Cremation With Remembrance
Westlawn Funeral Home & Cemetery features the convenience and flexibility of an on-site crematorium.
Whether you’re planning ahead or deciding on the best option for your loved one, cremation services are a simple and affordable approach that can bring you comfort and peace. We are finding that many are choosing cremation for a number of reasons. This approach does not limit your choices and in fact, can give you just as many options as you would have with a more elaborate burial.
Final Resting Place Options
Beyond choosing the actual urn, the decision of where to place the urn is an important one. A traditional burial plot is an option. Others choose an indoor or outdoor niche or columbarium. Mausoleums and special gardens designed specifically for memorializing urns are also available.
Chapel or Graveside Service
The expression of grief is an important part of the process. Graveside and chapel services are possible options as you seek to find the closure you need.
Everyone finds closure and copes with loss in their own way. For many, this means including viewings and visitations in the grieving process. Even with cremation this can still be a fundamental part of your tribute. Before the cremation, through viewings and even a reception, you can honour the life and spirit of your loved one.
Keep Memories with You Forever
Offering a collection of keepsakes, jewelry, memorial record packages and specialized urns, we want to help you hold on to the cherished memories of your loved one.
What is cremation and what choices can be made?
While it’s natural to think of cremation as the only decision to make, it’s really the first of many choices and details to consider. Similar to a traditional service, cremation allows for visitations, as well as funeral or memorial gatherings to celebrate a life well lived. Learn more in our video about cremation.
