you forever, you can select from several quality cremation products such as memorial record packages, jewellery and keepsake and cremation urns.
