Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services

From traditional funeral services to simple cremations—Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services

Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services began in Western Canada in 1992 as Personal Alternative Funeral Services.

The goal is to provide you with a comfortable, affordable and common sense alternative to the escalating costs found in many funeral homes.

Funeral directors

The fully licensed funeral directors and event planners will design and present theme proposals to the family and will preside over the order of service on your behalf.

The content of the event will be customized for your family and is often held in a unique facility or location relevant to the deceased’s life.

Read the following testimonial from one grateful client:

"Circumstances arose that made it necessary to utilize your services. We found Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services extremely satisfactory with none of the usual push to spend the hard-earned mighty dollar at a very vulnerable time. Thank you for that."—Mrs. Suba, Calgary, Alberta

Alternatives Event encourages involvement and participation.

Green caskets are available in willow, seagrass and bamboo for both burial and cremation.

Keepsakes are specialty items that allow you to both memorialize and carry with you a small portion of the ashes of your loved one.

We are unlike any other funeral home . . . Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services.
