Honouring Service Personnel
We’re proud to do our part in honouring our Nations Service Men & Women, and giving back to those whose sacrifice and patriotism define our great nation. Our duty is to provide you and your family with professional and dignified assistance during your time of need, and to support you in honouring your loved one for their dedication and selfless service.
We would be honoured to make arrangements for a traditional military tribute.
The Healing Power of Memorial Services
Coping with a loss is never easy, and services are an essential part of the recovery process. A Funeral service provides those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye, and come to terms with the loss. Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to connect, share memories, offer words of sympathy, and create a lasting network of comfort and support as they start the journey toward healing and peace. No matter the setting, style, or direction you choose, our professional staff will be honoured to assist you in creating a service that reflects your loved one’s unique life journey.
There are different elements you can choose from when arranging a burial, depending upon your individual needs and preferences:
Immediate Burial means that your loved one’s physical remains will be interred without a public service or gathering.
Visitation (also called a “viewing“) allows family and friends to gather in a room with the departed loved one (in an open or closed casket) and gives everyone the opportunity to say goodbye and offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved.
Funeral or Memorial Services can take place at our funeral home, in a church or even at your home. The service is a ceremony which serves to celebrate, honour, and remember the life of the deceased. Whether traditional or unique, the funeral service can be personalised to reflect the individuality of your loved one. For more information on personalisation, visit our page on Celebrating Life.
Graveside Services are held at the cemetery, and allow family and friends to be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final disposition through ground burial.
The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can’t be a funeral service or visitation at the Crematorium. This is absolutely not the case – when you choose to care for the physical remains through cremation, we encourage you to consider the many options open to you when it comes to honouring your loved one’s life: you can provide a chance for friends and family to say goodbye through a final viewing before the cremation, and you can also hold a formal service either before or after the cremation occurs. After the cremation itself, there are a variety of choices for your loved one’s final disposition:
Interment means that you’ll bury or entomb your loved one’s cremated remains. This can be in the family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations.
Ask our staff for a detailed list of possibilities.
Graveside Services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honour the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.
Scattering allows you to spread your loved one’s cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You can also choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for internment or another form of disposition.
Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one’s final resting place in a nearby location.
