About

Since longtime Courtice funeral directors, Ronald Raaphorst and John Town, opened Courtice Funeral Chapel in 2001, we have helped families in the Durham region deal with their losses with compassion.

Our funeral home

Sitting area at Courtice Funeral ChapelOur beautiful brick funeral home sits on lush manicured grounds on Highway 2, near the Courtice/Oshawa border, close to a number of cemeteries and churches. With large visitation rooms, a chapel that seats more than 200 guests and a spacious reception centre for post-funeral gatherings, our facilities are comfortable for families of all faiths. Large windows let in lots of natural light and interiors with warm colours and fireplaces create a homey atmosphere. Our parking lot is easily and safely accessed from the highway, and we have a covered pick-up/drop-off area at the main doors.

Our caring team

The friendly, caring staff at Courtice Funeral Chapel puts your needs first. Most of our staff have worked in the Courtice/Oshawa/Bowmanville area their whole careers and consider themselves your friends. They, along with our management team, believe deeply in community service. They coach local sports teams, sing at retirement and nursing homes as part of the Oshawa Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, and are members of the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs.

Courtice Funeral Chapel also sponsors several charities as a company, including the Heart & Stroke Foundation and Diabetes Foundation. We are also committed to helping Courtice area churches raise money and attend many church dinners and social events as a group.

Unique and memorable funeral services

Reception room at Courtice Funeral ChapelOur goal is always to provide meaningful and lasting memories in a professional and personal way. What does that mean for you? Perhaps you want a traditional funeral at a nearby church followed by a cemetery burial. Or maybe it's a no-holds-barred celebration of life, complete with live music, catering and a roof-raising send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one.

Either way—or anywhere in between—we make the occasion special. From bagpipes to cupcakes, puppies to putters, bird-shaped urns to blue marble monuments, we take the things that mattered to someone and bring them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial.

Continued care

What's more, our compassion doesn't end after the funeral does. Our funeral home has a dedicated family service counsellor who specializes in grief support, and you have access to our 24-hour Compassion Helpline®. Please call us for immediate assistance planning a funeral or information about planning ahead.

A trusted funeral home

As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, Courtice Funeral Chapel gives you not only the warm, familiar attention you expect from a locally operated funeral home but also the value you deserve by way of the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers in North America.

"From the moment we met with James Monroe we were impressed by the level of professionalism, compassion and detail he provided with such gracious ease. He made the planning of our loved one's funeral seamless from start to finish. James also provided his own personal touches which we greatly appreciated and valued. We would highly recommend James Monroe and Courtice Funeral Chapel for all funeral planning and arrangements. They go above and beyond and the service they provide is exceptional."

"The staff at Courtice Funeral Home are so respectful to everyone who walks in the door. Planning a funeral is overwhelming for the family but the staff at the Funeral Home were of great assistance getting us through it. We are forever grateful for their professionalism and guidance especially during a provincial lockdown where the rules are very strict, the staff guided us through the planning for the visitation and funeral."
