Latest from our blog

The majority of us are all wondering the same things when it comes to funeral planning, death and how to deal with the loss of a loved one or trying to plan your own final wishes! That is why the staff at Serenity Funeral Service have created a blog. Our blog is a place where you can get answers to questions such as; how to write an obituary, what to do in a funeral procession, and what are your duties as an executor. If your questions are regarding your own funeral planning, we have you covered as well. With everything from; funeral merchandise- such as types of caskets (coffins), cremation containers and urns, to available (and unavailable) methods of disposition- burial, cremation or green cremation, to aid in your funeral planning. Serenity is more than a funeral home or funeral service provider- we are also a resource center!

Not necessarily looking for resources regarding funeral planning, funeral services, cremation, merchandise, planning ahead or what to do after the funeral? The blog is still a great place to check out our upcoming events, ways we are involved with the community and various charitable causes that we are apart of.

Away From Home Protection

It’s stressful enough when someone you love dies. But when death occurs away from home, your survivors are faced with added stress and are likely incapable and without any idea what to do.

Each year we are contacted by families desperately seeking our expertise to administrate and coordinate the safe return of a family member who died unexpectedly while away from home.

More often than not, the person who died didn’t have coverage protection for the unthinkable

Although we do specialize in repatriation services and have the expertise for an efficient and safe return of a deceased person – there are a few things you need to be aware of:

  • The cost for services provided by a funeral home in another city or another country is out of our control
  • Consular service and fees are determined by each consulate
  • Transportation fees and costs of a deceased person varies among airlines and are out of the funeral home’s control
  • You must determine whether the deceased had insurance that will cover preparations and repatriation of the deceased back home to Canada. Otherwise, someone else will be responsible for the costs; unfortunately some families have been faced with settling for local burial or direct disposition where death occurred.
