  • The Cremation Association of North America predicts that by 2010, that figure will rise to 36%.
  • In Canada, the rate is already over 42%; in Great Britain, 71%; and over 98% in Japan.
  • Those who choose cremation (for themselves or others) often hold the belief that it is better to honor the memory of the person, not the dead body.

    I am pleased the way the request for cremation for my partner was expedited, even though we had to work long-distance with the sister of the deceased. Everything was handled in a timely fashion and with courtesy, for which I am greatly appreciative. If/when the occasion arises, I will certainly recommend your service to others.

  5. Polite, kind & understanding

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Jan 2014

    Bill went out of his way to help my family. The fact that it was a holiday did not bother him. The extras that I requested were taken care of with dignity and professionalism.
    I pray that I do not need the services again, but if I do I will certainly use them.

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Jun 2013

    I was so happy to find a service that was able to help my family during a very emotional time. We were received with empathy and respectfully educated in the process and services available when others were not so receptive. We felt that we got the best service for the cost involved.
