There will be additional charges for the direction and supervision of each service as requested or required and other services or items as selected.
Embalming is a chemical process, which provides temporary preservation of the body, eliminates certain health hazards and delays certain potentially unpleasant biological processes. A person licensed by this province must complete this procedure. Except in certain special cases, the law does not require embalming. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with a viewing when it has been 72 hours since the death occurred. If you do not want embalming, you have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require it, such as direct cremation or direct burial.
The ID viewing is a short-term (maximum 15 minutes) visitation for the immediate family only to see their loved one in a comfortable and dignified setting prior to final disposition. The person is prepared to look their best appearance possible and will be dressed if clothing is available. The ID viewing takes place in our chapel in comfort and privacy, with the deceased present on an adjustable bed with seating close by for loved ones to visit and support one another.
* Please allow 1.5 hours minimum preparation time prior to scheduling an ID Viewing.

The Memorial Package
We offer many different styles and prices of caskets, as well as an alternative container, from which to select. Since many caskets that seem similar in appearance may differ greatly in quality and construction, we offer the following to assist you in making an informed decision.
Protective: Caskets designed by the manufacturer to resist the entrance of air, water and other outside elements. They may be constructed of varying gauges of steel, copper or bronze. "There is no scientific evidence that any casket with a sealing device will preserve human remains."
Non-protective: These caskets are not designed by the manufacturer to resist the entrance of air, water or other outside elements. They may be constructed of metal, hardwood, or wood products covered with fabric.
The only warranty on the casket or any merchandise sold in connection with this service is the express warranty, if any, granted by the manufacturer.
