Vancouver’s Affordable and Caring Cremation Service

A Basic Cremation Inc. is a practical and lower-cost cremation service for those who do not want to pay the high funeral home fees or have a formal funeral or memorial service and may prefer to arrange a Memorial or Celebration of Life on their own.

If you are unable to complete and sign documents via email (or fax), we will come to your home for an additional fee, based on the distance and estimated return trip travelling time - Lower Mainland only, during business hours.
