Family-Led Funerals

At the core of our tightly held values is the firm belief that families can care for their own dead and prepare their own funeral ceremonies and rituals. Occasionally some assistance is needed with certain tasks which we are honoured to offer. Below are our fees for supporting family-led care. All care is to be provided during business hours. See below for after-hours surcharge. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.
