News & Updates

Cremation services
Did you know that in our area cremation has become very common. Cremation is simply an alternative form of disposition rather then burial. Cremation does not reflect on the service that is held to remember the life lived or to provide support and comfort to those who grief.
Alternatively if a cremation without memorialization is desired, we at the Mitchell Funeral Home can assist you with this choice. But, we will still provide to you our knowledge and support. We work hard for you and strive to keep our fees affordable as well as competitive.
A newer service across Ontario are cremation services, they advertise simple and affordable services, but simply they are doing what funeral homes have always done, but are limited to only dealing with dispositions.
As a funeral home owner, I just suggest, talk to your local funeral home first. Check out the level of service before and after the disposition as well as related fees. We are here to serve you 24/7.
