Estimate Funeral Costs in Toronto
When you are trying to calculate the total or average cost of a funeral there are a few items to consider. What type of funeral are you looking to have for you loved one? Would you like to have a “traditional” type funeral where there is public or private visitation, a formal or informal service, and a public gathering of friends and family with the loved one present?
Or would you rather have a private service with only immediate family? Perhaps a private cremation or private graveside service would be easier to handle and would create a meaningfully intimate farewell.
Would you like to say goodbye after sometime has passed? Perhaps have a cremation first and hold a celebration in memory of the loved one later where friends and family can share fond stories and memories maybe a few cocktails.
