Pre-Arrangement

A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.

Our Packages and Prices

We offer Services from Simple Cremations to Traditional Funeral Services. Direct Cremation Package $995 including GST.

Ceremonial Service

The Ceremonial Service allows for the deceased to be present for the service in a beautiful, hardwood casket that is rented instead of purchased.  Cremation takes place following the service.  Most people do not want to purchase a casket that is going to be cremated.  When you rent a casket for Calgary memorial services, instead of purchasing it, the costs are substantially less.  The rental casket has a cremation container inside of the casket, and only the internal container is cremated following the service.

$4,495 including GST and the following:

  • Professional services and arrangement conference with one of our Licensed Funeral Directors in your home or at our funeral home, to plan all service details
