The Mundell Funeral Home offers a full range of services from immediate cremation or burial to memorial services and traditional funeral services involving visitation, funeral, reception services and facilities.
Below are some of the additional services we provide. Every arrangement is unique, so please feel free to contact any of our licensed funeral directors to discuss your options in more detail.
Celebrating A Life
"Funerals are most meaningful when they are personalized tributes to the unique life and relationships of the person who has died" - well known Grief Educator Dr. Alan Wolfelt
Traditional hymns? Classical Music? Rock n Roll? Soloist? Pianist? Bagpiper? CDs? We are happy to accommodate all requests. As well, our chapel is equipped with a beautiful electronic baby grand piano. You are welcome to supply your own music and/or musician or we will arrange all of the details for you.
Having a friend, family member or clergy prepare and present a personal tribute can add significant meaning to a service
We can create a customized, online memorial for you to share with family and friends. The memorial includes the obituary and any photographs you wish to provide. It will serve as a place for visitors to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, and light candles in honour of your loved one.
A memory table can be used to display meaningful items such as golf clubs, a musical instrument, knitting needles, awards or certificates, motorcycle jacket, fishing pole... A personalized display can help stir positive memories of the life lived and promote the sharing of stories.
Families are welcome to make picture collages to display within the funeral home during the visitation, service, and reception. At no charge, we provide the framed board(s) as well as proper easels for display.
We can produce a personal tribute video that can be played at the service and online. Simply provide us with the photographs you want to include and we will transform them into a video celebration of your treasured memories. DVDs or digital files of the video are also available.
Funeral Fund Donations
We realize the expense of a funeral can be a burden. We provide the option for friends and family to make monetary donations to help cover funeral costs. These gifts can be made easily and securely online through our website, and are paid directly to the funeral home on behalf of the donor.
We make it easy for friends and family to send flowers to your home or service to honour your loved one. We have partnered with local florists to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page of our website. You can also use this feature to select the flowers you would like at the service. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home.
Sharing Service Details
We reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the service for your loved one. We post the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your Facebook or Twitter page or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it.
Daily Grief Support Emails
We offer one year of free daily grief support emails to the families we serve. It is important to us that we continue to comfort our families through the difficult days that the first year of grieving can bring.
In addition to such efforts as the use of energy saving light bulbs, biodegradable cleaning products and a dedicated recycling program, we offer green merchandise options. These alternative choices are certified and approved by the Green Burial Council (www.greenburialcouncil.org) and include a selection of urns, caskets, and stationery.
We offer a large selection, including single urns, companion urns, keepsake urns, biodegradeable urns, and urns designed for water or ground scattering.
Personalization through engraving names, dates as well as various images onto an urn can add to the personalization of the visitation and/or service.
We provide a full line of stationery items including register books, keepsake memory cards, prayer cards, orders of service and thank you cards. The stationery can be personalized with text including various languages as well as photos or images that may be meaningful.
