Cremation Services and Crematorium in Ottawa

These days, more and more people are choosing cremation as an alternative to traditional burial. It was in 1963 that the Catholic Church recognized cremation as an option to dispose of human remains (Instruction Ad resurgendum cum Christo regarding the burial of the deceased and the conservation of the ashes in the case of cremation). Cremations are done on site at Hope Catholic Cemetery’s crematorium in Ottawa. This allows us to control the process according to the highest standards imposed by national and international regulators.

Subsequently, the remains are deposited in an urn. The urn may be placed in a niche in the columbarium or buried in a sacred place in a cemetery lot.

The Catholic Cremation Centre

Hope Cemetery Cremation Centre and crematorium was opened in 1990 to serve the growing interest in cremation. Located on Bank Street, Hope Catholic Cremation Centre is available to Catholics (and their families) as well as to people of other faiths and cultures.

We operate our cremation centre with the same respect and dignity for the body, an integral part of both our faith tradition and our overall philosophy.

We also provide urns, cremation niches and other products to honour the memory of your loved ones.

Families are Welcome

We allow family members to witness the beginning of the cremation process to a limited number of family members. We have a chapel on site where committal services can be held.

After the Cremation Process

Following cremation, options for interment include ground burial, entombment in an outdoor columbarium or in a niche inside a mausoleum. Our family counsellors can explain to you the details, including the difference in cost, associated with each option.
