What services are provided at this Nakusp funeral home?
We offer the assistance of our compassionate funeral directors—specialized professionals trained and experienced in helping families cope with the death of a loved one.

They also make arrangements for transporting the body and completing necessary legal paperwork, all while carrying out your choices regarding the funeral service and disposition of the body.
What purpose does a funeral serve?
A funeral is an opportunity to pay tribute to someone you love. For those who are left behind, a funeral provides a place for family and friends to gather and support one another. It is an opportunity to celebrate the life and accomplishments of a loved one, and a starting point from which the grief-healing process may begin.
Can I still have a funeral service in Nakusp if I choose cremation?
Absolutely. Cremation is not intended to replace a traditional funeral service. It is simply an alternative to a burial or entombment of the body of the deceased. You can still have a traditional funeral service in a church, chapel, home or other location that you and the family feel is appropriate.
Is it necessary to have a casket for cremation in Nakusp?
No, it is not necessary to have a casket, but it is necessary to have a container of some kind. It is provincial law.
There are also many cremation containers or caskets available that are inexpensive and functional. You may select what is most appropriate for you and your budget. Some people choose to rent a casket with an inner container. And, in that case, only the inner container is cremated.
How much does a funeral cost?
The cost of a funeral is really determined by you and your family. Some expenses are basic to every funeral. Many expenses, however, are determined by the selections that you make. The amount you spend on a funeral should always be balanced by what you or the estate can afford. Before making a decision on the funeral director and the type of service you want, ask for an itemized quotation. This will enable you to compare costs without emotion and help you choose services that you feel are essential.
What is the difference between funeral pre-planning and pre-arranging?
Pre-planning is the process of selecting your choices of funeral arrangements in advance and having them on file at a funeral home, in your will and/or with your family.
Pre-arranging involves pre-payment of some or all of the funeral arrangements that you choose.
Preplanning your funeral relieves your loved ones from the burden of having to make difficult decisions at an emotional and stressful time. It also lets you share your feelings and wishes about various aspects of your funeral service and what you would like to happen with your remains. It’s an easy way to record your personal wishes and minimize the numerous details that need to be attended to at the time of grieving.
