When my husband passed away September 27th, 2022 the word thanks seems so inadequate for the friendly, compassionate, professional, care and service we received. With ease they got us through the most difficult time of my life. So impressed with all they did. Special thanks to Nicole and Kelly. I would recommend Simply Cremations.

My son passed away very suddenly on March 10th 2023 so we had to fly out from Winnipeg to Calgary. This was an extremely difficult time for our family. We had so much to do in such a short time.. I thank Simply Cremations for being there for us for preparations as well as the Aftercare. and Kelly also did a great job . The staff was truly amazing, compassionate friendly and accommodating.. Michelle the funeral Director did a great job of assisting the family during this difficult time.. Thank you so much and we appreciate to be there for us every step pf the way. I can't thank you enough for all your support.

We used Simply Cremations this past fall when my dad passed away. The name alone was indicative of my dad, he was a simple man. The facility inside is modern and tastefully done. Nicole greeted and guided us through the process of making the arrangements and was there till the end of the memorial luncheon. She was truly amazing! She was professional, caring, compassionate, helpful and informative of the servicers they provided. At no time was there any pressure regarding any of their services. I am truly thankful to Nicole and Simply Cremations for making this process so much easier to navigate during a most difficult time for our family.

I used Simply Cremations this past January when I lost my husband. The entire staff from start to finish have been amazing. Nicole handled all the arrangements. Her compassion and professionalism is second to none. I used Mckinnis & Holloway last May for my son and the service was horrendous. They mishandled everything from our initial visit to the when I cam to pick up my sons ashes and found out they had no idea where they were and sent me running around the city trying to find him. I was devastated. I thought more money meant better service but that is not true. Simply cremations gave wonderful at a fraction of the cost. I purchased my cards and guest book with them and received far more then I had expected. The aftercare with Kelly was wonderful. She even waited until my friend could come to be my support. Not once did I feel rushed, pressured to spend more money, actually the entire time I felt like me, my husband and our family mattered.
I can not thanks them enough for the wonderful care and attention that I received.

The staff at Simply Cremat;ions was very kind and helpful when my husband passed away in April 2022. Evan and the staff took their time and listened to us and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend them.

I couldn't have asked for better care for my son, and me. They are wonderful people - kind and empathetic. I most highly recommend them. They put up me being so upset too. Really very kind people.

When my husband died last September the staff of "Simply Cremations" helped me through the most difficult task of my life. Kurtis took the time to explain the process to me. The aftercare service I was offered was excellent. I have asked my son and daughter to use Simply Crematons when I die. I know it will make a difficult time for them just a little easier. To all the staff; Thank You.

Simply Cremations was recommended to me following the sudden death of my husband. I was told Simply Cremations was affordable and their staff was very compassionate and helpful. I found Simply Cremations to be both and more. Kurtis helped me through the process of arranging a viewing and cremation. There was no pressure; Kurtis simply listened to what I was saying and feeling and made very helpful suggestions. He made the process go very smoothly. Kelly was also a very big help in filling out all the government-required forms taking a tremendous load off my mind. Everyone at Simply Cremations was kind, comforting and professional. I highly recommend Simply Cremations to all.

From the moment I first spoke with Kurtis I knew everything was going to be ok. I had been looking around at different funeral homes and came across Simply Cremations right away. I didn’t have the energy to do a bunch of searching and comparing, and honestly I really didn’t need to.
My mom passed away last week, and I’m thankful from that moment Kurtis took everything out of my hands. He was kind enough to let me text with him so when I had a question that didn’t warrant a phone call I could just text instead.
My family and I are grateful for everything Kurtis and staff have done for us so far. I was always treated with the utmost respect from them.
Thank you Kurtis, for taking the most awful time in my family’s lives and making it easy for us at the end.

My father passed away this year and I was responsible for his funeral arrangements. He had communicated to me that he wanted a simple cremation and Simply Cremations seemed a perfect name for what we were looking for. My husband and I found the staff and care to be professional, respectful and all in all very helpful. The cost of everything was much less than what we had feared it may be. I greatly appreciate their support and would recommend their services to anyone going through their own difficult loss.

In February of 2020 we endured the unexpected passing of our stepmom. We called Simply Cremations as they had helped with our mom a couple of years ago. Both times the staff has been wonderful, sympathetic and knowledgeable. Never has a company that deals with people at their most vulnerable and emotional been more helpful and compassionate. Our family recommends their services highly. I do not remember all the names of the staff who answered our questions, returned our calls, endured our endless questions but each one was terrific to deal with. Thank you..

It was quite late on a Saturday evening that my husband passed and later yet when we called 'Simply Creations' on a recommendation from Victim Services. Simply Creations answered our call promptly and sent a representative to pick him up within the hour. From this first contact and throughout the next couple of weeks, we knew we had made the right choice. Both Kurtis and Kelly were compassionate, and professional. They were able to answer our questions and provide assistance in completing some government
forms. And their price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Simply Cremations.

Paul and Kelly went above and beyond helping in my grief of losing my mother of 94 years. Kelly helped with a lot of the paper work and even helped to close an account in the States. Paul was very kind to me when I first went to the funeral home. I can not say enough about this business. Thank you to all that looked after my mom.

Kurtis and Kelly were truly wonderful. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Working with Kelly took a lot of stress out of this experience. They care.

Learning that my father was diagnosed with a terminal illness and given a short time to live was very hard to accept. My Dad expressed his simple wishes to my sister and myself. I contacted Simply Cremations and was put in touch with Kurtis Rae. After a brief phone conversation and discussing my concerns about not knowing what steps would have to taken (as it would be a death at home), we arranged for a quick meeting the next day. I explained to Kurtis what our wishes and expectations were, and Kurtis took the time to explain the entire process. In short, Simply Cremations made what I considered to be an insurmountable task at a very emotional time very simple. I would like to thank all of the staff involved...... Kurtis, Gerriann, Nikita, Kelly. You all made a very difficult time very easy. My thanks to you all.

Would like to thank Rachel&Kurtis for their excellant customer service.
Very affordable and I felt comfortable with them Immediately after the first initial phone call after calling around several other funeral services and did not have a very friendly experience from them.
I really like how they have onsite crematorium so I know my dear brother left his home and went to only one place until he was cremated.
Simply Cremation is very Professional answers all the questions that we had and took time with us without any type of pressure.
Thank you once again

Our son passed away on the 4th of September. We approached Simply Cremations about their Services. We were treated courteously with both empathy and respect. There was no attempt to push services that we weren't concerned about and their professionalism was present through the after care as well. They answered all our questions and helped with every problem from the cremation through to the obituary.

I would highly recommend Simply Cremations and Evan J Strong to anyone. They were compassionate, caring and very capable at every turn. They did an excellent job of directing our mother's arrangements despite complications on our part. Their honesty and extra efforts eased us through a difficult time. Outstanding people and service.

We were most impressed with Rebecca Kormendy as the most compassionate and interested person. Someone I would be most comfortable with. This proved to be true.


Very compassionate and friendly. Helped me with everything during my time of need. Thank you for all you have done.

My father died while on vacation in Canada. The staff was very responsive through email and answered any and all of my questions quickly. The services provided were done faster than I had anticipated, which I appreciated immensely.

Kristi Beroldi

My father passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly... I was lost. Thankfully I had help from a best friend who ended up calling Simply Cremations & Funeral Services, and from there the phone rep was extremely compassionate and assisted with all explanations and all my options being the sole next of kin... I can't thank Simply Cremations & Funeral Services enough...the staff was extremely helpful and informative...


From our first email contact, we found your firm to be very responsive. Evan was knowledgeable and helpful every step of his way. He provided good information and was never "pushy". The details on the day of service were handled very well with necessary consultation with family made in a polite, professional and considerate manner. We were pleased with the funeral "card". It turned out beautifully. The photo enlargement for the front of the church was beautiful, as were the flowers, guest book, thank you cards, candle etc. All of our family was happy with every arrangement you made. Thank you.


Very well organized despite the crowd that showed up! Staff helped to remove the stress of a very upsetting time. Thank you.


Our service with Simply Cremations was excellent. The thank you cards were beautiful we have since we lost our dad and the service card and thank you certainly didn't have the same professional look. We would of used Simply Cremations for our dad but your funeral home was too small and we had purchased plots already at Eden Brook, in 2000. Thank you. I would recommend you.


The people made the choices very easy were not pushy at all. It was also affordable. Thank you all. Brenda


Evan J. Strong, Creates no problems and solves all of yours. They supply a great asset. To meet and involve with them was a gift. They have solid knowledge never leaving you with doubts. High level of understanding and comfort.
