We receive many phone calls and inquiries as to the cost of a funeral, and it still remains one the the harder issues to answer easily. Since every family and every funeral is somehow unique to itself, generic, one price answers are hard to give. Having said this, we have attempted to set out our price list in such a way that, for the most part, a family can see the many options and types of funerals that are available. A funeral may be customized to meet the needs of any family, by itemizing the services that are required and eliminating services that are not deemed necessary.
Some of the key issues to determine funeral costs might be found in a few simple questions. The first issue might be the choice of visitation, should that be held for one full day, or perhaps an evening or an afternoon prior to the day of service, or maybe an hour or so prior to the time of service on the same day. As you might expect, the duration of visitation will have an effect on the overall cost of the services. Another issue that should be determined is whether embalming should be provided to accomodate an open casket situation. Embalming is not mandatory under Ontario law, however, many funeral homes, such as ours might have policies regarding viewing and identification. If embalming is declined, you will notice the other preparation options that can be chosen. Items such as stationery and automobiles can also further determine the overall cost. As part of the public price list, you will find descriptions of all services so you can determine what is involved and your requirement of that service. As well, a full written description of all merchandise such as caskets, burial vaults and urns that are normally kept on premises are available for your consideration.
