Planning a cremation is never easy, but it doesn’t have to be expensive. At Evergreen Cremation Centre Ltd, it is our commitment to provide dignity and service excellence at a low cost, lower than the Memorial Society; honouring traditions and wishes of the family we serve at prices that are affordable and, the arrangements can be made in the comfort of your own home or at our central Ladysmith location. We also believe ALL BC Residents should be aware of Cremation and Burial Assistance programs.Families or individuals already receiving government assistance are generally pre-qualified, but ANYONE needing assistance can apply. We will assist you in this during our meeting.
My long time life partner was listed as palliative (cancer) with limited time left. I had the 'Notification of Expected Death in the Home' form on hand along with a DNR. I phoned Kevin who suggested filling out the on-line prearrangement form. It was filled out a few days before death and Kevin called me back and indicated that all is in place and we will deal with the paperwork afterwards (Very reassuring). When my spouse passed away at 04:00 I called Kevin at 04:30 to notify him as required by the form. I was asked compassionately how much time I needed. Then with a prearrangement phone call the 'Transfer Service' came, 2 professionally dressed men in full suits (at 06:30) to respectfully deal with some minor paperwork and transfer the body of my loved one. This all happened on the start of the Labour Day weekend. On Tuesday Kevin phoned to make an appointment the next day at my home to do the final paperwork. He then returned on Friday and met with me at home to deliver the ashes and death certificate. Everything was done at my home (wow). The whole experience, although emotional for me, was handled above my expectations and with such caring and exceptional service, beyond my expectations. And the total price was just over $1700. Based on my own experience I would highly recommend Kevin and Evergreen Cremation Centre for anyone in their time of Grief needing a Funeral Director.
