Personalized Keepsakes

Cemetery Markers

cemetery-markersUnlike many other parts of Canada, Vancouver Island enjoys reasonably mild winters, which does not affect installation of cemetery markers. Simply give us a call or come by at your convenience and see our many samples, in a variety of colours. Selecting a granite or bronze marker provides for so much more creativity and personalization than you may have thought. New laser technology can allow for as unique or as traditional a concept as you wish. As well, delivery is quick and we’ll arrange with the cemetery for placement when it arrives! We’re pleased to take whatever time is required to ensure that your choice is exactly as you want.

Comox Valley Funeral Home Cremsailboatation and Reception Centre offers distinctive, individual cremation selections.

The most common misconception about cremation is that choices of ceremonies are limited. In fact, with cremation, there are actually more choices available than with burial. We offer over 20 variations, some of which you may not have considered. Earth burial, above-ground entombment in a “niche wall”, scattering or keeping the urn at home are all individual choices.

The variety of cremation urns we offer reflects each of these preferences. We have on display many choices of artificially designed cremation urns, including small “keepsake” designs, as well as many new bio-degradable urns.

Celebration of Life DVD

When you take the time to help us create a memory filled ceremony for the person who has died, a “Celebration of Life” DVD presentation capsulating his or her life, becomes a key point of how we say goodbye. Our exclusive video producer will collect your photos, slides or computer generated images, creating a memory that will not only be the focal point of your ceremony but will remain a priceless keepsake for family and future generations to share forever!

What are the options after cremation has been completed?

The urn containing the cremated remains will be returned to you or the party you have designated. If you and/or other family members have not already decided on a final resting place for the cremated remains, you may wish to consult with us on the many options available.

Options Include:

Interment of the urn containing the cremated remains in a family burial plot at a cemetery. (Some cemeteries require a vault for burial. Please check with us for specific cemetery requirements.)

Placement of the urn containing the cremated remains in a granite columbarium niche wall above ground.

Scattering of the cremated remains in a scattering garden especially created and dedicated to this purpose.

The urn may of course be taken to the home of a loved one but plans should be made for an eventual permanent resting place.

With any of these choices permanent memorialization in the form of a bronze or granite plaque or marker provides a permanent place for those who wish to remember and celebrate a life lived. Permanent memorialization provides a link from generation to generation and a special place that family and friends know will always be there to mark forever a special life lived.

Should you presently have cremated remains of a family member or have not made arrangements for them to be interred or scattered in an area designed for permanent memorialization, contact us at 250-334-0707 to discuss how we can help you with final closure through one of the many options we provide.
