A funeral service is a highly personal choice. Many people follow the traditions of their family and culture, but there may also be religious or military considerations that you want to include in the service. Whether you choose burial services in Ottawa or cremation services, the funeral can be designed to fit your beliefs and the wishes of your loved one.
Elements of a funeral that are meaningful to you
The traditional burial service usually includes a visitation or viewing, a traditional service in a church or funeral home or graveside service, and a funeral reception. Military honors or religious rituals can be included or not. It is up to you. Cremation does not mean that you cannot have the same rites as a traditional burial. Our funeral directors can help you plan a meaningful service regardless of the type of service you choose.
Pre-planning a funeral to tell your family your wishes
One stressful aspect of a funeral is not knowing what the deceased wanted. It is difficult to discuss burial or cremation services in Orleans because most people do not want to talk about their mortality. Funeral homes in Ottawa can help you pre-plan your funeral service to take the stress off your family. We have guides that can take you through the process. You can record your wishes and leave them with us. Some people pre-pay their funeral, while others leave the payment for the estate.
