Viewing Services - Timmins Funerals

Take the time to say goodbye

If you decide to hold a viewing, this can be a very important time for those close to the deceased. We understand how significant the decision to hold a viewing is, and we will be there to guide and support you throughout.

Many traditions and cultures hold a viewing as part of their funeral process, and in this case we will show you how to follow the traditional procedures. If a viewing is not appropriate or not desired then that is ok too, whatever you decide to do is fine.

We’ll help you find the right location for your viewing

Speak with us about the options for holding viewings. We will do everything in our power to support your choices so everyone can say goodbye.

Hold a private and personal viewing in our funeral home

This option will give you the special time you need to say goodbye to your loved one in private. Usually held by invitation only, you will be able to control the people who attend and ensure there is no need to rush.

Hold a religious viewing or vigil in your place of worship

We respect your religious rites, and will help you hold whatever kind of viewing or vigil you would like in your chosen place of worship. These events may be public or private, and you should discuss what you would like with your religious official.

Hold a public viewing just before the service

A viewing just before the funeral will allow everyone to say their own goodbye if they wish to. This can be a suitable option for a viewing if you have people who are travelling long distances and may be arriving just in time for the funeral.

With a public viewing, although everyone will have the chance to say goodbye, time limits may be required for the service to proceed as scheduled.

Viewings can create precious memories

Saying goodbye can be a valuable part of your grieving process, and we respect your wishes at this difficult time. If you’d prefer some other place for a viewing (such as a private home or community space) then talk to us and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
