Tania and Patrick were absolutely wonderful, working with us to plan my Dad's funeral. It was Dad's wishes to have a very simple and low key service, and with Tania and Patrick guiding us we were able to fulfill his final wishes. They kindly and efficiently took care of everything, and we never for one moment felt any pressure to buy more than we wanted or needed. In fact just the opposite, they informed us of alternative options even if it meant less revenue for Basic Funerals. I can't say enough good about the service we received. I would highly recommend calling Tania and Patrick to plan yours, or your loved one's funeral. You'll be glad you did.

In June 2013 I lost my little brother he was only 22yrs. At that time I was also 8months pregnant with my first child. It was really an unexpected passing and hard to accept. I really had to be strong for my baby to come but for both my parents who had just lost their son. I called up Basic Funerals and had the opportunity to talk with Patrick Larkin the Ottawa funeral director, from my first phone call he reassured me right away no pressure at all, the process of gathering all the information and getting things started was done without me having to run anywhere or do more call. I was and still am amazed of all is professionalism and empathy he had towards me and my family. With the unexpected passing we dint really know want to do at all but Pat took all of his time to explain and asked us what we really wanted. He also was able to have my little brother looking like an angel (due to is death circumstance) for us to be able to view him and spend one last hour with him to say our final goodbyes. It was not the first funeral home i dealt with but it is surly the last and only one that we will be calling when the unfortunate event of loosing someone will reoccur. We will never be able to thank Pat and ALL the Staff at Basic Funerals... for their exceptional care and compassion they gave us. We will be forever thankful, thank you will never be enough to express all my gratitude. A1 service for a very affordable funeral no need of the big funeral home has long has there here.5 Stars is not enough they deserve a lot more in my books... Steph

Basic Funerals fulfilled all our requirements . They came to the house, draped the stretcher with a flag as the deceased was a vet. They arrived in an unmarked vehicle which was appreciated as we live in a small rural community. When we went to pick up the ashes there was a folder of all the required paperwork for Federal and Provincial governments already filled out . We were treated with the utmost respect and kindness by all. Excellent service. I am so grateful we chose this company.

I recently had one of your Pre-Planners ( Tania Tack )at our home to discuss what our options and our final wishes would be.I found Tania to be very knowledgable and professional in explaining the different packages that Basic Funerals offer. We had such a wonderful day .I certainly recommend Tania and am looking forward to speaking with her again in the future. Fran Luth

I would not hesitate to recommend Patrick Larkin, to anyone who wishes professional, knowledgeable, thorough information about arranging a funeral. Patrick is personable and friendly, as well as open to all questions. He gives you the bottom line on all funeral costs with options of your choice. Thank you Patrick for the time you spent with me. I now feel well prepared for end of life arrangements for both myself and my husband.

From start to finish, the staff at Basic Funerals were wonderful to deal with. They handled all our families needs with the utmost professionalism and compassion. I would highly recommend Basic Funerals. "Basic" is not indicative of the high level of quality and caring you receive. Thank you all for helping make a very sad time a little more bearable.

I can't say how impressed and pleased I was with the pre-planning experience I had with Tania of Basic Funerals. Her warm, friendly personality made what might have been an unpleasant experience completely the opposite. It was a huge relief to me to get this done and I would recommend Tania and Basic Funerals to anyone, including my closest friends and relatives.

We made arrangements for my brother who was battling cancer over a year earlier. When he passed in March one phone initiated these arrangements which were smoothly completed. Phone calls were promptly responded to and we were very pleased with the professionalism of all Basic Funeral personnel with whom we were involved. I would not hesitate to highly recommend them to anyone needing their services.

Great service. Very professional and considerate. Was available right away during a late night call, and helpful through the process. The most affordable option available. Paid extra to receive the ashes and certificates to our home. I would highly recommend for when this service is needed.

I couldn't have asked for better service. And the price was less than half of the places in my home town. Great people to work with.

We were so IMPRESSED with BASIC FUNERALS and by all the great reviews that, though years ago I had pre-selected another Funeral provider, I could not but change my choice for BASIC FUNERALS.  The prices are phenomenal; many choices for all needs; customer service, simply outstanding. Tania (licensed funeral Pre-Planner) kindly answered ALL my MANY questions over days of email communications. Very dedicated lady. So the contracts are signed and we are happy and at peace with our choices.  All was done in the comfort of our home through emails and the easy process of electronic signatures. Amazing technology. 5 STARS is an understatement.
