Our Burial Services

Our traditional burial services are created to acknowledge the religious or spiritual beliefs of the deceased while at the same time honouring their life. Generally, a member of the clergy or other person chosen by the family conducts this type of service. We encourage the active participation of the family in helping plan this part of the service. Many times family members take part by giving a reading, singing or assisting the clergy.

If the ceremony is held in a church, there is no additional charge.

Traditional burial services may be the following:

  • Casket
  • Transfer of the deceased to the funeral home
  • Embalming
  • Dressing, cosmetology and other care of the deceased
  • Professional support and administrative staff assistance
  • Use of visitation rooms
  • General use of the facilities for the service and arrangements
  • Funeral service
  • Use of funeral coach
  • Limousine
  • Administration vehicle
  • Register book
  • Acknowledgment cards
  • Memorial folders or prayer cards

These items are just a sample of the options that we can provide you.  For more information about all of our burial service options, please call us at (604) 298-2525 or visit us at 4276 Hastings Street in Burnaby.

Understanding Burial Services

Here at Bell & Burnaby Funeral Chapel, we have the deepest respect for this traditional practice. If you are interested in learning more about the burial services we offer, please review the following information. Should you have questions about anything, please call us at (604) 298-2525.

There are many things to consider when deciding whether to bury a recently-deceased loved one, or when selecting burial during funeral pre-planning. One of the first decisions you'll need to make involves choosing both the cemetery and the specific place of burial within its grounds. You'll then need to select a casket and possibly a burial vault, as many modern cemeteries require their use. At some point, and this does not have to take place right away, the decision becomes one of selecting the headstone or marker and writing the inscription.

An Open Invitation

We offer a number of affordable burial service options. They range from: simple burials where only a member of our staff oversees the interment; simple graveside services led by a minister or celebrant; and a traditional funeral service followed by burial. Each can be tailored to meet the needs and expectations of today's price-conscious families.
