The choice of casket depends on taste, religion, budget, and values. We like that many of our caskets are made in Ontario. We have a variety of woods, some metals, some cloths. They are displayed on the second floor of our funeral home. Many others can be ordered.
Other considerations, such as the burial plot, will be taken care of directly with the cemetery. Some cemeteries require a vault, sometimes called “outer burial container,” but not all do. Would you like to protect your loved one’s casket with a concrete vault? We carry vaults along with caskets if you decide in favour of a vault.
“Green Burial” is available in designated cemeteries. Biodegradable caskets are used and monuments are not used, to keep the landscape as natural as possible. We carry environmentally friendly caskets and use environmentally friendly embalming fluids when requested.
Memorialization with burial can be as simple as a private graveside service or a Celebration of Life in our Celebration Centre. Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation, followed by a funeral service in our chapel or a church. The casket is typically present at both these events. Burial, as a way to care for the body in death, is amenable to non-traditional services as well. Burial is a time-honoured way of caring for the body in death, as many religions testify.
