What to Look for in a Funeral Home

funeral home

Whether you’re looking to pre-plan your funeral, or are looking for a facility after a loved one has passed away, you want to choose the right funeral home for your needs.

When researching facilities, consider the following:


Look for local funeral homes in your community, or the community the deceased lived in. For example, Chapel Ridge Funeral Home and Cremation Centre is located in Markham, Ontario, and serves clients in York Region and across the GTA.

Search for a funeral home that serves the area you would like to have the funeral in.  Next, make sure the facility has ample parking and is easy to find for out-of-town guests.


Once you’ve established the location you’d like to have the funeral, you need to find a facility that can hold the number of guests you anticipate having. Chapel Ridge has one of Ontario’s largest funeral chapels, and can accommodate large groups. We also host smaller funerals and memorials – whatever suits your needs during this difficult time.


The most important factor when choosing a funeral home is the services they offer. Look for a funeral home that offers a variety of services, from pre-arrangements to burials to memorials.
