We take care of approximately 400 families a year who choose cremation ¾ of the time. We’re not perfect, but we have a good work/life balance, a caring and invested family-run management team, and an excellent reputation. We were shocked to learn that the average length of time in funeral service in Ontario is 5 years; ours is 24 years! Go to jamesreidfuneralhome.com to see what our experience of funeral service is.
