We provide many different types of funeral services at several locations in Ottawa. We realize that choosing a funeral service that is right for you and your family is very important, and that is why we have created several flexible options. Our funeral directors will help you understand all of these options and will help arrange something that is right for you and your family.

We strive to make arrangements convenient for you so the choice is completely yours.
Step 3: Documentation - We will complete all of the documentation required for the funeral process. We also offer help with settling your estate through our Basic Estate Services. Documentation can be completed by phone, online, and in person in the Ottawa area.
Step 4: The Day of the Service - Our funeral directors will arrange everything so on the day of the service, there is nothing for you to focus on but your family. The services you choose will be scheduled at a time and place that is most convenient for you and your family and you will be provided with a funeral itinerary that completely outlines the details of the services you've arranged.
