Options with Burial
When choosing burial, a visitation and/or a ceremony in the presence of the casket might be held before the burial at the cemetery. A reception for family and friends may also be organized after the funeral. Some people opt to forego both visitation and service.
Options with Cremation
Choosing cremation does not limit your options when it comes to honouring the life of your loved one.
A visitation and/or a ceremony can be held in the presence of the casket or of the urn depending on whether the cremation takes place before or after the funeral.
A reception may also take place at the end of the funeral. Some people opt to forego both visitation and service (simple cremation).
