Whether you chose burial or cremation, a service should be included in your arrangements. A funeral service fills several important needs in today’s society. First of all, it provides for the dignified and respectful care of the deceased. It's a special tribute to a unique life. Equally important, the funeral service helps survivors face the reality of death – the first big step toward overcoming grief. Together, close friends and relatives can lend support and consolation when they're needed most.
A funeral gives friends and relatives an opportunity to express the love and respect they feel for someone who was important to them. Many times, just seeing how much others cared can be a tremendous help to a family in adjusting to their loss. We will work to accommodate any special requests that might add more meaning or personalization to a funeral service.
Pre-planning your funeral service with your family is best. It is the only way you will be able to carry out each other’s wishes when the time comes. When a death occurs, inform other family members as soon as possible. Then, contact the Funeral Home, even if it is after hours. We are available 24 hours a day. We will arrange for the transfer of your loved one to the Funeral Home, explain the embalming and funeral preparation process, and set up a time to arrange the funeral. For the arrangement, you will be asked to provide clothing, pictures, and information for the death registration and newspaper notices, such as full name, date of birth, address and social insurance number, occupation, parents’ names, date and place of the funeral and whether they are to be buried or cremated.
We will assist you in your selection of casket, burial container or urn, cemetery, memorial cards, music, flowers, photos, memorial donations, pallbearers, transportation, special requests and costs. We also would be happy to apply for your Canada Pension Plan death and survivor benefits, certify the documents submitted and also prepare and place an obituary, with or without a picture of the deceased, in newspapers of your choice.
