Holy Cross Cremation Centre
Centrally located in the Diocese, in Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery on Governor's Road outside of Brantford, Holy Cross Catholic Cremation Centre is available to Catholics and their families as well as to people of other faiths and cultures. Families who wish to be present during cremation may use our comfortable waiting area. There is a viewing window so that the casket may be seen entering the "retort," or cremation chamber. There is also a spacious chapel area where committal services can be held.
We offer many ways to honour and remember your loved one.
A variety of upright and flat grave markers are available for purchase. We can also assist you with adding inscription to existing memorials.
Other memorial options include vigil lamps, vases, benches, trees, ceramic photos, and glass front niche decorations.
The Catholic Church believes that cremated human remains must be afforded the same respect as the non-cremated body, and placed in a dignified container. In keeping with this belief, we offer a variety of cremation urns for purchase.
