The Dignity® Difference
When you choose a Dignity Memorial® provider, you not only receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment, but also the value you deserve from the largest network of funeral homes and cemeteries – including an array of services that is unmatched by any other funeral provider in North America.
Should you move more than 160 kilometres from where your original arrangements were made, your prearranged funeral services are fully transferable and will be honoured by any Dignity Memorial provider throughout North America.
Bereavement Travel Services
We provide the best available travel options throughout Canada and the U.S. and to many international destinations. On a moment’s notice, dedicated travel specialists will seek the best available airfares as well as hotel accommodations and car rentals for all family and friends to attend a funeral, cremation, memorial or graveside service. There is a nominal fee associated with the issuance of an airline ticket.
Child / Grandchild Protection Plan
Acknowledging that nothing can ease the pain of losing a child or grandchild, we offer financial relief for those who choose a Dignity Memorial Burial or Cremation Plan. We will provide funeral or cremation services, at no cost, at any Dignity Memorial provider, up to the level of the plan you have selected. The child or grandchild must be less than 21 years of age and unmarried.
100% Service Guarantee
Each Dignity memorial provider is committed to service beyond expectation before, during and after the service. To that end, we offer this guarantee: if there is anything we can do to meet your individual needs, please let us know and we will take care of it immediately.
Dignity Memorial Guidance Series
Dignity Memorial providers understand that the loss of a loved one is extremely difficult, as is the accompanying grief.
