Cremation

For many people, cremation is the chosen means of disposition because of its perceived simplicity. However, our experience has shown that many survivors express the need for a permanent place to visit and place a flower on a special day.

Arbor cemeteries have specially-designed gardens and natural walkways which provide a scenic setting for traditional burial of cremated remains. Memorial trees, benches, nature rocks and above-ground niches - located outdoors or inside special buildings - are among the many options that allow families to visit and pay tribute to their loved one.

Urns
A cremation urn is a receptacle designed to contain cremated remains and can be placed in your local cemetery's special cremation garden, along nature walks or in above-ground ‘columbarium niches’ for permanent remembrance. Crafted from a variety of materials such as bronze or marble, urns are available in many shapes, colours and designs to suit the individual. Bronze, marble and glass urns are recommended because of their longevity and durability.  The possibilities can be as varied as the imagination.

It's Your Choice
If your preference is to arrange for a basic cremation, Sands - Duncan can offer you lower cost services that maintain respect and dignity for the deceased. Our full service facilities ensure your loved one is cared for professionally onsite. Unfortunately, not every cremation provider in our area can make the same promise.

Whether you choose a simpler option, or more elaborate cremation that includes a service and suitable final resting place, simply express your interest to us. We'll be happy to talk about the many choices available to you.

Contact your local Arbor cemetery representative to find out more about the many burial, cremation and memorialization options specific to that location.
