The leader in basic cremation


See what our valued families have had to say about the personal service received at A Basic Cremation Inc. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email us at, and we would be happy to help.

no pressure

Preston, I just wanted to drop you a note to say a HUGE “Thank You” for helping us at such a difficult time — not once but TWICE in the last 6 weeks. When families deal with such sadness, your compassion and professionalism are appreciated and welcomed, and words can’t express our gratitude. A dear friend went thru a death at the same time we were and used a competitor and paid $500 more for EXACTLY the same service, using exactly the same crematorium and selecting the urn from the same catalogue as you use. $500 !!!! And they had to go pick up the ashes whereas you delivered them to us. With you, everything was included in the price, and there was no pressure to “up sell,” and we really appreciated that. Once again……… we thank you, and we will be passing your name along to anyone that will listen so that they have it ready when it’s needed and doesn’t get ripped off by the competition.

caring compassion

Thank you for taking such good care of my Mom & her remains. Your caring compassion was deeply appreciated during this difficult time. The urn is beautiful. Thanks also for your suggestion for a restaurant. We had a wonderful Memorial Dinner, just like my brother & I remember when we were kids. It was all so good & the manager gave us such attention. Thanks again for everything.

– Judy B. & Family, Port Moody, BC

kind and gentle way

 Thank you for taking care of my brother Bernard. I very much appreciated your kind & gentle way. 

– Annie Q., Toronto, ON

accommodating and flexible

We wanted to stay away from the big-name corporate providers where there is too much emphasis on the bottom line. Preston was very accommodating and flexible, and we appreciated his professional yet personal manner very much. You will find Preston’s services financially reasonable and him to be an honest service provider. We opted for a little bit more than “basic,” and he was definitely able to provide that service as well. I highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks again, Preston.


– Bill Y., Vancouver, BC

Refreshing Professionals

 Thank you for all your help with my mother’s cremation. It is refreshing to see a professional like yourself at work. We will certainly recommend your services to others should the opportunity arise. 

– Humphrey T., Coquitlam, BC

wonderful service

 Your services were just wonderful. You helped a lot, thank you. I had to call & thank the facility Chaplain for mentioning your service & to let them know how good you are. 

– Norma B., Surrey, BC

no surprises

 I almost made a mistake & went with one of the other cremation providers. The turning point for me was a surprise $300 surcharge when I needed help. Preston Webb provided my family all the services he said he would – & then some. There were no surprises, just a high level of professional service. Preston, thanks again for your help during a time of need. 

– Jim W.K., North Vancouver, BC

Life’s Difficult Tasks

 A little note of special thanks for your most caring, compassionate and capable services in our recent bereavement. You made it so easy to deal with one of the most difficult tasks life confronts us with. I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone I may find needing this help. Thank you so much for your most professional service. 

– Joy G., Maple Ridge, BC

Professional Manner

Preston, thank you very much for your caring & professional manner, I am happy that my father had the final arrangements (a basic cremation) he wanted.

Heartfelt thanks

Thank you so much for your follow-up call; it reinforced what I already knew, which is that you are a thoroughly decent and professional person, and I am so glad we found you when we needed someone in a very difficult time! Our late friend lived her faith to the fullest, and I know that she would have totally approved of the person we selected to handle her remains with dignity and in a spirit of Christian fellowship. Our heartfelt thanks! God bless!
