Why Choose Cremation?

Reasons for Choosing Cremation.

Cremation has been apart of the human experience for a very long time, and is the preferred method of caring for a loved one in many parts of the world.

While we could recite statistics on the rising popularity of cremation in Canada, and other nations, they really won't mean very much to you. After all, who picks cremation just because everyone else is doing so?

People choose cremation because they believe it to be the right choice for them. It's as deeply personal of a decision as that of selecting burial. The decision could be based on:

  • The Desire for Simplicity: There is nothing simpler than a cremation, where the body is transferred directly to the crematory, and everything is done within hours of completing the necessary paperwork.

 

  • The Need for Flexibility: A Memorial service after a direct cremation can be arranged at a time that's convenient for family members. There is no rush to put together a ceremony which many in the circle can't attend due to time or financial constraints.

 

  • The Intention to More Fully Honour a Loved One: A service can be planned for weeks, even months, after the cremation. This means more people can get involved and there's plenty of time to gather meaningful scriptural passages, poetry, literary quotes, music, photos, and videos.

 

  • Financial Challenges: This simple fact is often all it takes for a family to make the cremation decision; however we firmly believe that there is great value in bringing family and friends together - value which exceed mere cost

 

If any of those reasons ring true for you and your family, then cremation may be the perfect alternative for your loved one.


 

Decisions You Make When Choosing Cremation:

 

  • Who will perform the cremation?
  • Should you purchase and Urn?
  • What kind of remembrance ceremony would you like to have?
  • What will you do with the cremated remains?


You may wish to keep the remains at your home for a time, until you feel ready to let go of them, or when all family members can be present for a scattering ceremony.

Our professional Funeral Directors can advise you on unique ways to memorialize a loved one using the cremated remains, including the creation of art glass objects. We also offer a wide selection of cremation keepsake jewelry.

We can also recommend firms in the area that specialize in scattering the cremated remains at sea, or in the air.

Call us today to explore cremation options, and many creative ways you can memorialize a loved one either before or after the cremation has occured.
