From our Smithfield Funeral home, we have been offering our clients respectful funeral services for over 150 years.
Our family-run funeral home provides services designed to help eliminate the stress of planning a funeral.
We assist in all aspects of the funeral, from start to finish. The arrangements for a funeral are not just about the person who has passed away. Funerals are an opportunity for all of the deceased’s family and friends to say their final farewell.
We implore individuals to discuss any additional requests with our team.
These requests can include playing a special song, a request to pass by the deceased family home, favourite flowers or charity donations in lieu of flowers.
