Cremation in Markham: Steps to Take
With innovative sustainability and urban planning initiatives, Markham is a growing, thriving leader among Canadian municipalities. In fact, it is the largest of York Region’s nine municipalities and has over a quarter million residents. It is a dynamic, culturally diverse town just north of Toronto that also comprises Thornhill and Unionville. In recent years we have noticed a marked increase in the number of Markham families looking for simple, affordable options to lay their loved ones to rest. Even those for whom cost was not the driving factor, were often confused and overwhelmed by traditional funeral offerings. Especially for people whose relatives expressly wanted to be cremated, Affordable Burials & Cremations had the right combination of simple, respectful services to meet their needs.
If your loved one has passed away in the Markham area and you, as an executor, relative or representative responsible for making arrangements, are interested in cremation options, here are some preliminary, basic steps to take:
- Try to locate written directives from your loved one that set out how they would like their remains to be disposed of after death. If you don’t know where such documents might be located, you can check through their personal papers, speak with their attorney or family estate planner, or ask any next of kin they may have spoken to about their wishes.
- Contact Affordable Burials and Cremation, your Markham cremation services provider online or by phone and find out what combination of packages and related services that may be right for you and your family.
Select a cremation service the best suits your needs.
