Reception Room of Complexe funéraire Sylvio MarceauAt Complexe funéraire Sylvio Marceau, we understand that losing a loved one is a difficult, emotional experience. We also know that every life is unique and every family is different. That's why we take the time to ask questions—How did your loved one live his or her life? What did that person love the most? What made them laugh?—and learn about the individual before helping plan a service.

Whether you are seeking a basic cremation with a champagne toast, a full traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial and a coffee-and-cake reception, or a creative outdoor celebration complete with live music, favourite foods and personalized mementos, we take care of every detail.

Front Exterior of Complexe funéraire Sylvio Marceau In 1908, Sylvio Marceau founded his funeral company in Québec City’s Saint-Sauveur district. A savvy and hard-working business person, he prioritized building enduring relationships with families in need, and his company flourished. Sylvio died in the early 1940s, and Wilfrid Dubois, who owned another funeral home in Saint-Sauveur, on Durocher Street, took over the company. Wilfrid operated both funeral homes until Joseph-Honoré Bureau bought them in 1953.

Joseph-Honoré consolidated and then grew the business under the well-known and much-respected Sylvio Marceau's name. He closed the Durocher Street location and opened funeral homes on Marie-de-L’Incarnation Street and Notre-Dame Street in L’Ancienne-Lorette, which was his hometown. When Joseph-Honoré died in 1976, Claude Bureau took over his father’s company. Later, Claude’s son joined Complexes funéraires Sylvio Marceau as well.

In 1997, Complexes funéraires Sylvio Marceau became part of the Dignity Memorial® network, the largest group of licensed funeral service providers in North America. A year later, the company added a new funeral home in Charlesbourg, as well as a crematorium. Today, nearly 100 years later, Complexes funéraires Sylvio Marceau, with 3 locations, continues to be a trustworthy, compassionate resource for funerals, burials and cremations for the residents of Quebec.
