Our Facilities

Visitation Suites

Our funeral home’s visitation suites are tastefully decorated. The simple elegance reflected in colour, furnishings, and architecture provide a comforting and serene environment. Each suite provides a generous space to meet with family and friends during visitation or for the privacy of one’s immediate family. Displaying picture boards and personal memorabilia is welcomed. All suites have their own sound system and Memorial DVD televisions. Each suite has its own register for family and friends to sign. Our funeral home can comfortably accommodate several families without any interruption in care or respect.

Selection Room

Our funeral home’s selection room displays a varied selection of caskets which include variations in price, craftsmanship, woods, metals, carvings, finishes and fabrics. Changeable corners, casket panels, and a selection of rental caskets and cremation containers are displayed. Vaults and urns are also displayed. Stationery packages can be viewed and included in this display are the accompanying register book, in memoriam cards, acknowledgement cards, bookmarks, and other related stationery needs.

Our Chapel

Our chapel can comfortably accommodate 180 family and friends, with additional seating available. Our chapel has a beautiful Baby Grand Yamaha Clavinova that can be accompanied by a pianist or family friend or family member. Life tributes (Memorial DVD) may be viewed in our chapel and visitation suites.

Donation Office

Conventionally located at the front of the funeral home, the donation office provides a private space for family and friends to donate in memory of their loved one.

Arrangement Office

Our arrangement office offers our families the privacy and intimacy needed when making arrangements with our directors. It is also a comfortable space for clergy to meet with the family when discussing and co-ordinating a funeral service.

Reception Room

The funeral home offers the use of a room where families may offer a time of fellowship after the funeral. Staff will set up, clean up, and provide assistance during your gathering. Families are invited to supply their own luncheon (Church group, lodge group, club or anyone you choose is welcomed to bring prepared food and serve) or at their request, the funeral home will contact a professional caterer to supply food at your expense. Use of this room is included at no charge to families choosing traditional services. Our reception room is always available to families. Freshly brewed coffee, tea, and a water cooler are always available. Family are encouraged and welcomed to use this area to visit with family and friends.


A large parking lot provides adequate space for families and friends to park during visitation and the funeral service.
