Simple Wishes of the North
Thank you for visiting our website. If you have reached this site during a time of loss or sorrow, please accept our heartfelt condolences. Simple Wishes of the North is very proud to be part of the Greater Sudbury community and our Funeral Director has the ability to serve our families in both French and English in our comfortable setting. Although we are licensed under the Board of Funeral Services as an actual funeral home (Class 1), our focus is to provide simple services such as direct cremations or direct burials. Unlike a licensed transfer service where your options are very limited, Simple Wishes will have the opportunity to legally offer the community a few additional services. These services include but are not limited to our assistance at a memorial service (church, community hall or other venue) or at a local cemetery for a graveside committal service. These services will be available while still keeping in mind affordability. Since we do not hold public visitations or memorial services at our current location, you will have our full attention when we greet you at our door.
