Behind the Scene of the Funeral Home


In an effort to help families understand the steps that are necessary in order to make final arrangements, whether when a death occurs or to plan ahead, Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services offers informative educational seminars.

These helpful presentations will give you a better understanding of what is involved when making final arrangements: the legal requirements and the practical considerations. Once you have attended these seminars, you will be better informed and able to make decisions that are appropriate for you and your family, no matter which funeral services provider you choose.

Our seminars provide attendees with ample time to ask questions during the presentation, and if preferred, our presenter will remain on site after the seminar for private questions. In addition, you will also be provided with information handouts.

We provide these educational seminars for both the general public and our allied professionals, including clergy, social workers, palliative care staff, hospices, and seniors residents ranging from independent living residences to long term care facilities. In addition, we provide the seminars at no charge and will come to your neighbourhood from Horseshoe Bay to Hope.

Here’s an example of recent and upcoming seminars:
June 2012 Municipal Pension Retirees Association – Langley Chapter
July 2012 Rotary Club – New Westminster
