Holy Cross Cremation CentreGetting to Know Holy Cross Cremation Centre
The first crematorium opened by The Diocese of Hamilton, Holy Cross Catholic Cremation Centre was opened in November 2003 to answer the growing interest in cremation.
Centrally located in the Diocese, in Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery on Governor's Road outside of Brantford, Holy Cross Catholic Cremation Centre is available to Catholics and their families as well as to people of other faiths and cultures.
Families who wish to be present during cremation may use our comfortable waiting area. There is a viewing window so that the casket may be seen entering the "retort," or cremation chamber. There is also a spacious chapel area where committal services can be held.
People choose cremation for many different reasons
- Cultural or family tradition
- Environmental concerns
- Personal preference
