What "Simply JR" at our Family-Run, Independent Funeral Home Provides you with
that makes difficult times easier:
- Cost: Our low, competitive, basic price will satisfy.
Convenience: Unlike other crematoriums, we are open seven days a week.
Environmental: No smoke and no emissions as recorded for the Ministry of the Environment on our computerized Continuous Monitoring System.
Connection: Prior to cremation we offer "Family Time," a time to say good-bye in one of our visitation suites. Complimentary.
Peace of Mind: You can see, during Family Time, that the correct body is being cared for. You may also witness cremation if desired.
Expertise: Excellence in service. Our courteous, knowledgeable staff will help you and treat you and your loved one with dignity.
Beautiful Facilities: Accessible, comfortable, and relaxed setting when you make arrangements, have Family Time, and receive the remains.
Optional Service Choices: If you would like to add a private or public gathering, we can arrange and host it for you in our suites, chapel, or Celebration Centre.
Support After the Death: One-on-one bereavement support as well as groups is available upon request.
If you've prepaid elsewhere, please ask us how easy it is to transfer it to us. We do the paperwork and you do not have to revisit the original crematorium or funeral home.
