*Does not include casket, embalming for viewing ($500), cremation ($770), or burial fees (varies by cemetery)

Step One: Transfer

Your loved one is transferred into our care by one of our experienced funeral directors.

Step Two: Initial Consultation

Our funeral director will call you to learn about your particular situation and discuss the options available to you. These include choosing a casket and identifying family members in your isolation bubble. We'll also talk about ways of completing the necessary paperwork and introduce you to our Client Portal.

Step Three: Discuss with Celebrant

We'll arrange for a celebrant to make contact with you. They will offer you ideas for both the committal service and the memorial service. The celebrant will design the committal service first which they can deliver in person or via an online meeting.

Step Four: Private Committal

Your loved one will be transported from the funeral home to the cemetery or crematorium by our team members. This can be videoed and/or webcast for families to view live (crematorium only). Up to ten people may attend the committal service at our Remembrance Chapel or Cemetery.
