Where to Begin
Funeral services can be unfamiliar territory for many, with various processes, costs, and products involved that are unknown and often difficult to discuss. Our intention is to ease feelings of uncertainty by providing clear and concise information about the services we offer.
The Arrangement Process
Upon request for services, one of our licensed funeral directors will need to meet with the deceased’s authorized legal representative to begin the process of making arrangements. If the deceased has a will in place the “executor” is the individual responsible for making the arrangements and signing the documentation. If there is not an existing will, the funeral director must determine the legal next of kin as outlined by the “order of priority” under British Columbia’s Cremation Interment and Funeral Services Act. The funeral director will gather information about your loved one and family’s wishes, are they for burial or cremation services? The funeral director collects personal information about the deceased (vital statistics information) such as the date and location of birth, healthcare and social insurance numbers as well as their primary occupation. This information is used to register the death with British Columbia’s Vital Statistics Agency which then allows the funeral provider to generate the required documentation, including the original death certificate.
