Mount Royal Cemetery and Funeral Complex is known for its rich tradition and beautiful landscapes, however, very few know that it is also the place where Canada's first cremation took place in 1901. Built with the help of the donations by Sir Will MacDonald, Canada's first crematorium provided a place where people of all denomination and faiths could safely and respectfully cremate their loved ones remains. Cremation has been used by cultures and societies for thousands of years as a means of disposition, with proof dating back to the Neolithic. Orthodox Jews, the Eastern Orthodox Christian churches, and Muslims are still forbidden to cremate their dead. Other cultural groups, especially in India, continue to practice cremation. Today, cremation is practiced by some Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Hindus as well as other religions in tribal communities over the world.
The Cremation Association of North America cites numerous reasons for which more and more people are opting for cremation, from the increase in life expectancy to greater religious and traditional flexibility due to the homogenization of society and integration of multiculturalism in our daily lives.
Our counselors will be able to answer all your questions regarding the cremation process and its procedures. When considering cremation as part of a funeral, there are several details which will need to be decided upon, such as:
Cremation with visitation and embalming
Cremation with visitation and perhaps the use of a rental casket
Memorial service – with the cremated remains or without
Church services coordinated with clergy
Receptions following a service with catering
These details as well as where, when and how the cremated remains will be disposed of, whether they will be buried in a cemetery or placed in a niche or taken away by a family member are what our team of professionals can assist you with. Discuss with one of our funeral service professionals today for more information.
