About Cremation

Cremation services are an alternative option to burial services. More than 50% of people choose this as a final disposition because of environmental or religious concerns, personal reasons, and cost.

Cremation ceremonies offer an opportunity for your family, friends, and loved ones to celebrate a loved ones’ life lived, share in grief and come together for support. This can take place before or after cremation.

We are here to guide you through all options available and to attend to each family’s specific needs to help memorialize your loved one’s life with compassion and care. We want to help our families create a memorable, meaningful ceremony in which to say goodbye.

As such, we offer four cremation plans for your consideration and are happy to help guide you through the process. If you prefer a customized plan for your arrangement, we can accommodate to best suit your needs. We serve anyone located in Edmonton and surrounding areas.

Types of Cremation Services

Cremation can take place before the service and you will have the urn present for the funeral service.
This is when you would have an open or closed casket at the funeral service and the cremation would take place the next day.
We offer the choice for families to witness the Cremation to help create a more meaningful experience.

Final Disposition

There are also a variety of options for your loved one’s final disposition of cremated remains. These options include placing the cremated remains in an Urn of the family’s choice to be displayed in a columbarium, niche, or home. Cremated remains may also be buried or scattered in an area that complies with local laws and regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Basic Info

What is the purpose of embalming?
Embalming is a process used to sanitize and temporarily preserve the body of a person who has passed away. It can also enhance the appearance of a person that has suffered damage from an accident or illness. By preserving the body through embalming, we can give you and your family time to make personalized and meaningful arrangements, including a viewing if desired.
Who should make the funeral arrangements?
The person with the legal authority to make funeral arrangements is the Executor of the Will. Sometimes, by mutual agreement, the authority to make the arrangements is passed on to someone in the family or a friend of the family. You should be aware whoever signs the funeral service agreement is financially responsible for the funeral.

Service Info

Can I still have a viewing and/or a funeral service with cremation?
Yes, we encourage you to do so. By choosing cremation, you are indicating how you’d like to care for your loved one after the service takes place, and most definitely does not exclude you from celebrating and honouring their life. We’re happy to design a meaningful service to accompany the cremation. 
What is a viewing?
A viewing—also known as “visitation,” a “wake,” or “calling hours”—can involve an open or closed casket, and is seen as a vital part of the grieving process. Having a loved one present often helps family and friends to accept the reality of their loss, especially for those who may not have seen him or her in a while. The opportunity to come to terms with the death and say a final farewell is an important step on the road to closure and healing.
Should I bring my children to the funeral?
You should use your judgment to determine whether your child is old enough to comprehend death, or whether attending the funeral will be meaningful to them. It’s important for children to be allowed to express their grief and share in this important ritual. If you bring young children, explain beforehand what they will see and experience. If your child becomes restless, it is acceptable protocol to exit the service and return when you feel ready.
Can I supply my own flowers for the service?
Yes you can. However, for your convenience, you may choose to order from our in-house florist who can design a floral arrangement package to meet your requirements.
