Funeral Home Testimonials

Quite often, we get thank you notes and cards from the families we’ve served. Each of these heartfelt messages means more to us than we can express here, because it affirms the fact that we are doing what we set out to do - to provide area families with affordable, thorough and compassionate care for burial and cremation options.

Our Promise
Compassion, competence and respect will be extended by our team, from the moment you contact us.  Our services to you and your family do not end when we respectfully transfer the cremated remains into your hands or as we finish a ceremony or gathering or at a grave site.  We are always available as a resource for assistance with the paperwork or anything further that you may require moving forward.
 

"Bruce recently invited me to celebrate the life as a Celebrant for one of their families. It was an absolutely beautiful experience. As a funeral director myself, I was beyond impressed with not only their attention to detail, but the compassion that exuded from both Bruce and Holly. They were an awesome blend of professionalism and experience, and 'relatable' in nature. My family (their family) praised them for everything, including how easy they made everything. Truly a pleasure to work along with them, and I look forward to another chance to serve a family together. Thank you for giving me a test run! I appreciated your trust and confidence."
Natalie Proulx, Celebrant & Funeral Director

"Attentive, prompt, compassionate, patient, well-informed, no pressure service.  I'll always be grateful for the excellent care received after my Mom passed away and for pre-planning for my Dad.  Thank you so much for making a difficult time a little bit easier."

"I would like to thank Holly and Bruce for their compassion, guidance and professionalism before and after the death of my beloved father.  They both completely respected his wishes and were amazing.  I would recommend Considerate Cremation & Burial Services Inc. to anyone.  The best experience under the worst circumstance!  Thank you!"
Jaime Venus-Moore, daughter of Charles Robert Venue

.............................

"My father was terminal and we decided to prepay for his services.  Having known Mr. McClelland as long as I have we selected on Considerate Cremation & Burial Services.  As strange as it was with him still alive beside me as we ironed out details, Bruce's voice was very soothing & comforting.  Certain requirements due to our beliefs were carried out to the letter.  The morning my father passed away, Bruce and his people arrived promptly and removed my father with the utmost decency & respect.  He responded to me within minutes on social media when I needed comfort.  The staff definitely go over and above to ease your pain.  Recommended in the highest degree."

Lisanne, daughter of Anthony "Tony" Bond

"Considerate Cremation & Burial Services was recommended to me by someone in the industry that knew Holly.  I am so grateful that she pointed me in the direction of Considerate Cremation & Burial Services.  Holly was very helpful and understanding.  The word compassionate is what I would use to describe Holly and the staff at Considerate Cremation & Burial Services.  They are not pushy and they understand that you are likely under a ton of stress and time constraints while you are trying to make decisions.  They help you understand any paperwork and next steps.  The office is very peaceful and welcoming.  I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about them; they are the best.  I have recommend them to family and friends. I would choose them again. They have experience and they truly care."

Thank you again Holly and Bruce.  Kind regards."

"With the recent passing of our dad, Bruce and the team at Considerate Cremation made the difficulty of this time a little easier. His compassion and knowledge were exemplary.  Our family met with him at their facility and he took as much time as we needed to review all elements of the cremation process itself and provided helpful guidance on all of the other things that needed to be done after the fact. This included a list of forms and contacts required to ensure all provincial and federal agencies, etc. were promptly notified.  The office is tastefully decorated to provide a comfortable and calm environment. Their pricing is extremely fair. The communication and any follow-up was thorough and we were left with a very positive customer experience.  Thank you for everything,"
Sara, daughter of Howard Parker

"I called a few days ago on behalf on a friend who had just lost his brother. I spoke to Holly and asked her to ask Bruce to call my friend. Bruce called back within minutes. They have taken care of all the details and even taken care of some formalities, fetched my friend as he is unable to drive due to his failing eyesight and listened as his grief has had him meandering down memory lane. His brother was his last remaining family member. It is not often that in the fast paced, "show me the money first" world that we live in, that a business actually puts people, their financial situation and emotional well-being first. Compassion, affordability and caring are what they are all about. When they say they care, they really do mean it. Thank you!"

You were always reaching out and offering to help and taking care of the little details.  The ideas and the suggestions that Holly and Bruce gave were greatly appreciated and followed exactly what we wanted for our family. Our dad's wishes have been fulfilled! Thank you for everything you have done for our family. We highly commend and would certainly recommend Considerate Cremation & Burial Services to anyone."
Irene McNarry, Colleen McNarry-Wilson and Mike McNarry 
.............................
 
"I cannot put into words how appreciative my family and I are for the first rate experience we had with you over the last few days.

"Bruce, firstly, please allow me to thank you and Holly for your sincere kindness throughout my recent ordeal.  The passing of my dear wife, Susan Paczuski on Oct 16, 2017, was by far the hardest thing I have ever endured.  The ethics of your company coupled with your professionalism, patience and dedication to details made it such what I could move ahead knowing that my 'Sweetie' was being looked after in a most caring manner.  For that I am forever grateful."
To all your future and prospective clients, I leave this message:  "Folks, you will never find anyone better suited to the task of looking after your needs than these two individuals.  During your time of stress, confusion and ultimate sorrow, you can put all your trust in these kind souls.  My heart goes out to all of you as you face your most difficult journey.
With utmost sincerely,"
Marcel Clement, husband of Susan Paczuski
