Woodland Cemetery - Direct Cremation Services
Woodland Cemetery is London's first cremation expert. In 1964, with the opening of the first crematorium in the City of London, Woodland was the first cemetery to offer cremation as an option to our families.
As of May 9th, 2016, Woodland Cemetery once again became a leader in providing cremation services. Becoming the first cemetery in the Province of Ontario to be granted a license to operate a Direct Cremation Company on cemetery ground. A tremendous benefit to the families we serve.
Now, with direct cremation services, your final wishes can take place exclusively on Woodland Cemetery's grounds, an affordable and beautiful environment to be at peace. Whether your reason are financial or emotional, direct cremation services from Woodland Cemetery are simple, respectful, and dignified.
What is Direct Cremation?
Direct cremation is a simple and graceful alternative to a traditional funeral. As a result, many of the costs of a traditional funeral are avoided.
- The body is cremated in a short period time after death. This means you deal directly with the cemetery to engage the services of our crematorium. A funeral home is not needed, significantly reducing costs.
- The deceased is usually cremated in a simple container, rather than an expensive casket.
- There is no service, visitation, or wake before the cremation. This means you don't have to pay to use a visitation room at a funeral home. It also eliminates any need for embalming and/or other preparations of the deceased.
- A memorial service can be held at a later date, at a time and place of your choosing.
How do I Arrange a Direct Cremation at Woodland Cemetery?
