Since Saamis began in 1990, they have received enormous support for the people of Medicine Hat and the district. Our main objective is to provide compassionate and caring service at fair and affordable prices. At the time of death with a loved one, we are faced with many important and stresseful decisions in the midst of deep sorrow. Our qualified staff are ALWAYS there to respond to your need and requirements of you and your family. They will provide answers to all of your questions, suggestions when making decisions, and provide comfort and a quiet strength.
The costs of services usually include the use of the funeral home facilities and equipment, transportation, motor vehicles and professional services provided by the funeral home staff. If you choose burial, burial costs
will also be a factor. Consumer preferences really dictate the cost of the other items such as casket, vault or grave liner, memorial urn (for cremation only), clothing, flowers, monument for the grave, memorial cards, register books, etc.
Most funeral homes have between ten and twenty-five caskets that can range in price from thousands of dollars to a few hundred dollars. The material, the quality of workmanship and the grade of interior fabric dictate the price. Caskets can be constructed of metal, hardwood or wood by-products.
If cremation is chosen, a casket or cremation container is selected to transport the deceased to the crematorium and for the funeral service if the cremation is to take place after the service. After the cremation, the cremated remains are usually placed in a memorial urn that has been selected by the family. Again, prices of the caskets and urns are dependant upon the materials in them and quality of workmanship.
Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel and Crematorium has a wide selection of quality caskets and urns at varying price ranges. Please contact
one of our staff should you wish additional information.
