I just wanted to send a quick note to THANK YOU at Elements cremation, pre-planning & burial for all your help with dad’s funeral. It was so nice for Terry, Larry and I that you took care of literally everything for us.From booking the venue for the service, the minister, ordering the flowers and the caterer, and creating our handout, all in the span of 4 days!The process was seamless for us, which was so needed at this sad time.It was also very kind of you to check in during the week to keep us updated on the progress, which took any worry away from us.Not having to deal with the details and make phone calls at the time was huge!!It is so nice to know that there is such a great option available at what would normally be a very stressful time.So, thank you from all of us for your great service.
Take care,Wendy Purcha for Terry, Larry and Wendy

With the passing of Dad earlier this month, we were faced with the daunting task of dealing with his affairs, without any pre-planning. That direction was simple - go to the local funeral home. Well, if you’ve never done that before, it is a horrific, overwhelming, emotionally-charged event. At a time of vulnerability, the staff (generally speaking) are charged with helping the client deal with those affairs, be it burial or cremation. It is their job and the business, but I found it to be completely a capitalist effort. I would never deny anyone the right to earn a living, or a business to earn profit, but what I was experiencing, and quite honestly, ready to sign off on, was the cost of a car! Fortunately for me, I had the presence of mind to ask my wife to come along. Having had some experience in this arena, her wisdom and unclouded mind played a critical role in stopping that purchase.
With one text to a very dear friend, we were connected with Greg from ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL. THAT NIGHT, he came to my home, sat with us at our table and had everything settled in about an hour and half, FOR 1/5 OF WHAT THE OTHERS WERE PREPARED TO TAKE FROM US!
ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL is more than a funeral service. They do “life planning” - anything that you or a loved one needs to better their lives, all the way to final rest.
call them before anyone else to find out how they can take care of you or your loved one(s).

Our family has been blessed to work with Jeremy and Greg from ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL during a difficult and emotional time.
In our extended family, we’ve unfortunately had other family members suffer with illnesses that have resulted in a few of our loved ones passing away - most recently our beloved mom.
We found ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL to be the perfect balance between professional service and personal support. Greg and Jeremy were very receptive with the family’s way of communication through digital channels and in-person. Since we all had busy schedules, we appreciated the after hours visits, calls, and texts. They were extremely accommodating over the planning period and were a tremendous resource for follow-up questions.
They also provided us with step-by-step guidance throughout the entire process. We fully appreciated the great attention-to-detail and thoroughness of the paperwork while HONOuRING our requests and respecting our traditions. We were also grateful with how they handled our mother with integrity, from her pickup and preparation to her service and cremation.
In addition to the great emotional support, we found ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL to also be extremely professional and very affordable in the options they offered us with their wide external network of resources (flowers, catering, HD streaming, and urn options).
While our extended family has depended on ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL on three previous occasions, we were very pleased with our personal experience with them. We have already recommended them to family and friends and will continue to do so going forward!
Thank you Greg, Jeremy & team for your support and friendship during this time.

Dear Jeremy & Brigitte
Thank you for you professionalism and sensitivity while discussing the death of my brother Bill.
Also, thank you for having his cremation done on time for us to be able to take his ashes and urn home to Winnipeg. We decided that Bill had not been a prairie boy for approximately 37-38 years. Bill liked trees and the Tree of Life urn turned out to be the most appropriate one.
Thank you, Bev Owens & Family
To Brigitte and Elements Cremation, Pre-Planning & Burial,
I would like to say a huge thank you to Elements Cremation, Pre-Planning & Burial. When you are grieving and at a loss after losing a loved one, you are so vulnerable, uncertain and utterly confused. What do you do next? To whom do you turn? What do funerals cost, how is it done? And can you trust anyone in the funeral business? Will they up-sell you, or insist on certain extras?
I can honestly say that Elements Cremation, Pre-Planning & Burial have done a fabulous job for my family and I. They addED a calming, professional strength to our meeting. We were gently shown how each step will proceed. You can feel how they share in your grief and sorrow, And there is no insistence on buying bigger or more expensive items. It’s so hard to say goodbye to your loved ones and Brigitte and Jeremy are awesome at guiding you along. They will find a way to customize each and every “farewell” so that you feel that it’s done properly, uniquely and lovingly.
Thanks, Kirsten Graham
Elements Cremation, Pre-planning & Burial should be commended for its compassion to humans and their loved ones. A brief visit from loved ones is always welcomed.
What a wonderful funeral home Elements Cremation, Pre-planning & Burial is. Just true compassion.
Bravo to Elements Cremation, Pre-planning & Burial and it's President Jeremy May who genuinely understands the meaning of Family Grief .... Best Wishes and GOD Bless all ..
I was introduced to Elements Cremation, Pre-Planning & Burial by a trust-worthy social worker who was concerned about my mental and financial status. On my first meeting with Jeremy and Wayne, I was left with an overall good impression due to their sincerity and professionalism. Their consistency to show consideration, open-mindedness, and flexibility overcame many challenges such as restricted time and personal conflict. It eased my mind to have the required support, and I appreciate their undying efforts to guide me through the entire process.I am beyond satisfied with their delivery.
As a young adult, I was overwhelmed by the exposure of government-related content aft
er my mother's passing. However, Jeremy and Wayne took the initiative to reach out and support me, which made the process all the more bearable. Their professional advice has undeniably made me feel more secure, confident, and independent.I am truly grateful to be surrounded by good-hearted people during this crucial time. I learned, adapted, and developed with a kind and supportive environment. I would not hesitate to recommend ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL to those in need.
I am honoured to write this recommendation for Jeremy May and Brigitte of Elements Cremation Preplanning and Burial Services.
When I met Jeremy and Brigitte for the first time, I was a little concerned that they did not have the typical funeral home set up that I knew to be funeral home services. They explained that if they had the traditional building all funerals would need to fit into their space. Instead, they source venues tailored to your specific needs as some gatherings are larger than others. Their logic made sense to me and we secured their services.
First and foremost, they provided my son a beautiful, thoughtful and elegant funeral and burial.
The support we received throughout the process was exceptional and our decisions were respected. Jeremy and Brigitte ensured all the moving parts were brought together seamlessly and the process was transparent throughout.
My email inquiries were responded to quickly and I was contacted with updates and reminders from time to time (which was helpful under the circumstances).
Prior to and after the funeral, Jeremy provided us with the logistical direction we needed to ensure there was no confusion during the ceremony and through the burial process.
Jeremy and Brigitte were professional and courteous and even after all the funeral business was complete, they took the time to sit with us to get to know my son just a little bit better.
I am very impressed with the service we received. I would highly recommend Elements Cremation Pre-planning and Burial and would trust them to handle any future services my loved ones may require.

Jeremy and his team at ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL were so helpful and understanding, through last minute changes due to people coming from a distance, to the quiet and peaceful service that my husband had requested.
Particularly helpful were the arrangements they made for travelling of ashes to another country, with correct documents and packaging. Even to the repackaging of my long deceased son. So that at last I was able to take him home.
Will be forever grateful.
ELEMENTS CREMATION, PRE-PLANNING & BURIAL was recommended to me by a friend who had used their services, and when my sister in law died, I contacted them and they sent someone out to me immediately. From first contact, up to the cremation, and throughout the whole process, I was treated with kindness, sensitivity and compassion. I was so impressed that I have already pre-planned my own funeral with Elements. It gives me a huge amount of comfort to know that I have chosen the best to help my family when the time comes.
Thank you Elements for making the whole funeral and cremation process much less painful.
Not once, not twice but three times now, I have had to reach out to Jeremy May and his team AT ELEMENTS Cremation, Pre-Planning & Burial for assistance with final arrangements of a loved one. On every occasion, we went through that rush of overwhelming grief and stress of next steps and on every single occasion Jeremy tactfully, professionally and caringly guided us through the process of of final arrangements and putting myself and my family members at ease. I would, without hesitation, highly recommend, Jeremy May and the Elements team to those who have suffered a loss and are looking for someone to guide them through the process of final arrangements and putting their loved one to rest.
Elements was referred to us by a family friend during a difficult time. Jeremy and the team made majority the arrangements and it made our family focus on being there for each other. They are very professional and compassionate.
