We will remain available to serve families in need 24 hours a day by calling our office at 902-752-2545. Due to public health regulations, in-person meetings will be by appointment only and limited to 4 people. Funerals are limited to 50% percent of the venues capacity with a maximum of 150 people inside and 250 people outside with social distancing. A flow -through visitation is not permitted at this time as gathering limits require a consistent group of individuals. This may be lifted when the province enters phase 5 reopening. Wearing a mask is mandatory, and social distancing protocols must be followed. Anyone who is exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms or who could be considered high risk of contracting the virus should avoid attending in-person meetings or funerals. We thank you for your understanding in these difficult times. Please stay safe.
Cremation is an increasingly popular option for many people, serving as an alternative to burial. Reasons for preferring cremation vary. Some religions request it, while other people consider it more environmentally conscious. Some may simply like the idea of cremation more.
Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation and is followed by a funeral service. While the casket is typically present at both these events, it is your decision whether to have the casket open. You then have a number of options for interment.
The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences in life. Words fail to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is more challenging than we, or others, might expect.
