What services do you require?


With practical wisdom and clarity, I listen to understand. It helps decrease stress.  When a client feels supported,

the decisions around funeral (death care) products, services and legal requirements are better understood.

In the world of funeral care, (post death care) there are two types of need

PreNeed Arrangement is the term for getting your deathcare arrangements in place. Many people express the desire to get things done so the others aren't left with the burden. Our philosophy is that the burden of providing deathcare is shifted if the Executor(s) are well aware of what you have in place - that means having difficult conversations. If you'd like more information, please attend one of our "How to Fund Your Funeral Workshops." Check in on The Coffin Shop tab.

At Need Arrangement is the term used when death is imminent or has already occurred and practical disposition arrangements are required immediately. In this case, please call with your questions.

 So, what are the currently available disposition choices?


We hear everyday of innovative and creative ways of body disposition. Some are more practical than others. however, the current availability in Alberta presents three options. These include:

1.  Cremation- with cremation there still needs to be a plan for what to do with the remains after cremation.

2.  Burial – cemetery costs and cemetery product requirements add considerable dollars to your costs.  The Cities of Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan each have municipal cemetery services. There are many rural cemeteries in Alberta. 

3.  Anatomical Research - body is donated to the University of Alberta. There is not always a need for anatomical research. The University of Alberta reserves the right to decline donations. In that case, family is then responsible for disposition. This link provides detailed information with regard to procedures and legalities of donation.
