After a passing, when burial is the chosen disposition, our experienced team at Country Hills Crematorium will work with you every step of the way to make the necessary choices and decisions required.
We work with all local cemeteries and will also coordinate burials at cemeteries worldwide. As part of the burial, families may choose from a number of services options, including a visitation, funeral and/or graveside service.
Expert support & guidance
Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation and is followed by a funeral service. While the casket is typically present at both these events, it is your decision whether to have the casket open. You then have a number of options for interment. Decisions also need to be made on whether the body needs to be embalmed, what kind of casket to use, what cemetery to use and what to put on the gravestone.
We will provide guidance and support as needed to help you through the process of making these decisions.

Still have questions?
When you or your loved one will be buried, a cemetery will need to be chosen. Other decisions will include choosing a casket and whether or not the body will be embalmed. You will also decide what text to place on the gravestone or plaque, its style, size and design. Often times the section of the cemetery chosen will determine the options of memorialization you’re able to choose. Interment options can include a mausoleum (above ground burial), natural (green burial) or a traditional burial. Some burials may have the option of two burials in one space, one at extra depth and a second at standard depth.
Country Hills Crematorium offers many caskets to choose from. In Western Canada, over 90% of the caskets sold are made of wood. Wood caskets can be made of fine hardwood such as oak, cherry, maple or ash, while other caskets that are less expensive are made of MDF or plywood and covered in wood veneer or fabric. Caskets can also, less commonly, be made of metal, 18 or 20 gauge steel or precious metal, copper or bronze. Regardless of the material used to make the casket, it can be personalized in a variety of ways to reflect the life of a loved one.
