Just over two years ago I opened the doors of my locally owned and operated, grass-roots funeral business, Classic Cremation & Funeral Services. My focus has always been on listening carefully to people’s needs and offering simple, affordable solutions for cremation, burial and ceremony. I deeply respect and honour the circle of life by helping people care for, remember, mourn and celebrate their dead.
Over these past few years, I’ve continued to shed some of the conventional ideas and practices about how I, as a funeral professional, can best serve families. I’ve connected more deeply with my desire to provide options that support people to engage with their dead (and each other) in ways that reflect their values around conscious choices, environmental responsibility, and community connections. To that end, I’m delighted to announce the re-branding of my company to reflect this refined sense of how I can best contribute to what I see as a new age of death, dying and end-of-life care.
