Crematoriums in Nova Scotia are located in most communities in the province. Here is how to find them including their location and contact information.

Crematoriums are funeral facilities that handle the cremation of bodies of people who have died. With many providers available, choosing the right one can be challenging. Below are tips for finding a crematorium in Nova Scotia near you and your family.

How to find a crematorium in Nova Scotia

Before beginning a search, it is vital to understand how crematoriums operate. Crematorium providers can operate independently, meaning the facility can be contacted directly to make final arrangements. Cremation facilities also work with funeral homes. Typically, the funeral home will handle most of the arrangements but outsource the cremation to a nearby crematorium. Some funeral providers also have funeral and crematoriums combined in one location.

The easiest way to select a crematorium for a loved one in Nova Scotia is to contact us at Eirene Cremations and make arrangements as we work with the best crematoriums in the province.

In addition to providing a place for the dignified disposition of the body of a deceased loved one, crematoriums may include facilities such as a chapel and columbarium. Therefore, knowing which services are needed when beginning a search for a crematorium or a cremation provider is essential. Some factors to consider include:

  • Type of cremation (direct cremation, full-service cremation, viewing, etc.)
  • Desired services (e.g., witnessing the cremation)
  • Budget
  • Location
  • Urn options
  • Prearrangements

Find a Nova Scotia crematorium online

To find a crematorium, you can also do an online search. Google is a good resource. So is Bing.com. Searching the terms "crematorium in (city or province name)" or "crematoriums near me" will produce a list and map of providers in the area. For example, search for "crematorium in Halifax" if you'd like to find a facility in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM).

The names, websites, contact information, and reviews of Nova Scotia crematoriums by city and region are also included on our lists below. Check the website's links and reviews to get insight into the facility's services and to read about its reputation. Local directory websites like Yellow Pages or Yelp can also be helpful when locating a crematorium.

Some provincial governments also list a directory for funeral providers in the key areas in their jurisdiction. For example, in Nova Scotia, the directory can be found on the province's open data portal (here). The page provides the name and location of funeral homes, crematoriums and cemeteries licensed to provide funeral merchandise or services in Nova Scotia. It also categorizes them by license type (e.g., funeral home, crematorium, etc.). For example here at Eirene, you'll see us listed in their directory.
