In some cases, the deceased or their family may prefer not to have a service. Sometimes this is because they wish to have a private gathering or to hold a service at a later date. In this case, we can coordinate the burial or cremation and be available to you should you desire to hold a memorial service at another time or on your own.
Other times the wish is to simply allow the death to pass without any service or gathering. This is a personal choice and the team at Country Hills Crematorium is here to support you in any way that you need.

IMMEDIATE DISPOSITION FAQs
This is a personal choice based on your beliefs and preferences. The deceased can be buried or cremated immediately with little to no ceremony and any gathering or service can be held at a later date or not at all. There are few differences in the outcome between burial and cremation, so it often comes down to the unique belief systems and values of the individual and their family.
If you need more information on the advantages of each option to help you decide what is right for you, please check out our blog post on the topic or contact us for more information.
A celebration of life could be similar to a funeral or memorial service. The defining feature of a celebration of life is that the ceremony is positive and focused on sharing memories and remembering the life of the deceased rather than focusing on their death.
