Meeting our Funeral Directors

 

What to Expect:

Chances are, within the first 24 hours of your loved one's death, you will need to meet with a funeral home. Without a doubt, this is a difficult time for your and your loved ones. Yet, it's comforting to know every member of our funeral home staff will be there to do their utmost to make this difficult time a little easier. Our Funeral Directors will guide you in making all the necessary decisions. It's good to know you are not alone.

You can expect our staff to be patient, comforting, and to inform you of all your decisions. We will not make you uncomfortable and guarantee that we will give you our utmost attention.

 


 

Who is Responsible for Making Decisions?

It's important to know exactly who is legally responsible for making the funeral decisions. If the deceased has not expressed their wishes through a written document such as a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care or a Last Will and Testament, where the deceased has designated an agent to fulfill their wishes; then chain of command is commonly as follows:

  • Legal Spouse/ Partner
  • Surviving Adult Child/ Children
  • Surviving Parent
  • Surviving Adult Sibling
  • Ex-Spouse
  • Parent or Minor Child

 


 

What You Need to Bring:

When you meet with our Funeral Director you will need to bring documentation of the following:

  • Proof that your are the Executor or that you have the Legal Rights to make the funeral arrangements
  • Last Will & Testament
  • Deceased's Birth Certificate
  • Deceased's Marriage Certificate
  • Deceased Funeral Pre-Arrangement Documents if applicable
  • Deceased's SIN Number (for CPP Documentation)
  • Spouses SIN (if not deceased)
  • A Photo of your loved one, for the Online Book of Memories Page
  • Date & Place of Birth
  • Parents Names and Places of Birth

 

All these documents will help our Funeral Directors to register the death, produce a death certificate, complete all CPP documents (include the CPP Death Benefit), as well it will allow them to understand who your loved one was.


 

Who Should be Included in Making the Arrangements?

While assigning the responsibility is an important part of funeral planning, it's also very important to include children, close friends, or other family who would like to be a part of arranging the funeral. Despite the fact that they may not have legal decision authority, their input could be very valuable to the process.

Assisting in making the final arrangement decisions can be very empowering, and help someone come to terms with the loss. If there are people in your life who you feel should be asked to participate, make sure you ask them.
