What exactly is Wareing Cremation Services?

We are a licensed Transfer Service. A Transfer Service, exactly like all funeral homes in this province, is regulated by the Bereavement Authority of Ontario.

Our staff is licensed. Paul Wareing has been educated at Humber College in Toronto, Ontario. He has successfully completed examinations to secure his license as a Transfer Service Sales Representative in 2013. Barbara Wareing has been educated at Humber College in Toronto, Ontario. She completed the Funeral Pre Planner course of study first, then Barbara completed the Funeral Transfer Service Sales Representative course of study, with Honours, and successfully completed her examinations to secure her license in 2015.

Do you know what to do when someone dies?

Ours is a vocation to facilitate the wishes of the deceased. At Wareing Cremation Services we have the integrity to provide for those who are experiencing loss and to be the advocate that they need. We feel it is our obligation as bereavement professionals to provide complete information – to outline all of the options available to the individual – so that our clients can make informed decisions.

Many people mistakenly believe that our purpose is to transfer the deceased from the place of death to the funeral home….this is incorrect!

We are able to provide for families from the time a death occurs – whether that is in hospital, at home, nursing home or hospice – through to the return of your loved one’s cremated remains or in the instance of direct burial bringing the casket to the graveside.

Wareing Cremation Services provides completed CPP death benefit and survivor benefit applications, Proof of Death Certificates, we can assist with composition of a death notice for the newspaper and we will submit to the newspaper for you. When you decide to meet with us, we can explain everything covered in our basic services price list and what other additional services our license allows us to provide.

Our view is that the services we can provide allow for the return to families being present and involved in the stages of a loved ones’ death and the funeral ceremony. Families choosing to use Wareing Cremation Services take on the responsibility for the planning and coordination of the Celebration of Life or Church Service for their loved one. We can and will provide contact information for Clergy, Officiants, Venues, Caterers, and Florist if this is something your family needs. This hands-on involvement in the ceremony process – no matter how simple or elaborate that is - are the true steps to the acceptance of death and loss, support given and received, and the beginning of healing.

As human beings we observe religious and cultural ceremony to honour our dead and to celebrate the life lived. Paul Wareing and Barbara Wareing have come to see our purpose as the constant and continuing improvement of the traditional. We would encourage you to use the eventual certainty of death as your inspiration to live…..pour all of what you are into a life that inspires, strengthens, and brings a smile once you are a memory.

Wareing Cremation Services is honoured to serve the families of our community as they take those last steps.
