When you choose to have your loved one cremated, holding a traditional funeral service is one of the options offered by First Memorial Funeral Services in Ottawa. This memorial service begins with a private visitation or viewing with the family a day or two before the scheduled funeral date or the day of the funeral.
This private time is a way for families to say goodbye to their loved one for the final time and ease the grieving process.
There are a number of locations to hold your traditional funeral, including:
- Services at the funeral home
- Your local church
- A location of your choice
Keep in mind that the number of attendees may affect the location where you choose to hold your funeral services.
After the service, the casket will then be taken to the crematorium. A reception is often held afterward and can be hosted at our funeral home, or at another location of your choosing.
