Cremation With Remembrance
Cole Harbour Crematorium and Funeral Home can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
When it comes to the burial of your loved one, there is no right or wrong choice. Simple and affordable, cremation is becoming a more practiced approach throughout Canada. We will guide you through the process and ensure that your goodbye is meaningful and dignified. The options available to you with a cremation service are plentiful. In fact, in many ways you have more options than a traditional burial.
Final Resting Place Options
Just as with a burial service, you have options regarding a final place of rest. Some may choose a special indoor/outdoor niche, while others prefer the more traditional burial plot, mausoleum, columbarium or urn garden.
Chapel or Graveside Service
The expression of grief is an important part of the process. Graveside and chapel services are possible options as you seek to find the closure you need.
Everyone finds closure and copes with loss in their own way. For many, this means including viewings and visitations in the grieving process. Even with cremation this can still be a fundamental part of your tribute. Before the cremation, through viewings and even a reception, you can honour the life and spirit of your loved one.
Urns and Keepsakes
While the memories remain, you may wish to have a keepsake. We offer an array of cremation products, including keepsake urns, jewelry and memorial record packages, to help you keep your loved one with you forever.

What is cremation and what choices can be made?
While it’s natural to think of cremation as the only decision to make, it’s really the first of many choices and details to consider. Similar to a traditional service, cremation allows for visitations, as well as funeral or memorial gatherings to celebrate a life well lived. Learn more in our video about cremation.
