Our Funeral Directors are professionals dedicated to listening to families and guiding them through the process of arranging a funeral following the death of a loved one or prearranging a funeral in advance. Although this may be an emotional and overwhelming experience, with our expertise, we help to simplify the process by providing the following services:
A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique. Many cultures and religions have special funeral traditions and we will accommodate any of your requests. This is a moment for you and your family and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.
Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, a church, a community hall, the final resting place or at your home.
A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
Green burial is a term used when the burial of the body is completed with the smallest carbon footprint possible. We have a full line of green burial options of caskets and shrouds and will advise our families on how to meet the standards for achieving the lowest possible impact on the environment.
In Alberta, cremation is the only other alternative to disposition of the body to earth burial. Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the cremated remains or have the urn placed in a cemetery.
