A funeral ceremony and visitation is more than a ritual to bid farewell. It’s a tribute to honour the distinctive character of one special life – an opportunity to celebrate the experiences, accomplishments, hobbies, heritage and history of a unique and irreplaceable personality.
A Chance to Heal
For many, a meaningful service is an important part of the healing process. It also helps console the immediate family, the people who often feel the loss most deeply.
Say More Than Just Goodbye
Classic or contemporary, elaborate or understated, the potential for personal expressions is almost endless. You may want to serve Grandma’s favourite cookie, or showcase Dad’s prized motorcycle collection. No matter how traditional or unique the request, our planning professionals creatively and resourcefully provide a one-of-a-kind remembrance.
Helping You Cope with Grief
AfterCare is an important free service offered by Victoria Memorial Gardens to assist you with practical guidance, literature and emotional support anytime it’s needed.
If you are responsible for finalizing the estate, you may be surprised by the number of details requiring your attention. Our AfterCare professionals can help you in your duties.
While Victoria Memorial Gardens will work closely with any funeral home you choose, we suggest you consider our sister Arbor Memorial funeral home, Victoria Greenlawn.
