Des Trembles Cemetery & Funeral Complex helps you organize a cremation in Montreal.
This age-old ritual, present in many cultures, has become more democratic over the years. We offer assistance in planning a personalized cremation service that respects your beliefs, traditions and wishes.
Our teams are also there to guide you through our range of funeral services. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
During cremation, the casket and body of the deceased are exposed to a temperature of 1,000 to 1,200 degrees Celsius, which reduces them to ashes. This procedure, which is only performed for one person at a time, can take up to two hours.
Afterwards, the ashes are placed in a cinerary urn of the family's choice. There are many models, of different sizes and made of different materials.
After the cremation, you can either take the urn with you, keep it in our columbarium or bury it in our cemetery. To learn more about your options after a cremation in Montreal, read our blog post.
To allow family and friends to gather, a ceremony can be held in one of our halls or in our chapel to pay final respects to the deceased.
