When a cherished friend or family member passes away, organizing their memorial or funeral services can be overwhelming. It’s common for several individuals to collaborate in planning, dividing tasks to ease the burden during this period of grief.

Upon the passing of a loved one, the initial step is to inform close friends and family members of the loss. Following this, it’s essential to arrange for the transportation of the deceased from their place of passing to the facilities of Grand River Cremation, our trusted funeral service staff in Guelph, Ontario.
After the deceased is transported to our facilities, it’s crucial to schedule a meeting with our compassionate staff. During this consultation, you and your family members can discuss and decide upon the type of memorial and burial services that best honor the departed. This includes determining whether burial or cremation is preferred.
Choosing appropriate containers for the remains is an important consideration in funeral planning. At Grand River Cremation, we offer a variety of options, including traditional caskets, burial vaults, and urns for those opting for cremation. Families also could select grave markers or niches to personalize the memorial.
For those choosing interment in a cemetery, it’s essential to discuss arrangements with the chosen cemetery. This involves determining the appropriate housing for the remains, such as mausoleums or columbarium’s for cremated remains, or plots and crypts for casket interments. Our team at Grand River Cremation will assist you in navigating these decisions with care and sensitivity.

The commencement of estate proceedings is typically overseen by an executor named in the deceased’s will. If no executor is designated, one may be appointed by the probate court as necessary.

Arrangements should be made to settle any outstanding bills or financial obligations left behind by the deceased.
Following the death of a loved one, it’s essential to contact relevant parties such as insurance providers, Social Security administration, unions, and other pertinent organizations to file necessary claims.
In addition to managing financial matters, it’s important to notify relevant parties such as the deceased’s employer, religious institutions, fraternal organizations, and other social groups they were affiliated with.
After the loss of a loved one, it’s crucial to update the status of joint accounts, including bank accounts, credit cards, mortgages, loans, and other accounts held with financial institutions.
