Service Options

We offer the following options to assist you in a difficult and overwhelming time.

Personalized Memorial Services

We understand that every family is different. Influences such as religious and cultural traditions, cost concerns and personal preferences make many tributes as unique as the person being honoured. Our professionals are here to show you the options available. They will guide you through the process and take care of small details, so that you can be comforted by having held a fitting and personalized tribute for your loved one. Tributes can be formal, informal, religious, non-religious – whatever your family desires.

Cremation & Burial

Direct Cremation

Many funeral homes advertise cremation services, but use a 3rd party contractor to deliver the service.  With the only onsite crematorium in the Mid Island region, our professional staff are able to make direct cremation as simple as possible and once you call our team, your loved one will never leave our care.  We’re able to provide affordable, efficient, and professional basic cremation services without delay. 


Our on-site crematorium in Parksville allows us to offer a variety of cremation options – for both the Oceanside and Alberni Valley communities. From the simple basic cremation (without visitation or services) to customized cremation services with visitation and memorial service or celebration of life, we’ll provide the support and guidance you require in making your decision.


For those who chose burial, our cemeteries in Parksville and Port Alberni offer peaceful, serene settings for ceremonies and visitation. Burial can be for either the decedent’s body or cremated remains, and we offer both traditional casket burial, as well as above ground columbariums for urns.

Green Burial

In our Parksville cemetery, we are proud to offer Green Burial, certified by the Green Burial Council of Canada.  We are Canada’s only Green Burial cemetery with an onsite funeral home- allowing your family the ability to personalize the experience to your needs.

Our beautifully landscaped and impeccably maintained 13-acre cemetery offers a calm, serene setting for a funeral and a welcoming place for future visitations. The Serenity Cremation Garden, with its pond and fountain, is a peaceful spot for quiet contemplation, and the surrounding hills offer a pleasant backdrop.

Port Alberni

Alberni Valley Memorial Gardens, our five-acre Alberni Valley cemetery, is a short distance from our chapel and reception office. Surrounded by a beautiful, mature forest, this well-tended cemetery provides a comforting environment for visitors. A tranquil pond surrounds the park like setting of the cremation gardens.
