Cremation

Cremation can be a lower-cost alternative to burial, and provides a great deal of  flexibility in planning meaningful celebrations of life. Bear Creek Funeral Home owns and operates the only onsite crematorium in the Alberta Peace Country.

The Cremation Centre at Bear Creek Funeral Home truly sets us apart in the Peace Country. Our cremations are always completed by a licensed professional at our onsite crematorium, which means that your loved one is always in good hands.

At Bear Creek Funeral Home, you can spend the time you need with your loved one immediately before cremation occurs. Our beautifully-appointed Cremation Centre provides a peaceful, comfortable setting for you and your family as you say a final good-bye. Families appreciate the opportunity to incorporate the traditions of a private graveside service into a ceremonial cremation, rather than a large celebration of life. Whatever suits you and your family is now an option in Grande Prairie.

Did you know that you can use meaningful items in place of a cremation urn?

We will help you select the perfect item that honours a life in a very unique way. As a woodworker and artist, Doug has customized pieces upon request by families and has assisted families in creating their own urns from a variety of items and materials. Families may also choose to bring in a vessel that reminds them of their loved one, for the most fitting place of final rest.
