Meeting With the Funeral Home

Generally, within the first 24 hours of a death occurring, you will need to meet with a funeral director to begin the funeral arrangements. This will be a difficult time for you and your loved ones. Chapel Ridge Funeral Home staff will be there to guide you in making decisions and help make this difficult time a little bit easier.

Chapel Ridge Funeral Home & Cremation Centre in Markham can be reached by phone at 905-305-8508. Speak to a Funeral Director to begin the process. 

Who Will Make the Decisions?

Deciding on your loved one's final goodbye will always be emotionally challenging, but we are here to make it as easy as possible for you and your family. Our knowledgeable staff will help you in providing the answers to any and all questions you may have. They will help you understand what is involved in planning a funeral and be there to support you in any way you need. Something you will need to think about is who will be making the decisions? Will it be you? Will it be someone with you at the funeral home?

In Ontario law, the executor or estate administrator of the deceased person's will has the legal authority to make funeral arrangements. In most families, a consensus is developed among surviving spouses, adult children, etc., but in some cases there can be differences of opinion among family members. At a time of death, when emotions are already running high, it is not always easy to find consensus among family members. That is one good reason we encourage people to pre-arrange and pre-pay their funerals. When family members know what kind of funeral you want, 99% of the time they will honour your wishes and proceed with your pre-arrangements.

Who Else is Involved in the Arrangements?

Does the deceased have children, friends, family who would like to be a part of arranging the funeral? Do you know how the deceased felt about funerals or what his or her final wishes were? You and your loved ones know the deceased best and Chapel Ridge Funeral Home will work with you to help celebrate and honour your loved one's memory.

Do you have the information gathered for the paperwork?

When a death occurs, it may be helpful to gather a few documents that will be needed.

Documents needed when a death has occurred:

  • Account Statements of the deceased
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Beneficiary Designations
  • Last Will and Testament and any Codicils
  • Revocable Living Trust
  • Marriage Certificate/ Statutory Declaration of Common-Law Union
  • Birth Certificate/ Citizenship Card
  • SIN Number of Deceased, and if applicable the deceased's surviving spouse or common-law partner
