When you choose Eirene, our promise is to ease the responsibility and stress placed on your family. You’ll provide a few details about your loved one, sign paperwork and we’ll manage the rest.

You’ll be kept in the know throughout the process, and once the cremation is complete, you will receive all necessary paperwork to continue with estate settlement. It’s the end-to-end support that families deserve, so you can refocus your time on mourning your loss.

Services suited to your needs

We offer cremation services, a sustainable alternative, as well as prepaid packages for families planning ahead. Whether you’re arranging for yourself or someone else, your peace of mind is our priority.

    Right from my first phone conversation with Stephanie at Eirene Cremations, I felt very comfortable. She answered all my questions and help to put my mind at ease. Throughout the process, she and Jennifer provided prompt, professional, and caring service. Their communication (phone and email) was excellent, and they always showed compassion. I would definitely recommend their services.

    Absolutely recommend this company, it is run by people who honestly care and you feel more like family than a customer. My wife passed away on May 12th 2022 and Eirene took care of everything for me from dealing with the hospital and cremation to bringing me the ashes and documents mostly pre-filled in for me (complete with stamped addressed envelope). Thank you so much Jennifer, Stephanie and Rebecca

    Sorry for this late review Jennifer. I was hoping to leave a review on your website, but have created this google acct. solely for the purpose of leaving this review. Well what can I say. Excellent service. I was able to speak with Jennifer at any time and always felt that I had her full attention as well as compassion throughout the entire process. Everything was handled perfectly and there were no surprises. If you are tired of the predatory practices of traditional funeral homes, Eirene Cremations is a welcome alternative. Oh and by the way, the Burlington facility was beautiful. Couldn't have asked for more. Do yourself a favor and at least explore this company for your cremation needs. I can truly say that I'm glad I did. Thanks again Jennifer and myself and family are doing well Sincerely, Brian Smith

    I don't do online reviews, but in this case I needed to make an exception to ensure others who are going through the loss of a loved one make the right decision and choose Eirene Cremations. From the moment I contacted Jennifer of Eirene I felt that the confusion and disorientation of losing my mother and being responsible for all the many steps required to handle and record a death, were under a kind and guiding hand. Jennifer of Eirene Cremations answered all my questions, ensured timely and clearly defined services (body pickup, cremation, death certificates, death registration etc.), and listened to me in my time of grief. She followed up to make sure I was ok and that I was working through the many steps required. An included service of Eirene was a connection to Cadence, where I met Rachel. She assisted me with going through all the steps as an Executor and provided me with guidance and even a spreadsheet to track assets and liabilities, giving me a structure to work from. I should also add that my mom died 5 days before Christmas and both Jennifer and Rachel were available to help me throughout the holiday period; including having my mom's ashes delivered directly to my home. Contacting Eirene Cremations was the best decision I made during this terrible time and I highly recommend them.

    Eirene’s cremation service was exceptional.. the funeral director was prompt and courteous. They prepared all the government paperwork for me. The grief and bereavement counsellor who delivered my husband’s remains was supportive and empathetic. I would highly recommend this service to anyone seeking cremation of a loved one.

    I was in panic after my father became sick suddenly and I needed to make all arrangements for his passing. I had called ,emailed etc other places and they did not pick up the phone or message back for a week .I called Eirene ,they picked up the phone immediately and not only that ,they were compassionate and understanding. There is enough stress during a time of sorrow, Eirene eases one less stress. Thank you for the care and respect you showed my Father and I❤️

    I had never dealt with any family passing myself, and was looking things up online and came across Eirene. It honestly was the best decision I could have ever made. Jennifer took great care of everything I needed, and knew exactly what had to be done, and was beyond friendly and respectful when dealing with my mother. When she dropped off my mother's ashes to me at my home, she even sat and we had a chat for a while. For someone like me who was completely clueless, she made it a great experience. Honestly, I will never forget her kindness. And I am truly, TRULY thankful for Eirene and for Jennifer. I very highly recommend Eirene in the unfortunate event that you need these services. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Eirene gave us such dedicated care and personal attention to my siblings and myself when our Dad passed. It really was seamless and comforting for us not to worry about the details. I contacted Eirene when Dad went into palliative care and they assisted us throughout the entire time.

    If you are reading me, I have a little idea of what you are going through and there are no words strong enough to comfort you. My husband passed on August 4th, 2021 at the age of 63. I was devastated and I had to go through the funeral arrangements. From my first contact with Eirene Cremations, I was taken in charge, guided, reassured and advised on the processes and it made me feel secured. I would not hesitate one second to recommend this team of kind and caring professionals.

    I can’t stress enough how grateful I am for Jennifer at Eirene. When I called her up, I was in a situation where I had no time to prepare and I was not left with any guidance or wishes for my mother’s passing. I was extremely distraught and Jennifer was so supportive and compassionate with me the entire time. The beauty of this company is that there is complete honesty and transparency. I truly appreciated the flexibility and the absence of pressure with regards to making choices to honour my mother. The website is very organized, user friendly and was extremely helpful to me.

    Our family was seeking guidance for cremation services. After comparing pricing with several competitors, we were sceptical at first with Eirene's pricing but was pleasantly surprised that their services were identical to others. The staff acted quickly to care for our loved one and their reassuring follow-ups were so appreciated. We highly recommend their services. S.D.

    Jennifer and her staff at Eirene were wonderful in assisting me and my family. Each member was so understanding, compassionate, and professional throughout the entire process. Dealing with the loss of a loved one during COVID-19 was all the more difficult. Unsure of what to do or expect, I was so relieved that Jennifer was able to navigate me through the whole cremation service process with ease and in a timely manner. Not only did Jennifer hand deliver our loved one’s remains directly to our doorstep, but she also spent time talking to us while we reminisced about the life of our deceased loved one. I highly recommend Eirene for their services. Judy Belle

    Eirene Cremation and Jennifer Connolly was there for me and my family. Losing my mother during a pandemic and never having to go through this experience I was lost and grieving. Jennifer and Eirene took care of everything, from collecting my mother at the hospital to getting the death certificate and filling out the paperwork for the government. They were kind enough to deliver my mother ashes to my house. Thank you Jennifer and Eirene for being there for me, my mother and family. I have recommended you to everyone I speak with. Sincerely, Gail E. Durham Regional, Ontario

    Caring and responsive. When I had trouble using their online portal to make arrangements, JC from Eirene called me immediately -- they noticed the mis-programmed page was throwing an error and called me, knowing that the last thing I needed at this difficult time was to deal with a finicky web page! After that, Eirene handled everything so I could deal with other things that needed my attention. Happy to recommend them.
