Peterborough's Most Beautiful Cemeteries and Funeral Home
Pre-Planning Funeral Arrangements
Your services can be arranged and paid for in advance, saving your family additional stress at a difficult time. Advance payments are placed in trust. Services are guaranteed at any time in the future. If the cost of providing the service is more than the original payment (including accrued interest) Highland Park Funeral Centre and Highland Park Cemetery & Crematorium Home will pay the difference. If the cost of providing the service is less than the original payment (including accrued interest) Highland Park Funeral Centre and Highland Park Cemetery & Crematorium will refund the difference to the estate.
By making your arrangements in advance your family and friends are relieved of the emotional difficulties associated with planning what you would have wanted for your funeral arrangements.
Our non-commissioned sales staff will provide you with a free quote at your convenience. You sign nothing until you're absolutely comfortable.
