The Irvine Family over the years observed changing preferences in our community including an increased request for cremation. To better address the needs of families they wanted to ensure that this service was locally available and in 2002 established Roselawn Crematorium. Prior to this, the choice of cremation for area families involved transportation out of town, in some cases to rather industrial-styled facilities.
We are proud to be the only area provider with our own crematorium. Families entrusting cremation arrangements to our firm are pleased to know that their loved one is always cared for by our own dedicated and experienced staff from beginning to end. Ours is a private facility, and even though others may advertise cremation services, we are the only firm in the region with our own crematorium facility.
Housed within the Irvine Memorial Chapel and Reception Centre at Roselawn Memorial Gardens, our crematorium was designed to meet the present day needs of families. It incorporates an adjacent family room for a private farewell prior to cremation. For those who wish, witnessing of the commencement of cremation is possible. The most up-to-date environmental monitoring is also incorporated in order that cremation is carried out with strict environmental controls. Our facility is open to inspection and we welcome you to visit to see our difference for yourself.
|Eastern Ontario's most modern cremation facility|
Many families are pleased to learn that now cremation can occur right here in our own community. Located just outside of Brockville at Maitland the Roselawn Crematorium is a state of the art facility designed with families and the environment in mind.
Unlike older crematories which are rather industrial in design, the Roselawn Crematorium provides a more dignified facility designed with families in mind. Families who need greater peace of mind may even witness the cremation process from the adjacent witnessing room.
|Cremation and the Environment|
Many choose cremation for environmental reasons. Roselawn is one of a small number of Ontario crematories to have incorporated sophisticated monitoring equipment. This allows our crematory technicians to carefully monitor the process to ensure provincially required operating requirements are maintained at all time.
While cremation can be carried out privately, it is always an option for the family to gather prior to the cremation. In some cases this has provided for a private farewell before cremation. In other cases, families have requested to be present as cremation commences. We have provided a well appointed family room adjacent to our crematorium where these important needs can be met.
