Pre-planning is a big decision. You want to choose a reliable company that will be there when you need it – and for generations to come.
At Arbor, we help you handle all your final arrangements in advance including funeral, cemetery, or cremation options to help ease the pain and grief for your family. It helps ensure that your cemetery and funeral plans are done to your taste. It’s also a smart way to save on expenses when the time comes.
Why should I pre-plan?
It’s a sound investment with added cost savings.
It’s difficult and stressful to plan a funeral, cemetery, or cremation during a time of need. By pre-planning, you take care of all the decisions and make all the financial arrangements in advance, reducing the stress on your family members.
As cemetery land grows more and more scarce, and more expensive, the value of the land you’ve selected will appreciate over time, making pre-planning a sound investment.
Planning ahead can also potentially save you thousands of dollars, reducing the financial burden on your loved ones. By making your plan at today’s prices, you protect your estate from inflation and rising costs tomorrow. And, you even have the option to pay in monthly installments.
Funeral traditions and customs
At Arbor Memorial, we celebrate the rich diversity of funeral traditions and customs that reflect the unique desire and personality of each family and culture.
Many families value the opportunity to select a preferred location in our Chinese Gardens. Your family may prefer a crypt, indoor mausoleum, or even a family estate. After all, this is an important place where loved ones will gather for generations to come.

Our Chinese gardens honour universal principles in Chinese culture and values, while bringing out the best qualities of the landscape.
For more than a decade, we have been building Chinese gardens at Arbor cemeteries across Canada. Every Chinese garden is unique reflecting the desires and personality of the local community and creating a space for you to have lasting memories.
The design team has created every garden to maximize sunlight. Memorials most often face south in our Chinese gardens so that your loved one’s place of rest has lots of sun. We also carefully place any trees in the garden around its perimeter so that shadows fall away from the monuments.
