At Candlepines, we recognise that every family has unique requirements for memorialising a deceased loved one. For those who opt for cremation, we provide traditional cremation services that can be tailored to meet your particular needs.
Our traditional cremation service includes the use of a ceremonial casket for the visitation and service, providing your loved one with a dignified and respectful setting. We offer a variety of caskets, including options made of hardwood, metal, and eco-friendly materials.
During the visitation, relatives and friends can pay their respects and express their condolences. You may hold the visitation at our funeral home or at another location of your choosing. We can also help arrange a traditional church service prior to or following the visitation.
Following the viewing and any additional services, we will transport your loved one to the crematorium for cremation. Once the cremation is complete, we will carefully package the ashes and present them to you in either a temporary urn or an urn of your choosing that is more permanent.
At Candlepines, we are committed to assisting you in creating a meaningful and individualised funeral service that reflects your loved one’s unique life and personality. Our knowledgeable and empathetic staff is available to guide you through the entire procedure and answer any questions you may have along the way.
The only difference between traditional cremations and funerals is that the deceased is cremated rather than buried. Direct cremation, on the other hand, involves the immediate cremation of the deceased without a funeral service.
After the cremation, friends and family can gather for a memorial service to remember and honour their deceased loved one.
